This was a shocking denial by The Standard. Our client, a technical support representative for the state of Oregon was denied long term disability after undergoing two hip, two knee and three back surgeries. After paying benefits for 1.5 years, The Standard relied on a hired-gun doctor to review our client’s medical records and determine that she can work 40 hours a week.

In this video, long term disability lawyers Gregory Dell and Cesar Gavidia discuss how we were able to get the benefit denial reversed.

  • It’s borderline fraudulent for a doctor to review an MRI report and state that there is no evidence of radiculopathy
  • What was our strategy to win this Standard long term disability appeal?
