Ventura County Disability Denied Insurance and Bad Faith Claims Attorneys
Disability insurance is a product; something you purchase to protect yourself, and perhaps your family, in the event you become disabled and can no longer work. Most people don’t even think about their insurance policies until they need to file a claim, and then, they believe that all they need to do is file a claim and their benefits will be paid in a timely manner. Unfortunately, that is all too often not the case.
If your disability claim was denied, it is possible that the insurance company made a mistake. Maybe a piece of documentation was missing or they misinterpreted your claim. Such honest mistakes are possible, and our attorneys have the ability to quickly resolve them. However, many denied claims are the result of the insurance company’s failure to fulfill their duty of good faith and fair dealing. If your insurer fails to investigate your claim appropriately and to give as much consideration to your needs as it does its own, you may be the victim of insurance bad faith.
In these cases, we may be able to file a lawsuit for either breach of contract or bad faith. A successful breach of contract lawsuit can help you recover the money you should have been paid in the first place. You may also be able to receive interest on the money that was withheld. An insurance bad faith lawsuit can allow you to recover the same, with the addition of additional money to cover attorneys’ fees and other damages. We have the experience to take the appropriate action on your behalf.
Our Lawyers Work Hard To Make It Clear To Insurers When A Medical Condition Is a Disability
At Donahue & Horrow, L.L.P., our lawyers can assist you in making a claim for disability benefits. As part of this service, we will educate you about the definition of disability on your insurance policy so that you understand your policy terms, what benefits you nay be entitled to received. Having an attorney assist you in filing a disability claim can improve your chances of receiving benefits sooner than if you file a claim on your own. Disability insurers work hard to look for ways to deny claims to avoid paying disabled policyholders and we work hard to make sure they do not get away with wrongfully denying you your your benefits.
We will strive to make certain that your medical documentation makes it clear that your condition meets the insurance company’s definition of a disability. Making certain that everything is presented correctly to the insurance company can prevent hurdles further down the line.
