Our Insurance Claims Attorneys Secure Justice for Clients

In the event of a severe injury, it is a sad truth that the hardships often do not end after the medical emergency is resolved. Injuries can leave people with disabilities, both short-term and long-term, which limit their ability to earn. Disability insurance is a way to make sure that your needs are provided for if you suffer a disability.

One of the largest providers of disability insurance in the U.S. is Lincoln National Corporation (LNC). They offer disability insurance to groups and employers. Like many insurance providers, their benefits are geared towards helping policy-holders get back to work. For example, benefits may include rehabilitation or same-day benefits.

A Brief History of Lincoln National Corporation

Lincoln National began in Indiana in 1905. To project an image of integrity and security, they adopted the name "Lincoln" to associate with the famously honest president. A month later, Abraham Lincoln's son approved the use of the name and likeness of his father. Until 2008, Lincoln National Corp. funded the nation's largest, most comprehensive museum devoted to Abraham Lincoln.

For the first 50 years of its history, the corporation grew quickly, achieving $250 million in assets by the end of the 1930s. They continued to grow until the financial crisis in 2008. Throughout the first decade of the 21st century, Lincoln National restructured itself, selling its investment management service to focus on insurance. It also merged with Jefferson Pilot Financial, when it renamed itself the Lincoln Financial Network.

Call Arnold & Itkin When You Do Not Receive Your Disability Benefits

People often trust that their insurance policy will provide for them in their time of need. However, sometimes when applying for insurance or filing a claim, an underwriter may alter or add conditions to your policy to “manage risk.”

These conditions may include:

  • Adding exclusions
  • Reducing the benefit amount
  • Limiting the time period of benefits

However, insurance companies must “act in good faith.” This means they must honor their agreement with you unless there is legitimate reason not to. To that end, insurance companies may not delay payment without reason, reduce payment, or withhold it. If you have any reason to believe that Lincoln National Corp. has not treated you with good faith, you can have experienced insurance claim lawyers fighting for you.
