Federal Judge Says Disability Insurer Must Determine If Claimant Was 'Made Whole'
COLUMBUS, Ohio - An Ohio federal judge on Sept. 18 remanded a claim to a disability insurer for further fact finding on the issues of whether a disability claimant was made whole by a settlement she received following injuries sustained in a car accident and whether the disability claimant's benefits can be offset based on the settlement (Sepanta Jalali v. Unum Life Insurance Company of America, No. 16-512, S.D. Ohio, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 159015).
