Frankel & Newfield Overcome Termination for Successful New York Dentist

Our client, a successful New York dentist, was on claim for a number of years with Trustmark Insurance, due to severe orthopedic issues, which did not permit him to safely and effectively practice his profession.

His claim had originated with Continental Casualty Company, and then had been taken over for claim purposes by Trustmark insurance, a common occurrence. Trustmark Insurance administers a number of insurers and has purchased “blocks” of business of several insurers.

This is about a Social Security Disability claim.

In this matter, after many years of being on claim, Trustmark sought to investigate the claim as to whether our client had undergone the appropriate care and treatment for his orthopedic conditions. This is not an unusual practice for Trustmark, or other disability insurance companies.

His care was sporadic, as there were limited non-surgical options for him. It should be noted that Trustmark Insurance had previously accepted liability of this claim for a long period of time, following an examination that it required our client to undergo. This examination determined that our client was disabled, and unlikely to improve and would never able to return to full time work.

Many years later, trying to review this claim solely for purposes of harassment, Trustmark once again investigated the claim, hiring a doctor to conduct a paper-only review records, with no in-person medical examination.
