In his Unum lawsuit, filed June 18, 2013, Gooden claims that one of the country’s largest LTD providers “arbitrarily and capriciously denied his long term disability benefits in violation of section 502(a) of the Employment Retirement Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).…

By Robert J. Boumis
Nina Bujacich has filed a lawsuit against Tyler Technologies Short Term Disability Coverage, the company that administered her long-term disability insurance. Her lawsuit alleges that the insurance company wrongfully denied her short-term disability claim. She is seeking reinstatement of her benefits under the policy.
According to her insurance denial lawsuit, Bujacich’s initial insurance claim was first denied by her insurance provider in July 2012. She filed an appeal in September of that year, which was denied by April 2013.

Fla. Man Says Unum Wrongly Denied His Disability Insurance Claim
By Jessica Tyner
Unum is one of the largest providers of long-term disability (LTD) coverage in the United States. According to a number of policy holders, Unum preys on their customers by giving them the run around, denying benefits with no foundation, stopping or lowering payments with no communication and basically illegally making the process impossible to follow.
“I found out first hand that Unum is the second worst insurance company in the world,” notes Jacksonville, Fla. Resident named Herman who was denied his LTD coverage. “I am still in shock from their bad faith practice and so are my doctors,” he adds.
There are many other Unum claim denial stories where a policyholder’s doctors have provided supporting documentation which Unum seemingly ignores. One of Unum’s practices reportedly includes a policy to only act on information provided by their own doctors -- many of whom have never even seen the patient.…
