We recently posted information in this space about how disability insurers use surveillance to investigate the lifestyles of their disability claimants to try to uncover evidence that the claimants’ activities are inconsistent with the medical conditions underlying their disability claims. In other words, a video of a claimant mountain climbing might suggest they are not disabled from congestive heart failure.
At DI Law Group, we represent professional athletes in their claims for long-term disability insurance often based on debilitating mental or physical injuries. Obviously, professional sports are not gentle on bodies or brains and disabling injuries can prevent a pro athlete from continuing to earn a living in their sport. In severe cases, these injuries might keep them from working even in less strenuous jobs.
When Florida residents have a medical disability that keeps them from working, they often depend on their disability insurance to help them financially survive. Unfortunately, insurance companies sometimes refuse to pay, leaving people between a rock and a hard place. Such is the case with a Chicago man.
