Frankel & Newfield Win Appeal Against Met Life

Monday, June 6th, 2016

A relatively young computer engineer had her claim terminated by Met Life after being on claim since age 31. She is unable to work due to numerous illnesses, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, recurrent sinusitis, recurrent bronchitis, fatigue, depression, anxiety, insomnia, obsessive compulsive disorder, and cognitive dysfunction. At 39, her claim was terminated.

There had been no change in her condition.

We prepared an appeal in which we demonstrated that Met Life had terminated our client’s benefits without showing that there had been any improvement in her condition.

Our appeal also showed that Met Life failed to conduct any type of vocational analysis or have a medical doctor of the appropriate specialty perform an examination or even a thorough review of our client’s medical records.

We demonstrated in the appeal why our client continues to be totally disabled and unable to perform any occupation for which she would be qualified for based upon her training, education and experience.

Our appeal was successful and today our client continues to be paid the monthly benefits that she is entitled to.
