Do You Feel That Cigna Has Unfairly Denied Your Disability Claim?

Have you experienced this? You or your employer pay premiums for a Cigna disability insurance policy with the hope that one day if you can’t work Cigna will honour it’s duty to pay you disability benefits.  Unfortunately, you cannot work due to a physical or mental condition. You complete the application for disability benefits and your doctor sends a supporting form on your behalf.  You anxiously wait for your disability payments to begin and Cigna does the following:

  1. Repeatedly requests that you send records or forms.
  2. Calls you and asks why you can’t work.
  3. Forces you to attend a particular rehab or vocational facility.
  4. Tells you that there is a lack of evidence to support your claim.
  5. Tells you that you have failed to take the right medicine.
  6. Denies or terminates your disability benefits despite what your own physician says.
  7. States that you have a pre existing condition.
  8. Tells you that you have applied for disability benefits too late.

If the above sounds familiar be rest assured that you are not alone.  The lawyers at Kotak Personal Injury Law are familiar with the manner in which long term disability claims are denied by disability insurance companies.
