Disability Lawsuits Against Unum

Contact Goodman Acker P.C. Today: (248) 793-2010

Resources state it is not surprising that long-term disability coverage has declined by six percent from 2009 to 2013 given that Unum, one of the top disability insurers in the United States and formerly known as Paul Revere, Provident, and Unum Provident, continues to wrongfully deny long-term disability benefits.

At Goodman Acker P.C., our Detroit short and long-term disability lawyers are prepared to pursue disability payments on behalf of those who have been denied for illegitimate reasons.

When you choose to entrust your case to our team, we will be able to provide you with the following:

Common Unum Denial Strategies

According to sources, Unum utilizes a wide range of denial tactics, including the following:

  • Altering policies after claims are filed (without knowledge of policyholders and without authorization)
  • Obtaining opinions from unqualified experts and inadequately investigating claims
  • Misreading medical records, often by Unum’s independent examiners
  • Demanding repeated requests for medical examiners or denying claims without medical examinations
  • Arguing the claim is a pre-existing medical condition
  • Denying a claim with the intent to wear the claimant down to a decreased settlement
  • Only partially paying a claim for total disability
  • Declining to acknowledge certain disability such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and mental disorders
