This was a long-term disability case in which my client had been forced to stop working due to the consequences of having a large tumor removed from their brain. This person had suffered neurocognitive deficits as a consequence, often forgetting things and being more emotionally susceptible. Though my client had received benefits since 2006, the insurance company never stopped trying to get rid of them. Their benefits were terminated years ago, and they overcame that hurdle. In January 2016, their benefits were terminated again. They turned to us. The insurer denied benefits this time because: they claimed my client stopped taking their meds; they claimed my client was neurologically fine, and; they claimed my client’s problems were related to an eye condition.

My client was still taking their medicines; they had just changed to an online pharmacy. An understandable error by the insurer. Their claim that my client was fine neurologically was fictitious. Absolutely fake. We know this because there had been 8 previous neuropsychological examinations. All unanimously agreed our client was disabled for life. One mentioned a possible eye problem, but that was summarily disproved. In short, the insurance company denied benefits without any supporting evidence. It created tremendous stress in their life for 10 months while we got the situation sorted.

Before the deadline even came up, the insurer reinstated benefits, no additional questions asked. They were handily defeated. My client was very fortunate to have the unanimous support of their family and husband, all of whom helped to put together hundreds of pages of supporting documents for their appeal. Our client is on track to receive more than $1,406,000 in benefits while she remains disabled.
