At McMahan Law Firm, LLC, our legal team handles two types of long-term disability (LTD) cases:

  • LTD cases governed by ERISA—The disability insurance policy was bought through your employer.
  • Non-ERISA LTD cases—The disability insurance policy was bought by you as a personal policy.

We can also help you pursue life insurance or health insurance benefits. When it comes to dealing with large insurance companies, we are here to level the playing field and provide you with a better chance at achieving a positive outcome.


If you have been wrongfully denied benefits under your disability, life, or health insurance policy, we can help. We are not afraid of a fight, and we are highly skilled in the courtroom. Our firm successfully litigated the wrongful denial of claims against some of the largest insurance companies in the country. We litigate LTD claims on a nation-wide basis. Our outstanding track record speaks for itself. Additionally, few law firms are equipped to handle ERISA claims.

Often, insurance companies take full advantage of the unfair ERISA laws and mistreat claimants by denying benefits. With the guidance of our Dalton LTD attorneys at McMahan Law Firm, LLC, you can have a better chance of challenging your claim's denial. We not only know how to develop a strong medical file but also successfully engage in protracted conflict of interest discovery litigation in federal court to force the insurance companies to turn over documents that expose their bad behavior.

Put our reputation for success to work for you. Contact us at (706) 907-0767 to get started.
