Lawsuits against Unum, the disability insurance giant, have been the topic of TV news coverage, a multi-state investigation, state insurance commissioners, and years of negative press. More regrettably, this is also a topic around the kitchen table of many of its own policy holders whose claims were unfairly denied.
Unum sells short-term and long-term disability coverage. Many disability lawsuits against Unum fall under federal ERISA guidelines which govern group insurance benefits. Other actions against Unum include bad faith lawsuits in the matter of claims denied or terminated under individual disability coverage.
If you have been denied disability payments by Unum, you’re not alone. With Unum’s history of claims denial, it’s no surprise that lawsuits against Unum cross our desks on a steady basis.

In our 20 years of fighting insurance claim disputes, we have exhaustively monitored the methods Unum uses to wrongly deny or delay claims. We know the way the company operates.
Some tactics are meant to wear you down, such as consuming you with months or years of endless paperwork. They may ignore your treating physician’s reports, or say they never received them.
Other tactics are meant to deter and dissuade, such as discrediting your doctor’s recommendations and medical reports. Unum may insist that you are able to work, even though the Social Security Administration finds your claim for social security disability benefits is fully justified.
