The Hartford, one of the largest insurers in the United States, is a Fortune 500 company with over $20 billion in profits. Maintaining or exceeding this profit margin is its sole operational goal and bolsters the pockets of its executives and investors. Unfortunately, this wealth often comes at the expense of its policyholders through the denial of long term disability claims.
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 The Hartford 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, The Hartford may have claimed that your medical examinations were insufficient or inadequate or that there were problems with your paperwork or documentation. 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
