Long-Term Disability Insurance Claims

At Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, our insurance attorneys have a long and successful history of helping people with long-term disability insurance obtain the full amount of benefits they are entitled to receive after suffering a disabling injury or developing a career-ending disease.

We represent the full spectrum of individuals who have purchased private disability insurance, as well as people in disputes regarding their employment-sponsored disability insurance, coverage which is generally governed by ERISA.

Playing Games With Your Future

Some insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid payment of long-term disability insurance claims:

  • They will hire private investigators to secretly photograph or videotape policyholders, hoping to gather evidence on which to base a claims denial.
  • They will comb past medical records for a suggestion of a preexisting condition.
  • They will send you to their own doctors for an evaluation that is slanted in the insurance company's interest.

Insurance companies are particularly reluctant to pay claims for disabling conditions that they claim have no objective evidence of injury. Our attorneys understand that not all disabilities show up on an X-ray or MRI.

We can help you obtain your claim file so you can review the information on which the insurance company is basing its claim denial.
