Long Term Care Attorney in california

kantor & kantor, llp are California Insurance and Disability Attorneys

Long Term Care (LTC) Insurance has been one of the fastest-growing types of insurance sold in recent years. Over 100 insurance companies now offer LTC policies.

While the basic concept of LTC insurance is simple, getting claims paid can be extremely difficult, frustrating and time consuming. What’s more, people in need of these insurance benefits too often do not have the strength or ability to fight with their insurance company, and are often cognitively impaired. As a result, once benefits are denied, people give up and the insurance companies end up with all the premiums and no pay-out of benefits. We actually believe some insurance companies count on this being the case.

Denials usually stem from the “fine print” in the LTC policies pertaining to the conditions under which benefits are to be paid. Insurance companies will obviously interpret plan terms to advance their own interests and to deny or limit benefits. Quite often, insurance companies will engage in tactics such as denying receipt of necessary documents sent to them by the insured, utilizing biased doctors and nurses to justify denial of claims, and even ignoring, or failing to advise insureds about benefits to which they are entitled.

We Can Help

For over 20 years, our lawyers have been in the business of making sure people get the insurance benefits for which they paid. We have successfully prosecuted many long term care lawsuits, and some have resulted in multi-million dollar settlements.

At Kantor & Kantor, LLP, we have dealt with disability insurance denial for over 18 years.

We know all of the tricks an insurance company can employ in a disability insurance denial, such as:

  • Biased doctors and health care professionals who have the insurance company's best interests in mind
  • Failure to notify the insured of all available benefits in a long term disability insurance policy
  • Denials that documents were received from the insured by certain deadlines

All of the Long Term Care Cases we take are on contingency, so there is no out of pocket expense for attorneys fees. We also offer free phone, or in-office consultations.

Please email us or call us at (877) 783-8686 if you have any questions.

Client Testimonials

  • I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me.

    “I've already mentioned your firm to my family and friends and how wonderful you have been treating me. Hopefully I will not ever have the need to refer someone to you because that would mean they would be in a similar situation as myself. But, if that were to ever happen, I would absolutely refer them to your company.”

  • With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone.

    “Seemingly at the end of my rope with nowhere to turn, a friend suggested I call the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, who referred me to you. From our first contact I began to feel hope where there had been none. You took over all communication with the insurance company. You kept me posted as things progressed and advised me as to each necessary action. What a relief you were! With you in my corner, I felt enabled and no longer alone. Some big insurance companies feel emboldened to take arbitrary action against those who do not have the resources to defend what is rightfully theirs. Thank goodness for people like you who advocate for folks in need. In closing, please know how very much our association has meant. You have restored my faith in the goodness of people and renewed my confidence in the future. I am forever grateful.”

  • The arguments you made on our behalf at the mediation resulted in a more positive outcome for our case than we could have otherwise expected.

    “We appreciate that you found merit in our case, and that you were both willing and able to be present at the mediation. We believe that the arguments you made in our favor to the mediator were able to influence the outcome towards resolution that we could feel satisfied with. In the end, we believe that your counsel, your support, and the arguments you made on our behalf at the mediation resulted in a more positive outcome for our case than we could have otherwise expected. Throughout you were always professional, but direct and clearly firm on our position. We thank you for your efforts to resolve our dispute to our satisfaction, and wish you continued success.”

  • First of all, I want to express my extreme gratitude for probably saving my daughter's life.

    “First of all, I want to express my extreme gratitude for probably saving my daughter's life. By staying in treatment, the improvement is remarkable. She had been in eating disorder facilities many times, and treatment had been interrupted repeatedly by Anthem Blue Cross's denying benefits. Many of the health professionals were telling me that maybe my daughter was a hopeless case. You both gave me hope. She is still struggling with some residual issues around eating, but the change in her attitude, her ability to assess her own recovery, and her wish to live instead of to die, is evident in her life. Now she is back in school, after years of having her education disrupted by the eating disorder. She goes places with friends, and even goes out to restaurants for fun! This year marked the first holiday season for many years, when she had not been in a treatment facility. Other people gave up and you didn't. I can't thank you enough. You took the action that was necessary to keep my daughter in treatment long enough for it to work.”
