10th Circuit Awards LTD Claimant Interest Back to Date of Claim, Not Date of Disability
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth CircuitLink to more items from this source
May 10, 2002

Excerpt: Mr. Caldwell did not file a claim with LINA until five years after his injury. This delay was due to [his employer"s] failure to inform him of the availability of disability benefits through the LINA plan, rather than any delay caused directly by LINA. To award prejudgment interest as far back as 1989, therefore, would penalize a party not responsible for the delay. [Caldwell v. Life Insurance Co. of America, No. 00-3256, 00-3288 (10th Cir. Apr. 30, 2002)]
