Jun 07, 2019

In a case of first impression in the country, Lincoln Benefit established that the Dallals had fraudulently procured long-term care benefits for 12 years. The federal jury unanimously awarded $619,290.49 in fraud damages and $300,000 in punitive damages.  The jury also found Mr. Dallal did not qualify for policy benefits on any policy grounds and rejected the Dallals’ statute of limitations defense.
