Wrongful MetLife Benefits Denials
Even loyal, long-term policyholders who have been paying regular premiums for years can fall victim to disability insurance denials — whether these denials are valid or not.
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 may be able to file a bad faith claim.
Unfair disability insurance claim denial is one way in which MetLife has allegedly failed to uphold its duty as an insurer, and it has resulted in countless bad faith lawsuits throughout the nation.
