Countless courts across the country have painted Unum as a biased claims administrator concerning disability claims in which the insurance giant decides claims and insures claims. It is not simply name-calling.
This classic conflict of interest was determined by the United States Supreme Court to be significant in battles by disabled individuals against Unum under long-term disability insurance policies. Because of this conflict, federal courts are supposed to scrutinize the actions of the ruthless insurer when it comes to assessing how the company decided and ultimately terminated a claim.
In Unum’s case, because the company has been on the receiving end of various bad faith verdicts in the millions of dollars, there is also a documented history of unfair tactics its employees perpetrated against disabled human beings.
