Disability Insurer Repeatedly Refuses to Pay for Surgery, Breaks Settlement Agreements, and Postpones Treatment Causing Claimant Anxiety Resulting in $1.5M Verdict

In a recent $1.5M victory against Liberty Mutual Insurance, the Claimant, 54, fractured her left ring finger while working as a mammography technician, and her workers' compensation insurer covered her claim. The finger had to be surgically repaired and eventually amputated after complications. Because of the disability with her left finger, the Claimant developed epicondylitis-overuse syndrome-in her right elbow. She filed a proceeding before the Industrial Commission to obtain coverage for the elbow injury, but the proceeding was dropped after Liberty stipulated to coverage.
