Many disabling mental conditions are all too real in their life-changing, work-ending impact on the victim, yet very difficult to substantiate with objective medical evidence.

Our experienced San Francisco psychiatric conditions attorneys are prepared to analyze any wrongful claim denial or other problems with your disability claim, whether you have employer-provided or independently purchased LTD coverage. Our firm’s entire focus is on winning benefits and damages for policyholders, and we can readily assess your specific case and legal options.

Decades Of Experience Helping The Disabled Obtain Benefits

If your disability is a mental or nervous condition, your right to benefits is almost certain to be contested — and our lawyers have experience countering all insurance company tactics for denying and “stonewalling” these claims. We have also handled many cases on behalf of people suffering chronic pain from physical conditions that California insurance companies claim are mental disorders excluded from coverage or have only a limited pay period.

Common obstacles for sufferers of disabling mental conditions include the fact that many disability policies either exclude such impairments altogether or limit the period of eligibility for benefits to two years. We will work to build the best possible case for you and compel your insurer to give your claim full and proper consideration.
