Disability Insurance Legal Services

Edward O. Comitz, Esq. heads the firm’s professional disability insurance practice, which focuses on ensuring collection of legitimate disability claims filed on behalf of¬†professionals who have purchased individual policies.¬†We represent medical, dental, legal and business professionals, as well as professional athletes and entertainers, in complex coverage disputes with their disability insurance carriers.

The challenges inherent in submitting a disability insurance claim for payment are surprisingly difficult to tackle alone, against a billion dollar industry with its own team of professionals aimed at saving money by denying or terminating disability claims. Because disability insurers regularly employ numerous and varied tactics to deny or terminate disability benefits, our relationships with clients typically cover every aspect of the process from legitimate risk management, documenting the claim, ensuring coverage, and, as necessary, litigation and appeals.
