Attorney Elliott Andalman Wins Disability Appeal for Client with Multiple Sclerosis
This client retained our services to appeal termination from Long Term Disability (LTD) benefits. Basis of disability is Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The LTD carrier terminated benefits based on a single office visit note from treating neurologist indicating that the client had an excellent exam. It required several supplemental statements from the neurologist, submission of MRI film, a vocational expert report, statements from client and spouse, an IME (Insurance Medical Exam), and legal briefs to finally obtain reinstatement with payment of retroactive benefits. We also assisted client in winning SSD benefits on initial application.
