Wrongful Aetna Disability Claim Denials
Insurance companies operate to achieve one goal: create wealth for their executives and investors. This wealth may be generated at the expense of policyholders through unfair claim denials. Long-term disability insurance denials provide a clear path to increased profits and an improved bottom line.
Insurance companies hold a legal duty to their policyholders to act in good faith and fair dealing. If Aetna denies a legitimate claim, they may be acting in bad faith.
Unfair disability insurance claim denial is one way Aetna may have failed to uphold its duty as an insurer, which has already resulted in countless disputes and lawsuits across the nation.
Aetna not paying claims could be devastating to a person’s financial stability and could even result in the immediate loss of regular income, loss or foreclosure of a home, loss of savings, and more.
But you do have options to fight back against their decision. If Aetna denied your claim, contact Sokolove Law today.
We may be able to help you appeal the denial and secure any benefits you may be owed.
