“A 60 year old gentleman, who worked as the IT director for a large, international business, suffered a traumatic brain injury. With an occupation requires one to think, reason, analyze and articulate significant and highly complex concepts, this client could no longer perform any of these functions. Neurocognitive tests were done and demonstrated clearly that this client suffered from cognitive impairment. Despite the findings, the disability carrier denied an application for disability benefits.
