(LegalLaw247.com, August 14, 2013 ) New York, NY -- Quadrino Schwartz, the nation’s leading disability insurance law firm, is celebrating yet another success story on http://www.disabilityinsurancelawyers.com with a $5 million verdict upheld in a New York appeals court.
“The judges on the panel agreed with the jury that our client was totally disabled, despite the fact that he earned $900,000 in his first year of disability, working in his office as a non-surgical orthopaedist,” said the spokesperson.
“Unum was ordered to pay nearly $3 Million in past due benefits, with interest, and will be paying our client approximately $2 Million in future benefits. This is a major win for our client,” he said.
The verdict, which was obtained for an orthopedic surgeon, joins the list of success stories for the seasoned firm. Established in1996, Quadrino Schwartz has become known for its continuous successes in obtaining settlements, winning cases, or obtaining court decisions that impact the development of long-term disability insurance law.
“No case is too complex for our dedicated team. We recently won a $4.25 million settlement for our client who had been a senior vice president for a French bank. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour, resigned from his job and filed a claim under his disability policy with a major disability insurer,” explained the spokesperson.
“The company approved the claim and paid monthly for nearly 10 years. After finding out that the client owned an internet-based collectibles trading business, the insurer terminated the claim and sued for a $3 million refund.”
Quadrino Schwartz was put on the case and unrelentingly fought against the insurer, revealing weakness after weakness in the insurer's allegations. As a result, the lawyers got the insurer's CEO to personally sign off on a settlement in which the insurer dropped its $3 million case and paid our client $4.25 million in a buyout lump-sum settlement.
“Because there are so many levels of complexity to disability insurance, many lawyers simply do not have adequate experience. For example, when a disabled claimant can still perform some work in the same field of endeavor, many insurers will try to deny the claim entirely.”
“Many lawyers wouldn’t know how to approach this. However, when we had a claim like this, our depth of experience meant we were able to convince the insurer to continue making payments,” said the spokesperson.
