Guidance And Legal Action For People Whose Benefits Are Denied Or Delayed

People who rely on health, life, long-term disability (LTD) and other forms of insurance coverage provided by Assurant and its subsidiaries are subject to the same injustices and abuses common to other major carriers. Common practices used to deny and delay valid claims often include:

  • Disability claim denials without proper consideration of medical evidence, including denials based on biased internal or “independent” medical opinions
  • Excessive delays in payment of LTD benefits, often accompanied by unreasonable demands for medical and financial information from disabled individuals and their families

At Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, our decades of experience litigating against insurance companies have covered the spectrum of confusing policy language, obscure and hidden exclusions, interactions between different types of available benefits, unreasonable information demands and much more.
