Firm Profile

At Disability Insurance Law Group, we exclusively represent individuals at all stages of their disability, long-term care, health and life insurance benefit claims. Our clients benefit from the knowledge and expertise that comes with a focus in these areas and decades of combined experience in protecting the rights of individuals in insurance benefit claims.

We have earned a reputation among the insurance companies, benefits administrators and their attorneys for our meticulous preparation of claims and aggressive representation of our clients. Our law firm includes a former insurance defense attorney who is intimately familiar with the countless ways insurance companies seek to protect their bottom line and wrongly delay or deny payment of a claim.

Success Against Numerous Insurance Companies and Benefits Administrators

Our attorneys have been successful against numerous insurance companies and benefits administrators based on our knowledge of the way claims are reviewed and our experience. Tactics commonly used to delay or deny claims include:

  • Misinterpreting ambiguous or unclear policy language
  • Purposely misconstruing the information in medical records and other documents
  • Failing to request and/or obtain the proper evidence necessary to fairly and objectively review an insurance claim
  • Utilizing in-house reviews without providing the insured the opportunity to respond to any erroneous comments or conclusions
  • Endless requests for unnecessary documents and information
  • Failing to convey to the insured all of his or her rights under the policy
  • Failing to advise the insured of all contractual, legal or ERISA deadlines which, if ignored, could result in the loss of your right to pursue the claim in or out of court
  • Failing to appropriately apply or consider applicable level of care guidelines
