In 2010, Prudential Insurance was reported to be withholding the payout of life insurance benefits to the families of American soldiers in order to gain extra profits. The SEC has also found that Prudential was guilty of defrauding investors billions of dollars. If you have fallen victim to disability insurance denials from Prudential Insurance, you are not alone.
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 Prudential 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, Prudential may have claimed that you failed to disclose a pre-existing health condition or that the claim you filed was for a condition that is not a “covered” disability. Facing a denial of these benefits could be devastating to your financial stability and could also result in the:
Immediate loss of your regular income
Loss or foreclosure of your home
Loss of your savings
Denial of your health care
