We represent a nurse from Manhassett with Lupus and back problems. We originally persuaded Prudential to reverse its decision that the claimant was able to work as a nurse after we filed an action in federal court. However, relatively soon thereafter, Prudential challenged whether the claimant was unable to perform any other occupation.
At the time of the lawsuit, even though the claimant only needed to establish that she was incapable of working as a nurse, we went out of our way to demonstrate how the medical and vocational evidence submitted supported her being incapable of performing any full time occupation. We provided Prudential with information from the claimant’s doctors showing that there had been no change in her medical tests, clinical examination findings, or symptoms.
Prudential notified the claimant today that it determined she is unable to be gainfully employed. If we had not exceeded the evidentiary requirements initially, it is unlikely that Prudential would have concluded that the claimant was disabled from any occupation.
Please take note of how important it is to retain an attorney who specializes in disability claims, if you intend on filing for disability. Our office offers free phone consultations. We have offices located on Long Island, in both Nassau and Suffolk counties.Previous Next
