Disability Insurance Class Action Lawsuit

A class action is a type of lawsuit that can be brought against an insurance company whose actions have damaged a group of people in a similar way. One person who has been injured may bring a class action on behalf of everyone who has been harmed. Our law firm has resolved a class action against one of the world’s largest disability insurance companies as a result of unfair claims handling practices. Class action lawsuits have very strict criteria that must be met in order for the suit to survive. It is common, however, after the action has been started for many other injured people to join the class action lawsuit and become class members.

Several long-term disability class action lawsuits have been filed over the past 20 years against Unum alleging the company has purposely denied disability benefits or terminated claims of disabled policyholders.

Please contact us if you have a potential disability insurance class action that you think would benefit multiple policy holder that are similarly situated.

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.
