Hartford Long Term Disability Insurance Claims
The lawyers at Frankel & Newfield have successfully represented many Hartford disability insurance policyholders in their fight to obtain or hold onto their disability benefits. We work with clients on Hartford short term disability claims, as well as long term disability insurance claims.
Hartford is one of the leading insurance companies in the group long term disability insurance field. In 2003, the Hartford purchased CNS’s group life and disability and medical and accident business, expanding its group benefits division. The Hartford celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2010 – but our clients who have disability insurance claim issues are not celebrating.
Many Hartford disability insurance policy owners have contacted us regarding challenges to their benefits. We represent claimants who were being paid and then were suddenly terminated, whose disability claims were denied and delayed. Our long term disability insurance lawyers know that the Hartford answers to its shareholders first – and to claimants never.
Our attorneys work with clients on Hartford short term disability claims, as well as long term disability insurance claims.
