Our client was a successful regional vice president for a nationally known broadcasting company. She suffered from disabling dizziness that was never properly diagnosed or treated. None of the doctors could figure out what was wrong and no attorney would take her case.
When she retained our firm, the disability insurance company was skeptical, unwilling to pay, and dismissive of her serious condition. In fact, the insurance company would not even give her the proper time to file an ERISA appeal.
We immediately went to a federal court and sued, obtaining an extension of time. After the insurance company received a massive, intricate, and thorough review and analysis of the client’s situation, they immediately decided to render payments.
The client received hundreds of thousands in overdue payments and has been receiving over $10,000 per month for more than five years.
