Hartford Reinstates Client Suffering From Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Friday, February 4th, 2011

We are thrilled that Hartford has decided to overturn its decision to terminate our client’s long term disability insurance claim, reversing that decision and reinstating her long term disability insurance benefits. Our client suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and other conditions, which impacted upon her ability to work as a Speech Pathologist.

In order to succeed with our ERISA appeal, we needed to develop the support of our client’s treating medical providers. These providers offered their support for our client’s medical impairments, and articulated how and why she was unable to work in her occupation. Our appeal aggressively attacked the underlying basis of the claim determination, demonstrating to Hartford that the decision was an abuse of discretion.

Our 111 page appeal included an attack of Hartford’s medical review, the development of claim support through personal statements, vocational analysis, medical support and legal argument. This formula for success was thankfully persuasive enough to permit Hartford to see the error of their ways and reinstate our delighted client.
