CIGNA Reverses Denial of Disability Claim
August 08, 2014
GTT&C partner Frank Cordell has a 15-year history of successful representation of professionals in disputes under long-term disability (“LTD”) policies. He recently represented a former insurance broker who developed a debilitating condition known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. The LTD insurer, CIGNA, denied the claim and argued that the client was not totally disabled within the meaning of the policy. Frank handled the appeal of the denial, which was conducted before an in-house panel within the insurer. In July 2014, CIGNA reversed the denial and granted full LTD benefits.
