Attorney For The Hartford Disability Claims Denials

The Hartford (The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.) is just one of more than 40 long term disability insurance companies, but they have the reputation of being one of the most difficult to deal with. The Hartford purchased CNA in 2004.

This is what The Hartford typically does before denying (or terminating) LTD benefits:

  1. They will send an investigator to your house and interview you for hours.
  2. They will conduct video surveillance of you
  3. Send you to a compulsory medical exam by a doctor of their choosing, or a functional capacity exam (FCE)
  4. Have your file reviewed by an external doctor (who has never physically examined you)
  5. Send a biased, skewed questionnaire to your treating physician in order to bait your doctor into filling it out in an unfavorable way
  6. Continuing requests for more medical records, followed by unjustified delays to make a decision
  7. Sending you an authorization to release medical information, which they will use to obtain medical documents they are not entitled to

The Hartford has established a clear pattern of denying rightful claims in the interest of saving themselves some money.

The Hartford Long Term Disability Insurance Appeals Lawyer

If you are disabled and can no longer work, you may apply for short term benefits and long term benefits if you own such a policy. If you are an employee and your employer provided LTD insurance as an employee benefit, your claims and lawsuit will be governed by ERISA.

Doesn't matter how compelling the information is. You must include it in your appeal, or the judge will not even consider it.

What Can The Disability Legal Center Do For Your Hartford LTD Case?

While we can help clients with their initial claim for long term benefits, this is something most people can and want to do on their own.

WARNING: No matter how strong your claims application is, The Hartford can still deny your claim, even with compelling evidence and documentation.

A denial of your application for LTD benefits is not the end of the road, however. You are allowed to appeal this decision. In fact, if your policy is covered by ERISA because it's an employee benefit, you must appeal your decision before moving forward.

WARNING: You have a time limit to appeal The Hartford's Denial. Usually this is 180 days from the day you receive the denial letter. Do not waste any time, and consult with a lawyer immediately. Give us a call at (888) 320-2058 and schedule your free, no obligation denial letter review.

The appeal is the most important part of your LTD claim process.
