We recently filed suit against Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Company for denying our client’s claim for Long Term Disability benefits.
Our client was a salesman working for a chemical company. He suffered from intractable pain, and applied for and received short term disability benefits. He then received long term disability benefits for 24 months. Then, suddenly, his disability benefits were terminated based on Hartford’s finding that even though he was disabled from his own occupation, he was not disabled from all occupations.
Contrary to Hartford’s opinion, the medical evidence supports the fact that our client is unable to work at any occupation.
