A life insurer ceased paying partial disability benefits to a doctor on the basis of a medical opinion which suggested that the doctor was capable of returning to full-time work. This issue was strongly contested. After the doctor issued proceedings, we undertook extensive investigations (involving subpoenas, surveillance, etc) which revealed that the doctor had commenced running a home practice on a full-time basis. This enabled the life insurer to settle the claim for a nominal sum.
