Bay Area Disability

As if coping with a disabling injury or career-ending disease were not enough, many professionals, executives and other workers across the spectrum of life in the Bay Area have their health, disability, long-term care, life or other insurance claims denied, delayed or challenged with burdensome administrative and medical requirements.

These actions force individuals already suffering from the loss of their health, their jobs, or a loved one to fight through a complex web of requirements and information at a time when they are least equipped to do so. Our accomplished Bay Area disability lawyers assist policyholders with all kinds of insurance claim disputes statewide throughout California.

Disability Lawyers in the Bay Area

We have helped thousands of ill and injured individuals obtain compensation from major insurance companies through civil litigation in state and federal courts all across California. Our firm is well-positioned in the heart of San Francisco to assist clients throughout the East Bay, North Bay, Peninsula and South Bay areas and beyond, including:

  • Alameda and Contra Costa County cities such as Oakland, Berkeley, Hayward, Richmond and Fremont, Concord, Brentwood and Livermore
  • Santa Rosa and other communities in the North Bay counties of Napa, Marin and Sonoma
  • Cities on the Peninsula and into the Silicon Valley, such as San Mateo, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale and Cupertino

At Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, our lawyers strive to enforce the rights of individuals who are wrongfully denied benefits under long-term or short-term disability policies of all types, as well as life insurance, long-term care and other insurance policies. Other valid claims arise from insurers' delays, when they make unreasonable and irrelevant demands that amount to "stonewalling" the claim and covered individual or surviving family members.

We have handled complex disputes involving all types of disabling conditions and won many significant verdicts and settlements over major disability insurance companies.
