    Signing a document confirming you have been fully compensated certainly won't help your cause in trying to negotiate with your health insurer. It is not fatal, but it won't help. If you can persuade the liability insurer to strike that language, do so. Going a step further, we routinely ask the insurer to agree to language stipulating that "this settlement reflects the compromise of a doubtful and disputed claim. It is stipulated and agreed that the releasor has not been fully compensated...

    Your STD and LTD claims are governed by a federal law called ERISA. ERISA is a very unique and challenging legal environment, but lawyers who specialize in ERISA disability claims can really help level the playing field. I strongly urge you get an opinion from one before making any further decisions. Feel free to contact me privately for a referral to a competent ERISA lawyer in your region.

    As noted by others, this appears to be a clear violation of a federal law called ERISA, which covers employee benefit plans. The employer has a "fiduciary duty" to pay the premiums to the insurer in order to keep the coverage in force, By violating these duties, the employer itself can become liable for any medical bills incurred by you or your fellow employees. I definitely recommend contacting an ERISA attorney in Tennessee. I know of two highly competent ERISA attorneys, one and...

    This is a classic scenario with MetLife. We have handled dozens of cases like yours. The time to consult an attorney is immediately after you received the decision terminating benefits. You have 180 days within to present proof in support of your claim (called the "administrative appeal"), and the quality of your "appeal" is the most important determinant to the outcome of your claim. This is where an experienced ERISA disability attorney can best influence the outcome.

    This could get complicated in a hurry. Certainly someone like you who is sick enough to be out on LTD doesn't want to lose health insurance. You need an attorney who is experienced in ERISA, which is the federal law governing employee benefits. Feel free to contact me if you would like an initial free consultation.

    Highly doubtful that they can interfere with your insurance proceeds. In my experience the insurance company simply pays the benefits to the named beneficiary, even if someone else is making a claim. That is the point of having a beneficiary designation in the first place. You probably don't need to worry too much about this unless and until you receive a letter from a lawyer representing the family or a lawsuit. At that point you would need counsel experienced in probate and insurance matters.

    I agree with the previous poster. You probably have a good claim, and will only need an attorney if your neighbor's insurer gives you the runaround.

    Homeowner's insurance claims in Georgia are complicated, You would do well to consult an attorney with experience specific to this area. Although I handle insurance claims, I generally steer clear of homeowner's claims. If you would like to contact me I can refer you to attorneys who I know to be expert in this area.

    First, I am sorry for the loss of your husband. Georgia law relating to disclosures in life insurance applications is very complicated. One of the key questions is whether the policy is outside Georgia;s two year "incontestability" period. You will definitely need to consult an attorney experienced in life insurance matters. If you have not already found someone, feel free to contact me, as I have handled several matters arising from similar facts. One word important word of caution: if...

  10. How can a vehicle that has been restored be worth less than you paid for it?

    The outcome of this claim may have as much to do with the language of the policy as it does with the actual value of the vehicle. Proving the value of the restored car could be approached a number of ways, and it sounds like you are already on the right track for documenting the condition of the restoration. It might also be useful to finding sales history on "comparables," meaning a similarly restored vehicles. A completely separate concern is how the insurance policy itself defines the...
