After 20 years helping California plaintiffs obtain long-term disability payments, this LA employment law firm now represents U.S. clients nationwide

ENCINO, Calif., May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingsley & Kingsley, a California employment law firm that represents individuals in lawsuits against employers in unpaid wage, discrimination, overtime, and other cases based on corporate wrongdoing, today announced the launch of a national Long-Term Disability Insurance Claims practice.

Long term disability insurance was created by the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974. It is intended to help support individuals who become sick or injured and cannot work. Unfortunately, what should be a straightforward process is often complicated by insurance bureaucracy and is subject to delay or even denial of claims, according to Los Angeles labor attorney Eric B. Kingsley, partner at the law firm.

"We've seen too many cases of people who faithfully paid their premiums for years and then had their claims unfairly denied by their long-term disability insurance companies. When legitimate disability insurance claims are denied, it leaves people without a steady income," said Kingsley. "Our law firm has been handling long-term disability cases for more than 20 years here in the Los Angeles area. We're rolling out a 50-state practice so that more people can benefit from our experience."

Many people think that long-term disability benefits only cover injuries that happen on the job, but according to Kingsley, more than 95% of these claims are estimated to be non work-related. For example, cancer, mental illness, chronic illnesses, neurological disorders, and certain degenerative diseases may all be covered by a long-term disability insurance policy.
