About Seattle LTD Insurance Claims
Are you regularly employed in Seattle? You probably are being provided long term disability insurance benefits through your employer. In particular, a major insurance company like UNUM, CIGNA or LINA, MetLife, or Prudential has likely has probably sold an employment-based insurance policy, also called a group insurance policy, to your employer. When you need long term disability insurance benefits, you will have to interact with them, which could be a problem.
You might be self-employed in Seattle, though. The city lends itself to new businesses, entrepreneurs, and independent contractor work. You can be provided long term disability insurance benefits through an individual plan you purchase using your own funds. Major disability insurers, such as AXA Equitable, Principal Financial, UNUM, or Mass Mutual insure what is known as own occupation disability insurance. These policies tend to be more lucrative, but claims for benefits are often challenged and denied.
Disability insurance claims can be tricky to manage. Insurance companies use several tactics to deny benefits. Disability claimants have the burden of showing they are disabled from working in their own or any occupation, whatever the standard may be. Insurance companies will use their own doctors to conduct reviews of medical records and prepare a report that often does not support a finding of disability. Even worse, an independent medical examination, or IME, can be a way to deny a claim.
Our disability lawyers are aware of all the tactics to delay or deny a claim. We work closely with our clients and their doctors to ensure the medical evidence is strong, the physician’s statements are properly completed, and pressure is put on the insurance company to approve the claim for disability benefits.
With many years of experience, the firm has acquired significant knowledge in how to handle each specific insurance company. This includes UNUM, Hartford, Aetna, Lincoln Financial, CIGNA or LINA, and more. Every insurance company is different, but the firm’s focus on this area of the law allows us to know what approach works best for our clients.
