The Hartford’s History of Disability Insurance Denials

The Hartford is a financial services and insurance company that is based in Hartford, Connecticut. Founded in 1810, the Hartford has a nationwide presence offering a variety of insurance products such as life insurance, disability insurance and health insurance. These products are meant to protect you financially in the event of a medical or health crisis. If your insurance claim is denied when you need benefits most, Hawks Quindel can help.

In 2007, the Hartford was found by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals to have implemented procedural anomalies” that formed “a pattern of Hartford being overly aggressive in its attempts to reduce or eliminate” a policyholder’s disability benefits. Additionally, in that same year, California caused the Hartford to change the terms of its disability benefit policies to ensure a more fair and objective process for reviewing claims for benefits. Hawks Quindel has also obtained approvals of disability insurance claims after it has appealed the Hartford’s wrongful denials of benefits.

As demonstrated by these decisions, insurance companies such as the Hartford can be held accountable if they deny legitimate claims. Hawks Quindel is on the frontlines fighting for people’s rights.
