Disability Insurance Companies and Bad Faith Practices

Our goal is to protect medical professionals, lawyers, accountants, dentists, specialists, as well as other individuals in high-level occupations from the bad faith practices of LTD insurance providers. We understand that your insurance policy is a written contract between you and your provider that outlines the terms that both parties must abide.

If you have paid your expensive monthly insurance premiums and lived up to your end of the contract, your insurance provider must honor its responsibility by paying your disability benefits. In doing so, they are refraining from acting in bad faith. Some examples of what may constitute bad faith insurance practices are:
 

  • Making an Unfounded Refusal to Pay Insurance Policy Benefits
  • Causing an Unwarranted Delay in Paying Benefits
  • Using Deceptive Practices Against the Insured
  • Denying a Claim Without Conducting a Proper Investigation
  • Using an Unfair Advantage to Pressure the Policyholder Into Settling a Claim

Backed by extensive experience handling long-term disability insurance claims, our attorneys are adept at identifying bad faith insurance practices and countering them on behalf of our clients.
