Good Morning America Reports on CIGNA Disability Insurance Claim Denials

Wednesday, July 2, 2008

                          Good Morning America continues to report on the horrors that claimants experience fighting long term disability insurance companies throughout the country.  The video in this report is a must see for all members of Congress, and should at least give other disabled claimants comfort in knowing they are not alone.  Despite the positive Supreme Court  ERISA ruling in Glenn v. MetLife last week, Congress still needs to address both the delays and the harassment claimants must go through to get the disability benefits they deserve. The two breast cancer cases where the claimants were denied benefits are both heartbreaking and maddening.  A young […]

Thursday, June 19, 2008

    The decision all ERISA long term disability attorneys around the country have been waiting for, Metropolitan Life Insurance v. Glenn, 554 U.S. ____ (2008) , finally came down from the U.S. Supreme Court this morning .  Click here for the full decision. The issues in MetLife v Glenn were whether MetLife, as a plan administrator,  had a "conflict of interest"  by being both the decision-maker and payer of claims, and if a conflict existed, what "standard of judicial review" should be used by the courts when a beneficiary appeals a denial of ERISA long term disability benefits. The Court held: Often […]

Nassau County Workers Compensation Lawyer: Newsday Reports on Permanent Partial Disability Lump Sum Settlements

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

There are literally thousands of former Nassau County workers who are currently receiving lifetime workers’ compensation payments (pensions) for life due to on- the- job injuries.  I know – I have represented a large number of these unfortunate individuals.  These payments are overwhelmingly for workers who have been classified as having "permanent partial disabilities" and are destined to live the rest of their life in pain. According to a Newsday article yesterday, Nassau County is now proposing a $55 million taxpayer funded bond to "sell" these claims to private insurers who would then try to convince the injured worker to settle […]

Friday, February 8, 2008

The  New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) is right around the corner from our Wall Street office.  Last July, a very successful Commodity Broker called our office for legal representation in his appeal of a denial of his ERISA long term disability claim against The Guardian Insurance Company.  His long term disability policy was supposed to pay him $10,000.00 per month. He been out of work for 14 months prior to coming to our office and The Guardian, like most LTD insurance companies, was dragging their feet.  After the client retained our office, we quickly realized that the "stated" reason for The Guardian denial was based on a incorrect […]

CBS News Special Report on Social Security Disability Claim Backlog

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Last night the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric unveiled the first of two special reports on the Social Security Disability claim backlog.  My friend and fellow Social Security Disability lawyer, John Hogan, was interviewed and spoke of the 2 1/2 year wait for a hearing in the Atlanta area!  When you see the disabled claimant’s profiled in this report, you will realize how cruel and unacceptable such waits are.  I suppose that we should be thankful that the hearing wait in the New York metropolitan region is only 18 months!???  But it is hard to feel this way when you see clients […]

New York Times Reports on Social Security Disability Claim Crisis

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

Yesterday’s front cover of the NY Times had an article detailing the long delays in the Social Security Disability claim process.  Much of the backlog is the result of Congress failing to adequately fund a Social Security disability claim system which is now facing more claims due to the aging of the "baby boomer" generation.  Today, a rash of editorials skewering both President Bush and Congress for this preventable crisis hit the streets and the far reaches of the Internet.  Something must be done – now!  Last week, I traveled to New Haven, Connecticut to handle a Social Security disability […]
