The Truth about Disability Insurance for Lawyers
When you file a claim, you expect it to be honored. The reality is many insurers are strongly motivated to deny payment of merit-worthy claims in order to protect their bottom line. Denying “high-end” disability claims (such as those filed by attorneys) only increases the profit for the insurer and its stockholders.
The tactics used by insurance companies to wrongfully deny claims are powerful and sophisticated. Our attorneys have fought this battle successfully hundreds of times through appeals and litigation against these mega-corporations.
When Attorneys Become Claimants
When attorneys find themselves in need of skilled legal counsel, it is often foreign territory for them. Even in your impaired condition, you may attempt to appeal the denial on your own behalf. Unless you are an experienced disability lawyer, this is as dangerous as retaining inexperienced legal counsel.
In fact, the insurer will gladly receive a letter of appeal from a disabled attorney, as the effort of constructing an appeal will only be used as evidence that the attorney is capable of performing work.
