Dental surgeon sues Paul Revere Life Insurance Company for wrongful denial of long-term disability benefits

A California disability lawyer filed a federal lawsuit in Federal Court against The Paul Revere Life Insurance Company (Paul Revere). The Plaintiff, Eric W., DDS, was employed as a dental surgeon and took out an individual long-term disability coverage policy by Paul Revere. The Plaintiff had paid all premiums on time, making him eligible for all benefits covered by the terms of the policy.

In Eric W., DDS v. The Paul Revere Life Insurance Company, Plaintiff has filed this lawsuit to gain the long-term disability benefits that he was entitled to under the terms of the policy and that were wrongfully denied by Paul Revere.

Case Facts Against The Paul Revere Life Insurance Company

The Plaintiff was employed as a dental surgeon. On or before July 12, 2010, Plaintiff suffered a loss equivalent to that described in the terms of the policy. Due to sickness or injury, he was unable to perform all of the material and substantial duties that were required of him as a dental surgeon. This has resulted in a significant loss of the income he would have otherwise generated. As a result, Plaintiff submitted a long-term disability benefits claim.

Denial of Long-Term Disability Benefits By Paul Revere

In October 2011, Paul Revere rejected Plaintiff’s claim for long-term disability benefits. This has deprived the Plaintiff the right to receive the benefits he was entitled to under the terms of the policy.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Shari W.

I was a healthcare provider when I became ill with 2 rare diseases. I was on long term disability 2 years when they started playing games. “We think you can work full time”. Then one day they called and said we are not paying you anymore, have a nice day. Needless to say my husband and I were devastated to face this financial loss when we felt we were covered by all the insurance we had. We had provided them with anything they asked for. My LTD company had abandoned me. I needed a voice. That’s when I found Dell & Schaefer.
