For over 25 years, John V. Tucker has helped people get ERISA Disability, Indvidual Disability, Accident Death, Life Insurance, & VA Benefits.

ERISA Disability Attorney
Federal Law - Representation all over the USA

Mr. Tucker represents individuals in Long Term Disability Insurance claims under their employer's group disability plan in all 50 states.  These group claims are regulated under a federal law called ERISA - the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.  Mr. Tucker has extensive experience handling disability claims and claim appeals.  He has also handled hundreds of ERISA lawsuits in  federal courts. As a former law professor who taught a course called ERISA Litigation Skills, Mr. Tucker is uniquely qualified to handle your ERISA Disability case.



Individual Disability Insurance Attorney
Florida Disability Attorneys for Representation in Florida

Mr. Tucker also represents individuals in Florida Insurance claims and lawsuits involving Disability Insurance.  These claims often include bad faith. Private Disability Insurance that is bought in Florida usually is litigatted in Florida courts or the Federal Courts in Florida, and you need a Florida lawyer who knows Florida disability insurance law to represent you.



ERISA Life Insurance & AD&D Attorney
Federal Law - Representation all over the USA

When someone buys Life Insurance or Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance through their employer's group, the federal ERISA laws apply to that coverage.  In addition to his wide experience with ERISA Disability cases, Mr. Tucker has extensive experience representing beneficiaries in ERISA Life and Accidental Death Insurance claims.



Individual Life Insurance Attorney
Florida Life Insurance Attorneys for Florida Policies

If a Life Insurance dispute arises involving an Individual Life Insurance or Accidental Death Insurance policy issued in Florida, you need a Florida attorney versed in Florida Life Insurance Law to assist you.  Mr. Tucker has a wide range of experience handling beneficiary disputes and other Life Insurance issues that arise when insurers do not want to pay claims.

VA Disability Attorney - Veterans Service Connected Compensation Appeals
Representation all over the USA

Representing veterans from Alaska to Florida and California to Maine, Mr. Tucker aggressively fights to get veterans service connected disability compensation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  The VA routinely denies claims that should be pain, and Mr. Tucker will battle with VA to get a veteran the benefits they are due.  This includes handling claims for Total Disability Based Upon Individual Unemployability, when a veterans service connected conditions prevent them from working.

Veterans who are not rated 100% disabled by VA but cannot work may still apply for Total Disability Based Upon Individual Unemployability (also called "TDIU"). If TDIU is approved, the veteran is paid at the 100% level. To qualify, the veteran has to be rated with one service connected disability at 60% or must have two or more disabilities with a combined rating of 70% or more (and one must be at least at 40%). They must also prove that their service connected disabilities keep them from working.
