Disability (ERISA and Non-ERISA)
disability case the person must prove that the illness or injury to the
physical or mental ability of the person impairs or prevents the person
from performing his or her normal work.
for non-payment of insurance benefits are exploding as insurance
companies try to cut every penny they spend so that they can maximize
their profits by keeping as much of the premiums paid to them. The
hundreds of dollars they save by denying a disability claim becomes
millions of dollars when they deny benefits to hundreds of claimants
year after year.
firm represents disabled individuals who have been unjustly denied
disability benefits. The evidence we have uncovered suggests that the
insurance companies have implemented a nationwide policy to deny
policyholders disability benefits in an effort to save money and
increase corporate profits. Former in-house doctors that once worked
for some of these major insurance companies have testified that
corporate policy was to deny disability benefits regardless of the
condition of the insured, and that the doctors were instructed how to
do this without exposing their companies to liability if sued in a
court of law. Claims personnel have testified that certain companies
set termination goals. The verdicts and settlements we have obtained have been among the highest in Florida and the nation.
any personal injury or wrongful death case the injured person or their
personal representative must prove that the carelessness or negligence
of another party directly caused the injury or death. Negligence
occurs when a person fails to exercise the proper diligence, caution,
prudence, or concern for the well-being of others in their actions
which any reasonable person would in the same circumstances. Negligence is a subjective term and many reasonable people will disagree on what is considered negligent. This
most often requires both parties in a personal injury law suit to
employ experts to provide opinions in these matters.
Included in personal injury cases are injury claims resulting from defective products. In
a product liability case, the manufacturers and/or distributors have
failed in their responsibility to the consumer to be sure that their
product is free of defects and will not cause injury to the consumer
when used in a reasonably foreseeable manner.
