Looking Out For People With Disabling Conditions
If you suffer from a disabling condition such as cancer, fibromyalgia, CFS or depression, you have the right to expect your disability insurance policy to provide financial protection for you and your family. However, insurance companies regularly deny legitimate claims. Insurer investigations are all-too-often inadequate, and lead to unreasonable and bad faith disability claims denials. The results for the disabled individual can be catastrophic, both financially and emotionally.
- Unfairly denying a claim
- Unfairly delaying payment
- Terminating disability benefits

In the landmark disability insurance case of Hangarter v. Provident (UnumProvident), DL LAW GROUP attorneys Alice J. Wolfson, David M. Lilienstein helped obtain a $5 million punitive damages award for the client from the notorious UnumProvident (now Unum Group). The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously upheld the verdict.
