Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed suit against the Paul Revere Life Insurance Company and the UNUM Group (“UNUM”) alleging violations of the Texas Insurance Code, the Deceptive Trade Practices Act, fraud, and breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing due to its wrongful handling of Doyle LLP Client’s disability insurance claim.
UNUM was responsible for handling Doyle LLP Client’s disability benefits that he bought privately in order to protect himself should he become disabled. He began suffering from normal pressure hydrocephalus and eventually could no longer perform his duties as a doctor. Despite medical records confirming his disability, UNUM wrongfully relied on the doctor it hired to deny Doyle LLP Client’s claim.
Doyle LLP’s Client had no choice but to hire a lawyer to attempt to require the insurance company to make payment. However, UNUM stood by its denial of benefits. As a result, Doyle LLP’s Client has suffered physical, financial and emotional damages.
Doyle LLP focuses its practice on representing disabled workers who are injured due to the wrongful conduct of workers’ compensation insurers, long term and short term disability insurers, and health insurers.
