ERISA / Long Term Disability Claim Lawyer ConferenceSunday, March 19, 2006
With all the talk of workers’ compensation reform in New York lately, some of you may have thought that we forgot about the long term disability and social security disability claim side of our practice. Anything but!
On February 23th and 24th, I attended ACI���s Litigating Long Term Disability Claims conference in Coconut Grove, Florida. This is one of the best LTD claim lawyer conferences in the nation and all the “heavy hitter” plaintiff and defense attorneys in the in LTD business, from Frank Darras to Mark DeBofsky, were there. In fact, both Frank and Mark gave wonderful presentations regarding recent case law and claim filing strategies.
Given that a long term disability insurance carrier last week denied a new client who has end-stage real disease and is awaiting a kidney transplant, it looks like the good fight will continue for the foreseeable future.
