Network Engineer Beats Metlife

| Aug 13, 2015 | Firm News


Suffering from chronic back and leg pain brought on by both fibromyalgia and Paget’s Disease, Verizon Communications employee Kathleen Boxell found herself unable to continue her work as a network engineer. Required to sit for almost 95% of her day left her with excruciating pain that caused her to have to leave the profession she loved. After initially being awarded short-term disability benefits, Boxell was surprised when MetLife made the decision to deny her long-term benefits, contradicting their own findings that her diagnosis of fibromyalgia was enough to disable her allowing her to attain those benefits. Fighting for Boxell’s rightful claim to long-term benefits, ERISA Law Center was able to persuade the court to force a plan administrator for MetLife to reassess Boxell’s appeal of their denial.
