Industrial Alliance sells short term and long term disability insurance policies. Some of the Industrial Alliance’s disability insurance policies are group policies through employers and others are private.
Many of our clients at Kotak Law have been surprised and upset when Industrial Alliance 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.
At Kotak Law our disability insurance lawyers have been successful in suing Industrial Alliance 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, cancer, heart disease or even stress alone.
