Comprehensive disability benefits & life insurance practice handling claims nationwide
Over the course of his 25 year career, attorney John V. Tucker has built a reputation for vigorous and effective representation in the field of disability and insurance law. Mr. Tucker leads a dedicated legal team with more than 40 years of combined experience helping individuals from all walks of life get the disability insurance, life insurance, and Veterans Service Connected disability benefits they deserve.
Providing a full range of disability law and life insurance legal services
Our firm regularly assists clients with the following types of disability claims and/or appeals:
- ERISA claims (employer group disability)
- Long-term and short-term disability insurance
- Individual disability and private disability income insurance
- Bad faith claims related to individual disability policies
- Social Security Disability and SSI
- VA disability benefits (Veterans service connected compensation), including Agent Orange and Individual Unemployability claims.
Many people have disability insurance and SSDI claims at the same time, and others have VA disability claims too. Our firm is one of the few comprehensive disability law practices in the U.S. capable of handling multiple claims at once, in an efficient, yet highly personal manner geared toward getting you paid disability benefits.
We also are experienced life insurance counsel handling:
- ERISA life insurance claims (employee and dependent life)
- ERISA accidental death insurance claims
- Individual life insurance policy claims
- Individual Accidental death and dismemberment insurance claims
- Bad faith claims related to individual life insurance policies or AD&D policies
Our team or ERISA attorneys and private life insurance attorneys have the knowledge to help you with any type of claim, including beneficiary designation problems, accidental death issues, and other life insurance claims. We handle ERISA claims all over the United States, and individual life insurance policy claims and lawsuits, along with bad faith lawsuits, in Florida.
How we can help with your disability claim
Private insurers and government agencies are not anxious to pay disability claims. Our experienced disability attorneys offer an advantage because we can speak the language of the decision-maker. We know what evidence they are looking for and can help you assemble it. If you need additional evidence, we can refer you to qualified medical or vocational experts. Because we are a comprehensive disability practice, we can file and appeal claims for private insurance and government benefits simultaneously, using the same evidence, saving you time and money.
Most people only seek out a disability attorney after their disability claim has been denied. Veterans, in fact, cannot hire a lawyer to assist with their initial VA disability claim filing. But, in other types of claims, if you have a disability that is not readily perceptible or measurable through medical diagnostics, such as back pain, a brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many diseases, having an attorney on your side from the very beginning can make all the difference between acceptance and denial. Certainly, you want a disability lawyer on your side if your claim has been denied, and you have to appeal.
Having experienced ERISA attorneys or private disability insurance attorneys is crucial to not only getting good advice, but winning your claim. Our ERISA attorneys handle cases all over the United States. If you have a disability insurance policy you purchased in Florida, our private disability attorneys can handle your claim and any related bad faith case in Florida.
How we can help with your life insurance claim
Our experienced life insurance attorneys understand the law that applies to life insurance and accidental death claims. Life insurers often deny claims that should not be denied on technical grounds, like problems with enrollment, beneficiary designation forms, or issues related to premium payments before a person died. Our team of life insurance attorneys can help you put together the evidence needed to win your claim appeal or lawsuit.
Committed to delivering excellent personal service
Our goal is to make your claim successful. We take the time necessary to properly prepare your initial claim, file your appeal, or fight your case at a hearing or in trial. We understand the impact a denied claim can have on an individual and their family. We know that if we don’t get our clients paid, they risk bankruptcy, or even worse, homelessness. We also understand the emotional impact that disability has on individuals who had derived meaning from their careers and must transition to a lifestyle that leaves them unfulfilled. Many of our clients have never even consulted an attorney before and have no idea what to expect. We want you to understand that we are personally invested in seeing your claim succeed.
When you come to our firm, you get direct access to a lawyer who cares about your case, who is committed to delivering a very high level of service, and who is sensitive to the situation in which you find yourself. We care that you get paid, and since we typically work on a contingency fee basis, we don’t get paid until you do. We know we have to deliver excellent legal services to win your case, and that’s what we’re determined to do.
