I found Todd Krauss & Associates through a website that provides information and advice to people who are pursuing a Long Term Disability claim. One piece of advice was to find an experienced attorney to represent you. I had started things on my own and sure enough had hit a wall with the claims process. I had also procrastinated and my deadline for appeal was fast approaching. I was very appreciative when Todd took my call and my case.
He quickly got up to speed on my situation with work and my health issues. I was happy to find he understands autoimmune disease and how it affects the ability to work. He explained how the insurance appeal process usually works so that I was prepared to go through the necessary steps to have the best chance of being awarded benefits. He also let me know the obstacles and resistance we could face so that I wouldn’t have unrealistic expectations.
Todd took off a lot of the stress by staying ahead of the deadlines, making sure proper documentation was attained and referring me to a doctor who could examine me and review my (extensive) records. Even though the doctor was seeing me only to do an independent evaluation, he made some good suggestions for tests and treatment options that could be useful for me.
I am grateful to say my claim was approved and even though the entire process took over a year, it was resolved within eight months of Todd taking my case. His fee was reasonable and well worth the stress and work it saved me. Even if it seems obvious you qualify for benefits due to your disability, it’s likely you can’t get through this process on your own.
If someone I knew was pursuing LTD benefits I would refer them to Todd Krauss.
