We pay for disability insurance based on the hope that the coverage will be there if we are unable to work due to an injury or illness. Unfortunately, when you file a claim, the insurance company that took your premiums may go to great lengths to avoid paying you.
I am Clark Thurn, a disability insurance lawyer in Minnesota. From my office in Roseville, I represent people throughout the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area who have disputes involving disability insurance. As a former disability insurance company attorney, I understand how to make insurers pay. I have handled thousands of disability insurance claims. I offer a free initial phone consultation to discuss your case.
Insurance Company Tactics To Deny Disability Claims
- They may search through your medical files to find out if you were ever treated for the same illness or injury in the past. If so, they will try to claim that your disability is a pre-existing condition.
- They may send you to insurance company doctors who will say that you are not disabled after a brief examination.
- They may hire private investigators to videotape you in an attempt to find evidence that you are not disabled.
Before I started representing disabled individuals, I was an associate general counsel for a life and disability insurance company. I understand the tactics that insurance companies use to deny long-term disability claims. I also know how to overcome those tactics and get insurance companies to pay.
