MetLife Approval of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Claim

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, also referred to as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, are debilitating conditions characterized by feelings of extreme exhaustion, muscle and joint pain, memory problems, brain fog, and problems with concentration. Many of our clients who suffer from one or both of these conditions come to us frustrated that, despite letters and documentation from their doctor and health care professionals confirming that their condition is severe and greatly limits their ability to function at work, many insurance companies question these claims stating a lack of evidence or proof of disability. Unfortunately, the cause of these conditions remains unknown and it is often diagnosed only after physicians have run numerous tests to exclude other disorders. However, the disorder is real and for some, incapacitating.

Battle continues over man's life insurance policy

Collecting on a life insurance policy can sometimes lead to unexpected problems for bereaved Florida families. One case on the other side of the country illustrates the kind of difficulties that people can face. In Utah, a man was shot and killed by a police officer. While the police allege that the man had raised a handgun and pointed it at the officer, his family and others say that the man put down the gun and ran through a gate into his own yard.

Court reverses Prudential Insurance Company's termination of Long-Term Disability benefits

Recently the United States District Court for the District of Colorado determined an insurance provider wrongfully terminated a client's long-term disability (LTD) benefits. Paquin v. The Prudential Insurance Company of America highlights potential issues for others receiving benefits for an extended period.

Court reverses insurance company's claim denial

People in Florida who have long-term disability insurance through their employers or as standalone policies may believe that they will be protected if they are disabled and no longer able to return to their jobs. Unfortunately, some insurance companies routinely deny valid claims. In one case, a federal judge reversed a long-term disability insurance company's denial of a claim by one of its insureds.
