A look at The Hartford Disability Claims Denial Process
The claims denial process used by The Hartford reflects a pattern that continues to be the subject of disputes. Many federal lawsuits throughout the United States allege wrongful conduct by this insurance company in their handling of disability claims.
- Claimants are faced with continuing requests for medical records, followed by unreasonable delays on the part of The Hartford to make a decision.
- Policyholders frequently allege that The Hartford resorts to surveillance and other invasive investigations in order to capture claimants in actions that could in some way be used to substantiate The Hartford disability claims denial or termination of benefits.
- Disputes are common with allegations that The Hartford uses physicians paid by The Hartford to review and evaluate a claimant’s medical records; allegations against The Hartford also state the company uses adjusters to take the statements of disability victims in a manner unbeneficial to the victim.
- Disability claims are frequently denied by The Hartford the first time around, only to be approved once the victim retains a disability attorney to fight on their behalf.
