• Tips About a Unum Medical Examination in a Disability Benefit Claim
  • Disability Insurance IME Exams Are on the Rise

What should I expect at a medical examination requested by Unum disability insurance company?

Unum regularly request examinations of their customers and these exams are mandatory. Unum calls these exams Independent Medical Exams “IME”, but they are compulsory. Unfortunately these medical examinations are often biased as Unum is the company hiring the doctor. In this video, attorneys Rachel Alters and Cesar Gavidia discuss the common things to expect if you have been requested to attend a compulsory medical exam. Unum often uses these exams to look for a reason to deny a long term disability claim. You need to be prepared if an IME exam has been requested by UNUM. Contact our lawyers for a free consultation.

Questions About Hiring Us

Do you work in my state?

Yes. We are a national disability insurance law firm that is available to represent you regardless of where you live in the United States. We have partner lawyers in every state and we have filed lawsuits in most federal courts nationwide. Our disability lawyers represent disability claimants at all stages of a claim for disability insurance benefits. There is nothing that our lawyers have not seen in the disability insurance world.

What are your fees?

Since we represent disability insurance claimants at different stages of a disability insurance claim we offer a variety of different fee options. We understand that claimants living on disability insurance benefits have a limited source of income; therefore we always try to work with the claimant to make our attorney fees as affordable as possible.

The three available fee options are a contingency fee agreement (no attorney fee or cost unless we make a recovery), hourly fee or fixed flat rate.

In every case we provide each client with a written fee agreement detailing the terms and conditions. We always offer a free initial phone consultation and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you in obtaining payment of your disability insurance benefits.

Do I have to come to your office to work with your law firm?

No. For purposes of efficiency and to reduce expenses for our clients we have found that 99% of our clients prefer to communicate via telephone, e-mail, fax, GoToMeeting.com sessions, or Skype. If you prefer an initial in-person meeting please let us know. A disability company will never require you to come to their office and similarly we are set up so that we handle your entire claim without the need for you to come to our office.

How can I contact you?

When you call us during normal business hours you will immediately speak with a disability attorney. We can be reached at 800-682-8331 or by email. Lawyer and staff must return all client calls same day. Client emails are usually replied to within the same business day and seem to be the preferred and most efficient method of communication for most clients.

I had a wonderful experience with my attorney. She explained everything to me on what to expect from her and what she could do for me. She kept me informed all along the way. She answered all my questions anytime one would come about.
