Toledo, Ohio Disability Denial Claims
Disability insurance policies have become a popular way for insurance companies to accept your policyholder premiums year after year, all the while knowing that they aren’t going to pay so much as a dime or a dollar when you need them.
There is a short window of opportunity to contest a disability denial. Don’t delay.
At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, we fight to protect the rights of disabled people in the Toledo area and throughout Ohio against the unfair denial of their claims by insurers. Over the last 35 years, our lawyers have had success in these cases where others have not — to the point where our firm has become a consistent choice for referrals from other firms in this area.
Insurance companies use many tactics to avoid paying disability benefits. One of the primary ones is to send claimants to doctors that they choose. As it so happens, these “doctors” tend to come up with “medical findings” that benefit the insurance companies virtually 100 percent of the time. Often, these findings will indicate that the policyholder is not completely unable to work and that there is some work they can do. Fortunately for the insurance companies, this is just the excuse they need to deny coverage. Funny how that works out.
It’s anything but funny to our clients. We send our clients to the doctors who know them best so that they can get the diagnosis and treatment they need rather than excuses. We know how to counter the insurance company’s “expert” medical testimony with our own. We know their strategies. And we are not afraid to take them on at trial to protect the rights and interests of our clients.
