When you have received a Unum disability denial in Minnesota, it is important that you have an experienced disability attorney advocating for your rights. Here is why Kemmitt, Sanford & Kramer is the right firm for you:
Unfortunately the vast majority of insurance companies only care about one thing: their profits. Every time someone who is disabled files a claim with an insurance company like Unum, there is a team working to figure out how they can deny that person the benefits that they deserve. For many Unum cases, reasons for disability denials include:
Although the law requires insurance companies to provide you with the reasoning behind their denial, Unum disability denials in particular can be extremely complex and misleading. Some have even been known to contain completely incorrect information. It is important to get an experienced legal advocate by your side who is not afraid to go up against Unum for you.
One of the most common ways to resolve a Unum denial letter is to provide them with the additional information or supporting records that they may be requesting. You may need to provide additional medical records, physician statements, letters from your family and friends, and any other evidence that can help support your need for disability benefits.
Once Unum has received your appeal, they will have no more than forty-five days to respond, but as much as ninety if they request an extension. Generally, most Unum disability denials will be resolved here without having to go to court. But your attorney will be prepared to bring your case to federal court if it means holding Unum accountable for paying you the benefits that are rightfully yours.
The last thing you need when applying for Unum disability benefits is to receive a denial. Fortunately, Unum disability denials are not the end of the road for your case. You have the right to fight back and appeal the insurance company’s decision.
