Due to our client’s serious medical conditions, the Life Insurance Company of North America (CIGNA LINA) acknowledged his disability and granted him long-term disability benefits. Then, one (1) year before our client was set to retire, CIGNA LINA terminated his benefits. Our client was already diagnosed with coronary artery disease, amenia, chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, pulmonary disease, and liver lesions. By the time CIGNA LINA terminated his benefits, his conditions had not improved. Rather, our client had been diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma – or liver cancer.
Our Client’s Symptoms Did Not Disappear
Our client’s doctors confirm that he is “permanently disabled.” He suffers from pain and tenderness, swelling, and extreme fatigue – symptoms that have only gotten worse over time. While 1 year of benefits may not seem significant to CIGNA LINA, our client uses his long-term disability benefits to pay his bills while he waits for retirement to kick in. Our client is also entitled to this money because he is totally disabled under the terms of his policy.
Using Medical Records to Recover Disability Benefits
To help remedy the situation, Dabdoub Law Firm provided CIGNA LINA with another copy of our client’s medical records and a doctor’s certification of his disability. Given the circumstances, we knew CIGNA LINA would comply to avoid litigation.
Fortunately, our client received the long-term disability benefits he deserved.
