ERISA denied the benefit, after a man died of a heart attack, claiming he had a pre-existing condition.
Chicago, May 19—The Law Offices of Michael Bartolic warns that more and more employee benefits such as long term disability and ERISA government life insurance benefits are being denied due to “pre-existing conditions. When ERISA recently denied a policy, ERISA life insurance lawyer Michael Bartolic got involved.
ERISA denied the benefit, after a man died of a heart attack, claiming he had a pre-existing condition. “We were able to prove that there were no records of treatment during the pre-existing condition look-back period, said ERISA life insurance lawyer Bartolic. As a result, the claim was reinstated and the widow received the full benefit she was entitled to.
Beyond being a successful ERISA life insurance lawyer, Bartolic has also been very successful in representing clients as a long term disability attorney. As a long term disability attorney, he recently and successfully represented a client who lost a leg to amputation. The benefit was granted when long term disability attorney demonstrated that the coronary artery disease the insurance company claimed was a pre-existing condition was too far removed from the leg loss.
“Whenever you are denied an employee benefit, it’s a good idea to consult with a qualified benefits attorney,” Bartolic explained. “You need to know your rights because, oftentimes, you are being denied compensation for what you are entitled to.“
