Kantor & KantorLink to more items from this source
July 15, 2021

"[T]he court concluded that Unum 'attache[d] far too much significance to Plaintiff's prior success in coping with her limitations, and unrealistically minimizes the impact of her worsening condition.' Finally, the court gave weight to the fact that plaintiff's Social Security disability claim was approved, even though Unum had not considered the approval because the approval was received after Unum had denied plaintiff's claim." [Dwyer v. Unum Life Ins. Co. of America, No. 19-4751 (E.D. Pa. Jul. 8, 2021)]
