When Is an Appeal Not an Appeal?

In Reindl v. Hartford Life and Accident Insurance Co., __F.Supp.2d___(E.D. Mo. 2012) attached hereto, an appeal was deemed untimely because a law firm had written the insurance company and stated that it intended to appeal but did not in fact formally appeal within the required time.  Although a law firm committed the error in this instance an important lesson for those claimants seeking to appeal on their own can be learned – there are many pitfalls that the wary and unsuspecting may fall into when attempting the appeal process on their own.
