Why should I bring a lawsuit? by Patricia Santucci

If you are denied LTD benefits, or wrongly cut off by your insurance company, bringing a lawsuit can result in an award of some or all of the outstanding LTD benefits being paid to you, plus interest and costs. A Judge can also order (or the parties can agree to) the insurance company continuing to pay your LTD into the future as long as you are entitled to receive such benefits under your policy. There is also an option for settlement on the basis of an agreed amount of money that represents a full and final payment to you for past and future benefits (“lump sum”). A free consultation with Santucci Personal Injury Law will help you identify the next steps. (51)
