UnumProvident Claim Denial Lawsuits Aren't Only Problem for Disabled
By John Curran
As Top Class Actions has noted, UnumProvident and other disability insurance providers are not profitable when they have to pay for too many claims, which is why disability insurance claim denial lawsuit attorneys often have their hands full. Some companies have mathematicians that don’t accurately gauge risk, and they are willing to let claims denial specialists use allegedly unfair tactics to keep Unum lawsuit Plaintiffs from the benefits that they deserve.
Unfortunately, those who are considering UnumProvident disability claim denial lawsuits aren’t alone with problems from similar providers and even employers. In fact, a teacher in Peoria, Illinois, has filed a disability lawsuit against the school district where she worked. Like other insurance claim denial lawsuits, she argues that the school failed to accommodate her post-traumatic stress disorder.
Many organizations are ill-equipped to deal with mental disorders and there is still stigma behind them, which means that sometimes the only redress is for Unum disability insurance claim denial lawsuit lawyers to bring suit. While the lawsuit isn’t about insurance for the Illinois teacher, the situation is similar. Eymarde Lawler not only witnessed two gunshot victims, but was later assaulted by a student. After she took paid medical leave, she was forced back into the same classroom.
Like many disability insurance claim denial lawsuit Plaintiffs, her employer did not respond to her request for a transfer. The school is fighting the claim vigorously, of course. It is unfortunate that this is continuing to be an issue even beyond UnumProvident disability claim denial lawsuits. It may take more publicity of the risks and effects of mental illness before claim denial processes and the Americans with Disability Act to be updated.
