Disability Insurance Law – Why You Can’t Do This Alone

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

When confusing symptoms experienced by Charles Tucker, a 48 year old accountant from Florida, were finally identified as Multiple Sclerosis, he filed a claim for disability benefits from Standard Insurance Company.  Standard didn’t deny the claim outright, but instead strung him along for five months.  Tucker obtained his medical records and was stunned to learn that a reviewing doctor on Standard’s payroll who never met him had made the determination that there wasn’t enough medical evidence that he had MS.  This is standard operating procedure for disability insurance companies. Tucker contacted Good Morning America about his problem, and one day after the national morning show put Standard Insurance under its bright lights, Tucker’s claim was approved.

Moral of the story:  the disability insurance companies have nothing to lose by delaying and denying claims.  If a policyholder doesn’t pursue a claim, there’s more revenue in their pockets.   They’ll wait until you start fighting back – and hope that you won’t.  Call our offices today to learn how we can help you fight for your benefits.
