Attorneys Challenge Insurance Companies in Own-Occupation Disability Insurance Cases

Southern California Leaders in Law

After an injury left a California periodontal surgeon unable to use his dominant hand, he was shocked when his insurance company denied his disability insurance claim.

“Even if you make timely payments for years, your insurance company doesn’t really work for you. Insurance companies are businesses, and denying and underpaying claims are tactics many use to maintain their profits,” explains Michael B. Horrow, an insurance bad faith attorney and co-founder of Donahue & Horrow, LLP. “But remember that getting a letter of denied claims does not mean that is the end of the issue. Wrongfully denied claims can be appealed and our lawyers can hold the insurance company accountable if they acted in bad faith.”

In case after case going toe-to-toe with some of the largest disability insurers in the nation, including UNUM, Cigna, Hartford, MetLife and many others, Donahue & Horrow, LLP has established itself as the “go to” firm for own-occupation disability insurance issues and recovered tens of millions of dollars for its clients.

“Doctors, dentists, lawyers and other professionals purchase private disability insurance for their own specific occupation,” says Horrow.

“Own-occupation disability coverage is an expensive product, but it provides peace of mind. Purchasers are assured they will be able to continue to provide for themselves in the event a disability makes them unable to work in their current occupation. By law, insurers must honor their word.”
