Lincoln Financial is one of the largest and most profitable insurance companies in America. As a billion dollar company, its primary goal is to create wealth for their executives and investors. Unfortunately, this wealth is often generated at the expense of its policyholders through its routine denial of long term disability denials.
Disability Insurance Denial and Bad Faith
Insurance companies hold a legal duty to their policyholders to act in good faith and fair dealing. If your insurance company has failed to uphold this responsibility, you are able to sue on a bad faith claim. Unfair disability insurance claim denial is an example of a way in which Lincoln Financial has failed to uphold its duty as an insurer and has resulted in countless bad faith lawsuits throughout the nation.
If you have been denied your long term disability benefits, Lincoln Financial may have claimed the following:
You failed to disclose a pre-existing health condition
Your medical examinations were insufficient or inadequate
There were problems with your paperwork or documentation
The claim you filed was for a condition that is not a “covered” disability
Our findings indicate that your procedure was elective, not medically necessary
Even loyal, long-term policyholders who have been paying regular premiums for years can fall victim to disability insurance denials. If you become ill or injured and are unable to work, you may need to depend on your long term disability insurance for your financial security. Facing a denial of these benefits could result in the:
Immediate loss of your regular income
Loss or foreclosure of your home
Loss of your savings
Denial of your health care
