NORTHRIDGE, Calif., June 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Presented online on August 3, 2021 at 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (Pacific), Kantor & Kantor, LLP and Workwell Foundation will offer a Continuing Legal Education session: COVID-19 and Disability Insurance for Individuals Living with ME/CFS.
This session will inform and educate attorneys and other professionals about the latest scientific connections and legal trends and analysis of COVID-19 and the Long Term Disability insurance claim, appeal, and litigation process.
The goal of this session is to arm attorneys with as much information and insights as possible so that they can advise their clients effectively.
"As we learn more and more about the symptoms that are shared by people living with COVID-19 and ME/CFS, the more we are certain insurance companies will deny LTD claims," says Associate Andrew Kantor. "This is why we think attorneys may want to be as educated as possible, so their clients get the insurance benefits they deserve."
Attendees will learn
- The connections between COVID-19 and myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS)
- How investigative tools such as Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) are a vital part of long term disability claims, appeals, and litigation
- What attorneys and their clients can expect when they submit Long Term Disability (LTD) claims that are related to COVID-19
- A brief introduction of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA)
- An outline of the Long Term Disability claims, appeals, and litigation process in the areas of ERISA and insurance bad faith
