Private Disability Insurance Claims in San Mateo

San Francisco Bay Area Lawyers Contesting Denied Disability Insurance Claims

If you own your own business or choose to purchase private disability insurance, you understand what it means to take a risk. This is why you purchase long-term disability insurance. If you were involved in an accident or get an illness that made it impossible for you to work, you need to know that you and your family will be protected.

While many people obtain long-term disability insurance through their employers, a large number of people, such as business owners and high-income professionals purchase this coverage, or buy supplemental coverage, through non-employer-sponsored plans.

The very fact that you are filing a long-term disability insurance claim means that you are in a very stressful situation. If your claim is delayed or denied, it only adds to your distress. If your legitimate disability insurance claim has been denied, you have the right to appeal.

At Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos we help people throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area contest denied health insurance and long-term disability insurance claims. We also help those with employer-sponsored disability insurance plans.

Investigating the Reason Your Disability Claim Was Denied

When an insurance company has denied your claim, our attorneys will investigate the contents of your policy to determine the reason for the denial and any reason it should be reversed. An insurance company may also be liable for punitive damages if it denies your claim.

Our firm is experienced in insurance litigation, and we never back down from insurance companies. To help our clients prove the legitimacy of their disability claims, we often seek out second opinion from medical experts or other experts in the area. Our clients and attorneys work together, forming a partnership to investigate, gather evidence, and prepare the case for trial.

If your insurance provider requires additional proof, forms or documents, we will work with you to supply it. If their requirements are unreasonable, we may be able to show that the insurance company is acting in bad faith. If they are, you may be entitled to seek punitive damages.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
