A Widespread Problem

The unscrupulous practice of putting profit over human health is has long been associated with Unum, the world’s largest provider of disability insurance. A 2004 investigation determined the practice began as early as 1994, and a CBS 60 Minutes report revealed the company established a quota for denied claims and actually offered incentives to employees who denied valid claims from policyholders.

Thanks to court actions, Unum has been hit with stiff penalties, forced to reassess denied claims and ordered to pay back some of the policyholders who were wrongly denied service.

Unum is not the only insurance company that has been accused of wrongly denied benefits to policyholders. Any company that engages in such activity should be held accountable.

If you’ve been denied benefits to which you are entitled by your insurance company, you owe it to yourself to speak with one of our lawyers. Unlike your insurance provider, we will stand beside you in your time of need and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Has Your Insurer Unfairly Denied Your Claim?

Insurance giants like Unum are obligated under the law to deal with their policyholders fairly and openly. Instead, in some instances investigations have shown they have knowingly denied valid claims, boosting their bottom line at the expense of the policyholders who trusted them.

These misdeeds have cost Americans millions of dollars, forcing some into desperate financial situations as they pay for vital services their insurance company should have covered.

No one victimized by their insurance provider in such a way should remain silent. Legal action may be the only way for you to recover what is rightfully yours.

Was Your Claim Unfairly Denied?

By law, your provider is required to inform you in writing if your claim is denied and inform you of your options. They are also required to state the reason for denying the claim.

Companies like Unum, and others like Cigna and Standard, can be held accountable for denying claims for reasons such as:

  • Your failure to disclose a pre-existing condition
  • Failure to provide proper documentation on time
  • Your ailment is not a “covered” disability
  • Your procedure is “elective” or “experimental”

These are among several reasons that can be successfully challenged in court by our experienced lawyers. Our lawyers are familiar with insurance law, and they will sit with you to determine your best option. Each situation is different.
