Disability Claims - Insurance Disputes
Many people have disability insurance policies through their employment, or purchase disability insurance privately. The purpose of these policies is to protect people who become injured or disabled. The policies typically provide “long term disability” (“LTD”) benefits and medical and rehabilitation benefits.
it may be necessary for you to sue the insurance company
Unfortunately, injured persons and their insurance companies do not always agree on whether the injured person is entitled to benefits under the policy. As such, it may be necessary for you to sue the insurance company to obtain the benefits you feel you require.
denial of benefits has caused you particular harm
In addition to claiming the benefits you feel you require, you can also claim “aggravated” and “punitive” damages if the insurer’s denial of benefits has caused you particular harm and if the insurer’s conduct has been inappropriate
Do Not Delay
For every claim, there are “limitation periods” (i.e. deadlines for suing). In addition, there are often deadlines for providing notice of your injuries and that you intend to pursue a claim. You may be barred from suing if you do not comply with these requirements. You may need to act quickly.
