Long Term Disability Insurance Companies

Despite the vastness of disability insurance companies and those who are employed by them, the community involved is pretty small.  Jason Newfield is well known by his adversaries at long-term disability insurance companies, including their own in-house attorneys, outside counsel, medical experts,  and the claims adjusters who handle disability claims – and disability denials. 

After more than two decades of representing claimants at all stages of the disability claims process, he has a reputation as a highly-skilled and professional attorney who combines deep knowledge of the law with a tenacious approach to protecting his clients.  His presentation of his clients’ claims has been often recognized by insurance companies as helping to facilitate the claim process.

The following contains information about the insurance companies we have helped clients succeed with claims, and fought against, and some and insights into their unique strategies in pushing back on claims.  Many of the companies employ similar strategies, including surveillance, social media searches, examinations with biased doctors, paper only medical reviews and claimant interviews, but some rely more heavily on certain tools and techniques.

If you have any questions, please call us at (877) 406-7883 to learn how we can help.
