Our Practice Areas
The Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey are currently accepting cases in the following areas of Employment and Disability Law:
While the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was meant to provide a fair and impartial review of benefit disputes, many insurers use the Act to systematically deny benefits. Severely injured or disabled workers find themselves facing financial ruin when their legitimate claims are refused. By taking advantage of what many policyholders do not know, insurers often intimidate policyholders or manipulate them into thinking that their options are limited. We defend the rights of policyholders by handling individual policy claims which are governed by Florida’s Insurance Laws, as well as claims brought against group disability plans which are governed by ERISA. We are currently offering a free no obligation book, “Robbed of Your Peace of Mind” on what you should know about your employer’s long term disability insurance.

The Florida Retirement System Pension (FRS) bases its definition of “disability” on the opinion of an FRS administrator. While this would seem to be a reasonable condition for obtaining disability benefits, it could also prove disastrous for those that are unfamiliar with the process of reporting and validating their injuries. The attorneys at Cavey and Barrett have years of experience in removing doubt from claims of disability, and can help injured state workers get the compensation that they are entitled to and deserve. Some cities have their own disability plans. They use examinations by their carefully chosen physicians to counter what their own worker’s compensation doctors have said about your ability to work.
