The New Insurance Paradigm – Blame The Insured

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

As experienced disability attorneys, we at Frankel & Newfield have seen the worst from third party administrators, claim adjusters, doctors for hire and investigators.

But a recent article in a leading insurance industry publication featured a subtitle that even we found infuriating. “As bankruptcies soar, some claimants eye insurers for their personal bailouts.” No individual we know would choose to suffer from a chronic illness or injury that prevents them from leading a fulfilling life, having a regular job and good health.

Employees of companies that have closed their doors as the result of the current economic climate are not slackers seeking a handout. And if their illness or injury coincides with a company’s shutting down, we don’t think that should be a punishable offense. If you are disabled but fear what might happen if you stopped working, call our office at 1-877-LTD-CLAIM (877-583-2524). You don’t have to go it alone.
