Critical illness policy and ill health pension claims

We are expert solicitors in critical illness insurance policy claims and ill health pension claims

Claim Now

Insurers are quick to take your premiums, but very reluctant to pay out when you make a claim.

If you feel that your critical illness compensation claim is being wrongly denied, why not let us try to right the wrong for you?

Building on our experience acting for chronic pain and critical illness victims, we have dealt with many insurers and our experience is second to none.

Sometimes, you will have one of the conditions mentioned in the critical illness policy, such as cancer, stroke or a serious heart condition. However, solicitors will find a reason for not paying out.

On other occasions, you do not have any of the mentioned conditions but you are seriously unwell. These policies will contain cover for “total permanent disability”. That could well cover your condition.

44 year old nursery nurse LB from Basingstoke developed the chronic widespread pain condition fibromyalgia and it stopped her working. LB was not fit enough to return to work and she was dismissed on ill health grounds two years after the accident.

LB had a critical illness insurance policy entitling her to a lump sum if she became permanently unable to work in her own occupation as a nursery nurse. Her insurers rejected her claim, she continued to pursue it, but to no avail.

I recently received a letter from an Oncology Engineer who was off as a result of a number of illnesses. My answer to him elaborates on the sort of support you can expect from your employer when suffering from critical illness:

  • Highly recommend this firm for their expertise in fibromyalgia. I am eternally grateful for all the hard work and care taken in supporting me during one of the most challenging periods of my life. Thank you.

  • I would absolutely recommend Brian Barr Solicitors. They looked after me after the previous solicitor’s would not listen as my health was taking a rapid turn downward because of fibromyalgia issues. Brian Barr’s diligence meant I had a suitable conclusion for the nature of my car accident.

  • Steven, I want to say how very much grateful I am to you, and Mr Brian Barr, and all staff at Brian Barr solicitors, and everyone who has helped me find justice, without you all I don’t know where I would be, you are all truly amazing people because you care about others, keep doing what you are doing because it means the world to have a team of people who care, thank you all so very much, and for keeping me going throughout all of this. Thank you Steven so very, much.

  • Alex Cohen and his team were nothing but amazing. They fully explained everything I needed to know throughout my entire case (which was just over 5 years!) with a great deal of compassion and care. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brian Barr solicitors if a member of my family or friend ever needed it.
