Ask A Disability Lawyer

Why is the insurance company refusing to pay my long-term disability claim when I am clearly disabled and unable to perform my job duties?

Disability Benefits - Question 159
The insurance company representatives may attempt to deny your claim by suggesting that you have not provided proper evidence of medical disability. The insurer may also claim that your specific ailment is not quantifiable (such as depression or psychiatric disorders) and therefore not subject to benefits. Your disability lawyer can combat this by getting thorough documentation from your physician and clearly showing that you are disabled under the language of your policy.
