Disabled Doctor Wins Fight Against Unum Life
On June 11, 2010, Salient News reported on a disabled doctor who prevailed against Unum in court to receive disability insurance benefits to which he was entitled. The attorney for the doctor discussed the tactics used by the insurance company:
Unum has shown a long-standing pattern of denying occupation specific policies focusing on denying high earning professionals such as doctors, lawyers, chiropractors and the like. Unum uses its own appeal process to unjustly prejudice and deny valid and deserving claims.
