On May 20, 2009, Jason Newfield, Esq., was a featured speaker at a legal conference, "Disability Claims in a Down Economy." It's a topic we've written about here and in our newsletter - and as the recession continues to take its toll, the quality of legal representation in disability insurance disputes has become even more important. Jason was a member of a distinguished panel of highly regarded lawyers in the disability insurance field, selected for his experience and knowledge in representing policyholders successfully in disability insurance matters. As a leading law firm in this area, we are proud of our professional reputation for excellence.

Frankel & Newfield's Spring Newsletter

Our Spring newsletter is in the mail and on our website. News in this issue features successful cases, including representation of a vascular surgeon, dentist and a Chief Financial Officer. All came to us at different stages of the claim process, and we were able to fight successfully to get them the long term disability benefits that were due them. The Spring issue also examines the case of the plaintiff who filed a claim for disability insurance benefits, but wasn't under a doctor's regular care. If you are disabled and cannot work, seek medical attention and make sure that you are cared for on a regular basis. Just as one doctor's visit is not enough to treat a serious illness, one doctor's visit is not enough to demonstrate a serious illness.

CDC Reports More Americans Reporting Disability - Frankel & Newfield is here to help

According to a study released on April 30 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of American adults reporting a disability took a significant leap upwards between 1999 and 2005.  As the recession continues to grind on and the baby boomer generation continues to age, expect to see more claims for long term disability insurance benefits.  And don't think for a moment that the LTD insurance companies aren't paying attention.  After all, the entire business of insurance is based on the model that while some people will file a claim, most will not.
