ERISA Long Term Disability

Our client graduated first in his class from a highly respected private law school. After practicing successfully for more than twenty years he suffered a “mild” traumatic brain injury when his car was rear-ended by a speeding car. He became unable to handle the cognitive and emotional demands of his sophisticated law practice. Standard denied the claim asserting his disability was caused by a preexisting, and previously well controlled bipolar disorder. We developed a massive body of evidence concerning the cause of disability, then filed suit in federal court. After obtaining two important favorable rulings from the judge, obtained a favorable settlement of past and future benefits.
