Reliance Standard Disability Denial Attorneys

Was your Reliance Standard Disability claim denied?  We are ready to hear your case!

The disability insurance denial attorneys at Gianelli & Morris are familiar with Reliance Standard and other large insurance providers just like them.  When an injury or illness renders you unable to work, you should be able to rely on your employer-provided or separately purchased disability insurance to cover your medical costs and lost income.  That is, after all, the whole purpose of disability insurance.

Unfortunately, providers like Reliance Standard are always looking for any reason to deny a claim or limit a payout to protect their bottom line.  If you are disabled and Reliance Standard or another California disability insurance provider has denied your long-term disability (LTD) or short-term disability (STD) claims, the knowledgeable disability denial team at Gianelli & Morris is here for you.  We pride ourselves on holding even the largest insurance providers to task for their conduct, and we will not stop fighting until you get the coverage you are owed. 

Reliance Standard and a History of Wrongful Denials

Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company is a leading provider of insurance products in the United States.  They specialize in employee benefits including disability income and group term life insurance as well as additional voluntary coverage packages.  Reliance has been in existence in some form since as far back as 1817, having gone through numerous corporate makeovers in the subsequent 200 years.

Reliance Standard has a demonstrable history of wrongfully denying disability claims.  Just a few years ago, Reliance Standard took a disability denial all the way to the United States Supreme Court just to avoid paying attorney fees after losing at trial.  Thanks to the case titled Hardt v. Reliance Standard Life Ins. Co., 560 U.S. 242 (2010), parties who succeed in certain disability lawsuits have an easier time recovering attorney fees from insurance providers who wrongfully deny claims.  Every year Reliance Standard finds itself in court facing allegations of inappropriate denials.  Whether you prevail in your claims against Reliance Standard depends on whether you have the right legal team in your corner fighting on your behalf.
