A Bay Area Insurance Law Firm That Gets Results
After receiving a substantial amount of negative media attention and facing legal action from attorneys in 47 states in the 2000s, Unum has since reformed its corporate policies. Unum offers employee benefits such as:
- Disability insurance
- Critical illness insurance
- Life insurance
- Supplemental health insurance
Providers of disability insurance deny claims by claiming that you can work even when your doctor has already said that you cannot. Companies like Unum will bring in their won experts to help them find grounds for denying coverage. The only way to fight back against this practice is to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
