Has An Insurance Company Denied Your Cancer Disability Claims?

Discovering that a cancer diagnosis is not enough to satisfy insurance company requirements for payment of disability benefits can be an earthshaking setback for an already distressed individual and family.

At a time when you need to focus all your energy on medical treatment, you may find yourself facing a wrongful disability claim denial or burdensome requirements such as visits to independent medical examiners. Often, during and after treatment for cancer, the side effects of both the disease and the treatment of the disease including chemotherapy, and other adjuvant treatments including radiation and medication, can themselves impair a person's ability to work.

Obtaining long-term disability and other insurance benefits for people who have been treated for cancer is a clear focus at our respected, longstanding Bay Area insurance law firm. Our lawyers are prepared to exhaust all legal options in the effort to help you get the disability compensation you need to deal with medical expenses and replace your income while you cannot work.

Decades Of Experience Building Disability Claims For Success

In many cases, an insurer's position that a particular cancer is not disabling ignores the impacts of chemotherapy, radiation and other treatments on your ability to perform your work duties. We strive to ensure that all considerations in your case are taken into account and that you ultimately receive all the benefits available to support your recovery.
