You are not alone. Many people in New Mexico have disability claims with insurance companies. Most people receive disability coverage through their employment. These group disability policies are generally governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).

The Importance of your Appeal
If the insurance company denies or terminates your benefits you will be allowed an appeal. It is important to provide the insurance company with as much medical support as possible. The support of your doctors is critical in getting your benefits. Following the denial of an appeal, your next step is to file a lawsuit against the insurance company.
Our disability lawyers can file lawsuits in the state of New Mexico. New Mexico law is not favorable for people in your position. Regrettably, most cases are decided under an “arbitrary and capricious” standard. This makes it difficult for people to receive benefits. Under this standard a judge cannot rule in your favor unless he or she finds the insurance company had no reason to deny benefits. Indeed, a finding that the insurance company was wrong is not enough to win in court.
It is important you submit as much proof of disability as possible with your appeal. This is because the record is closed once a final denial of benefits is made. In other words, one you lose an appeal you are no longer able to introduce new evidence in court. Our lawyers are aware of this and will work with you to gather the needed evidence.
