UNUM Wants Stage IV a Cancer Patient to Wait for Disability Benefits -- Frankel & Newfield Cuts through the Delay to get Benefits Paid

Our client is a vascular surgeon who is unable to perform the duties of his profession due to numerous co-morbid conditions, including Hepatitis C, fatigue, diabetes, hemochromatosis, chronic and recurrent alcoholism, hyperparathyroidism, lumbosacral disc herniations, degenerative disc disease, facet arthropathy, forominal stenosis, chronic pain, depression, and anxiety.

Insurer Avoids Providing Documentation Which Would Reveal Bias of Hired Doctors

In ERISA long term disability insurance claim disputes, a fertile battleground has been found regarding the issue of the doctors repeatedly hired by insurance companies, either directly, or through various third part vendors, to review records and issue reports to support the denial or termination of a long term disability insurance claim.

Phone calls are coming from policy owners who are contacting us after they have tried and failed to appeal a termination or denial of long term disability insurance benefits. People often do not think they are permitted to engage an attorney to handle the issues, or think it is simple enough to handle on their own. Too often, these people are wrong, and failing to engage counsel for this critical timeframe of their claim becomes their undoing.
