We recently settled a client’s disability insurance case for $290,000.
The client was a self-employed trucker, and he sustained permanent injuries in a truck accident in 2003. He has been unable to work since that time, and due to his back injuries it is doubtful that the client would be able to return to work.
The client carried his own disability insurance. His insurance company failed to pay benefits since 2005. Essentially, the insurance company kept stalling and gave one excuse after another for not paying. For example, it had many physical exams over the course of three years even though it was clear that he was permanently disabled.
We sued the insurance company, and in short order we obtained an excellent settlement which consisted of both past disability benefits from 2005 to the present and a lump-sum buy-out of the insurance company’s future obligations to pay on the policy.
If your disability insurance benefits have been denied or if the insurance company is stalling on making payment, please feel free to contact me for a free consultation at (800-581-1434) or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prior case results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
