Empire Life sells long term and short term disability insurance policies. Many of those disability insurance policies are offered through employers.

Many of our clients at Kotak Law have been alarmed and upset when Empire Life has denied or terminated their disability insurance claim.  Sometimes they are told that there is insufficient medical evidence or that the test for total disability has changed and there is some other job that they can do. They may be told that they haven’t completed the right rehabilitation program.

At Kotak Law our disability insurance lawyers have been successful in suing disability insurance companies and securing significant lump sum settlements for our clients who suffer from illnesses such as chronic pain, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, fibromyalgia, colitis, IBS, cancer, crohns, heart disease, migraines, or even stress alone.
