Podiatrist Disability Claims

Long-Term Disability Lawyers Helping with Your Claim

Own Occupation or Occupation Specific Disability Insurance for Podiatrists

Companies like UNUM, MetLife, Mass Mutual, Northwestern Mutual, and others aggressively marketed what is known as “own occupation” disability insurance policies to physicians. These policies are meant to insure a podiatrist’s ability to perform the duties of his own occupation.

The definition of disability can vary depending on the disability insurance company. Most define total disability to mean the inability to perform the material and substantial duties of your occupation while others, like Northwestern Mutual, requires you to be unable to perform the principal duties.

Regardless of the definition, what we have seen is insurance companies conduct a very intrusive investigation into your occupation. The purpose is to find aspects of your day to day duties that they can claim you can continue to perform despite your illness or injury. In this way, the insurance company can deny a claim for total disability.

Our lawyers are experts in handling disability claims for physicians. Our specialization positions us to anticipate ways in which an insurance carrier may try to redefine your occupation or otherwise use a tactic to delay or deny the claim.

Podiatrist Disability Insurance Claim
