“Todd” was a sales trader at a major investment bank. Todd suffered severe cognitive deficits as a result of Lyme Disease. Todd continued to work as long as he could despite the deficits, but was forced to go out on disability when he made several incorrect trades that cost his employer thousands of dollars. The insurance company denied Todd’s claim, asserting that he submitted insufficient objective evidence of disability.
Todd was referred to Riemer & Associates by a prominent employment attorney. The Firm prepared a comprehensive appeal, including neuropsychological testing and an abnormal brain SPECT scan. The Firm also included a compelling video statement from Todd which clearly showed how Lyme Disease has dramatically affected his cognitive abilities and speech patterns.
The insurance company reversed itself, paid Todd all past benefits owed, and placed Todd on long term disability benefits. Riemer & Associates continues to work with Todd to ensure that his benefits are not interrupted.
