  • Video Surveillance

    UNUM

    UNUM conducted video surveillance of our client in an effort to prove he was not disabled, and he was able to work. However, they took video of the wrong person. We were able to prove they did not get video surveillance of our client, but of someone else. Our client was totally disabled and UNUM reinstated the benefits.

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    Hartford

    We filed an appeal against The Hartford because they misapplied a bonus she received a year and a half after our client received it. WE argued that the case law is clear saying an insurance company can wait to apply something they know will disqualify a person from continuing receiving benefits. Because they waited a year and a half, the waived their right to apply the bonus to the earnings. Our client’s benefits were reinstated.

  • Stroke

    Metlife

    Our client suffered a stroke but continued to work for about five years before leaving the job and filing for disability insurance benefits from MetLife. MetLife relied on their doctors’ opinions that our client could work but did not provide a reasonable explanation as to why. We argued that it is against ERISA law to not provide a reasonable explanation as to why they believed he could continue working. The denial was reversed and our client was awarded the benefits he is entitled to.

    CIGNA LINA

    Our client was being treated for hepatitis C to a point where it was no longer detectable in the body.

We provided medical evidence in support of our argument. LINA reversed the termination and our client was able to receive the benefits he deserves.

  • Leg Injury

    Northwestern Mutual

    We represented an emergency room physician who suffered from a disabling leg injury. She had an own occupation disability plan with Northwestern Mutual. Northwestern misapplied the definition of total disability under the plan when they terminated her benefits claiming she could perform duties of her job that did not require her to stand. We argued that the definition of total disability in the policy meant she cannot do the important duties of her occupation, namely moving around the ER as a physician. Northwestern reinstated her benefits based on our appeal.
