The idea of insurance is to provide both benefits and peace of mind when the unexpected happens. When an accident, illness or serious injury happens, that person might be unable to work and contribute to the family. Disability insurance benefits are then needed to pay mortgages, bills and family living expenses.
By purchasing private disability insurance, people seek to increase their protection by insuring their income. Too often, however, their safety net is pulled out from under them when the insurance company denies their claims.
Disability benefits can be a lifeline for many clients and their families. When these benefits are denied, many fall into financial distress.
Effective Insurance Denial Representation
For more than 15 years, California lawyer Kevin Zietz has dedicated his legal practice to helping clients whose benefits were denied by an insurance company. His firm, The Law Offices of Kevin M. Zietz, is a powerful and aggressive advocate against abusive insurance company practices.
Unlike group disability policies that are covered under the federal ERISA statute, there is much more flexibility when litigating private disability policy issues. If you have been denied private disability benefits, Kevin Zietz will help you go after the insurance company to provide you the disability benefit money under your contract.
In addition, if the insurance company acted in bad faith, he can help determine whether you could recover:
- General damages (financial hardship, emotional distress, damage to credit, other difficulty or inconvenience caused by the insurance company’s conduct)
- Attorney fees
- Punitive damages
Working with an experienced Los Angeles individual disability claims attorney can make a big difference in how your claim is handled. Whether clients need assistance with the initial claim filing or are preparing to fight back with an appeal, Kevin Zietz is on their side.
