Tampa Attorney for Disability Insurance Disputes
If you cannot work because of a mental health issue, being rejected for disability benefits only compounds the problems. At Corless Barfield Trial Group, we are committed to helping clients with legitimate mental impairments or emotional disorders to get the benefits they need and deserve.
Our Tampa legal team handles administrative appeals and litigation relating to long-term disability policies or qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). If you have been unfairly denied benefits, or if an insurance company is playing games with your valid claim, we will fight to compel payment or sue for bad faith.
We offer a free consultation and claim evaluation. Call 813-498-1623 or 877-517-5595.
Mental/Emotional Disability Claims
Mental impairment claims are often challenged by insurers who dispute whether the claimant is truly disabled. Our job is to gather medical and psychiatric evidence, as well as lay testimony of family members, employers or co-workers, to corroborate the claim and secure regular benefits or a settlement.
We have been successful with all types of mental/emotional disability claims:
- Cognitive impairment, as from a brain injury
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Clinical depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Anxiety disorders (panic attacks, phobias)
