The Standard Insurance Company & Long-Term 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 The Standard denies a legitimate claim, they may be acting in bad faith.
Unfair disability insurance claim denial is one way The Standard may have failed to uphold its duty as an insurer, which has already resulted in countless disputes across the nation.
The Standard 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.
