Sometimes, people feel like they are having to fight against a faceless corporation that really doesn’t have their best interests at heart, just to recover benefits that they are entitled to under an insurance policy that they have paid years of premiums to have. These corporations have excessive amounts of money and attorneys at their disposal and can continue to deny claims for years. This is why is it is so important to get someone on your side to fight these folks. In this case, the Court found that Cigna had spent years wrongfully denying claims, and ordered them to go back through these denied claims and re-evaluate them, which could result in Cigna paying many millions of dollars to claimants.
