Social Security Disability Denial Cases
Many policyholders/Social Security Disability Beneficiaries have heard the same list of excuses as to why their claims have been denied. Reasons given for a disability denial vary, everything from failing to receive documentation on time to the ailment not being a covered disability. Sometime the insurance company may allege that the pain is not severe enough to prevent the employee from working. Even when evidence proves a disability denial wrong, benefits are very often withheld and require an attorney's assistance to recover them.
Disability insurers have been found liable for denying coverage on disability claims brought by disabled professionals. In the 1970s and 1980s some of these insurers grossly oversold disability policies to younger professionals, anticipating that few claims would mount from this low risk population. However as the policyholders aged and professionals became disabled, the disability claims mounted steadily. Some of the companies decided to cope by unfairly denying disability claims to cut their losses.
Bad faith claims are basically a breach of the insurance contract, when insurers use non-legitimate reasons to deny claims. Insurers have a duty to the insured to examine claims in good faith and use fair dealing when evaluating claims. To act in bad faith requires the insurer to engage in unfair dealing, and is not just a mistake.
Most lawsuits involve action against an insured's own insurance company, and arise in situations where the insurance company unfairly and without proper cause, fails to compensate the insured for a loss covered by the policy, or unreasonably delays making payments due under the policy.
