Helping Clients Collect Their Deserved Long-Term Care Benefits
Long-term care insurance policies have been heavily marketed since the 1990’s. While these policies promise to pay for the care of those who are no longer able to perform the activities of daily living, they do not necessarily deliver results. An increasing number of aging policyholders are submitting long-term care claims only to discover the policies they have been paying on for years do not cover the care they require.

We are not afraid to take on the largest and most powerful insurance companies in the nation. We have successfully recovered tens of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients.
San Jose Long-Term Home Care Attorneys
Long-term care insurance is a contract in which you pay timely premiums, and the insurance company provides coverage for long-term care expenses if the need arises. These insurance policies generally cover the costs of a nursing home, assisted living or in-home care.
As an enormous aging segment of our population is entering these facilities, insurance companies have become inundated with claims. Unfortunately, insurers drastically underestimated the costs associated with this type of care. In an attempt to avoid paying benefits, they are making paperwork more burdensome, routinely denying benefits and seeking to significantly increase premiums.
When you are facing long-term care expenses, the last thing you need is to worry about how to pay an attorney. Therefore, we handle long-term care insurance cases on a contingency fee basis. That means we do not get paid until you do.
