The Basics & Benefits of Disability Insurance
When a person purchases an individual disability insurance policy straight from an insurance company, the law will most likely help experienced attorneys protect the rights of the clients, in most cases. In addition, the majority of individual disability insurance cases can be fought over in court, by using state laws that will favor the client with the policy, over the insurance company, or at least provide equal opportunities for both parties involved. If the insurance company was to mess up anything, a handful of states will allow for the person who’s wrongfully denied to then sue for bad faith and punitive damages, in addition to just the benefits. Individual insurance cases can be extremely complicated, and are not like common lawsuits.

Most disability insurance companies will try to argue that a policy falls under ERISA law, because it’s much better for the insurance company. When ERISA does apply though, the disability insurance companies are aware that attorneys don’t even know how to best handle an ERISA case. Disability insurance companies count on getting away with the denials of many claims, and therefore save money by settling cases cheap and winning cases. They do this because too many people do not hire experienced disability insurance attorneys, early on in the process. The Tennessee Disability Insurance team at Eric Buchanan & Associates is made up of attorneys, paralegals, and other areas of staff that continuously help disabled people from many different parts of the country to fight wrongful denials of disability insurance benefits.

A top notch Tennessee Disability Insurance attorney should have the knowledge of disability insurance companies, why and how they deny claims, what procedures disability insurance companies are following, and all of the questions they don’t want a disabled person to ask.

Disabled people get lots of empty promises from disability insurance companies. In the disability insurance world, promises are made and then broken shortly after.
