Insurance and Long Term Disability Attorney
Exclusively for the Policyholder

Watch how Bennett M. Cohen exposed Standard Insurance Company’s bad faith practices.

Insurers often engage in claims practices designed to deny claims. These practices have been carefully crafted to manufacture seemingly plausible reasons for inexcusable denials. Unethical physicians and other highly compensated “experts” help supply the insurance company with apparently tenable bases to deny claims.

You can expose and defeat the insurance company’s bad faith tactics. With the help of an experienced insurance lawyer, you are much more likely to reverse the benefits denial and recover full and fair insurance benefits.
