Disability Claimant Entitled To Reduced Attorney Fees, Colorado Federal Judge Says

DENVER - A disability claimant is entitled to more than $65,000 in attorney fees, a Colorado federal judge said June 10 after determining that the claimant, who prevailed in a dispute over benefits for West Nile virus, cannot collect attorney fees that were expended on independent doctors who were consulted during the administrative phase before the claimant filed suit (Michael J. Paquin v. Prudential Insurance Company of America, No. 16-02142, D. Colo., 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 96798).
