Fifth Circuit Rules in Favor of Life Insurance Beneficiary Based on Expert Report Insurer Failed to Disclose During Claims Process
Kantor & Kantor Link to more items from this source
June 18, 2018
"[T]he Fifth Circuit was troubled that LINA withheld an expert report that it commissioned during the claims process and violated ERISA Regulations by failing to disclose the report to the beneficiary. This fact appeared to tip the scale in favor of the beneficiary. The message to insurance companies should be loud and clear: It doesn't pay to hide the ball." [White v. Life Insurance Company of North America, No. 17-30356 (5th Cir. June 13, 2018)]
