“The insurance company denied a probation officer her long-term disability after she became unable to work with her clients due to her mental health. The disabled worker retained our firm to represent her in appealing the insurance company’s denial. The insurer relied on the opinion of a doctor who had never seen our client and who discounted and erroneously ignored valid neuropsychological testing that demonstrated our client’s inability to work. The denial did not even consider how her mental limitations affected her ability to do her job.
Our long term disability lawyers prepared an appeal for our client, which demonstrated the validity of the neuropsychological testing and obtained a letter from our client’s treating doctors to support her disability. In the end, the insurance company reversed its denial of benefits and our client received back pay as well as ongoing monthly benefits.”
