Principal Financial approved our client’s claim for long-term disability
benefits right away after we proved she can no longer work due to rheumatoid
arthritis. Principal Financial sent our client for a medical examination
with their IME doctor. Our law firm used medical evidence and help from
her doctors to convince Principal Financial that rheumatoid arthritis
causes chronic pain throughout her body. We argued that extensive medical
treatment, including infusions, with many medical experts had not improved
her pain and other symptoms to a point where she could continue working.
