Disability Insurance

Disability Insurance Lawyers Holding Insurance Companies Accountable

People purchase long-term disability insurance to protect against the loss of income that can result from a debilitating illness or injury. Although you hoped never to have to use long-term disability insurance, this coverage can provide a vital source of income to you and your family while you are unable to work.

Unfortunately, many insurance companies fail to provide insurance coverage according to the terms of the policy. When this happens, families can suffer immense financial hardship as a result.

Few law firms anywhere in California or in the United States can match Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP’s resolve and skill representing clients in bad faith insurance claims. Our law firm is committed to providing decisive, strategic representation for people who have been harmed by insurance bad faith.

Many insurance companies engage in shameless actions to avoid paying disability claims. For example, insurance companies may hire a doctor to examine a claimant. Although these doctors are supposed to be independent, they generally make diagnoses that are in the best interests of the insurance company. In particularly egregious situations, a doctor may confirm that a person is in fact disabled. Sometimes, an insurance company may disregard this doctor’s opinion and simply find another doctor who will toe the party line. In other situations, insurance companies will spy on claimants or unreasonably target claims for denial.

A Record of Success in Insurance Bad Faith Litigation

Our law firm has had particular success taking on insurance companies who fail to live up to the terms of their policies. Most recently, attorneys Mark Quigley and Ivan Puchalt tried and won a case against UNUM for their failure to live up to the terms of an individual disability insurance policy. The jury found in favor of our client and awarded $4.2 million to our client. Of this $4.2 million, $3 million of this award was punitive damages. These damages are intended to prevent future egregious acts by UNUM and other similarly situated companies.

We accept all insurance bad faith claims on a contingency basis. Our clients will not pay attorneys’ fees unless we recover compensation for your losses. Call 310-576-1200 or contact us online to discuss your situation.
