Possible Reasons Why Your Claim was Denied

There are many reasons as to why your Guardian disability claim was delayed or denied. In some cases, there may be valid reasons for a claim denial. But in other cases, a denial may be wrongful and/or biased. Some of the most common reasons for a Guardian claim denial could include:

  • Guardian hired a physician or doctor to review your medical records. The hired doctor produces a report saying that the claimant is not disabled.
  • Guardian chose the doctors for your IME or functional capacity exam (FCE) to evaluate your restrictions and limitations in the workforce.
  • Guardian hired a private investigator to follow you around and videotape you. The Guardian then uses this surveillance to show that you can get back to work.
  • The definition of your disability changes from “own occupation” to “any occupation.” The Guardian hires a vocation expert to evaluate your ability to work.

In these examples, Guardian holds most of the control as they evaluate your disability and your ability to work. An experienced and competent attorney can provide you with the necessary legal representation at every stage of the claims process, from properly and completely filing the initial claim to appeal a denial to representing your interests in courts with a lawsuit.

If your policy is under a group plan or an employer-sponsored plan, your rights are protected by ERISA. However, this also means that there are specific deadlines to file an appeal or to file a lawsuit after an ERISA appeal denial. For this reason, it is essential to contact a disability insurance attorney as soon as possible.
