Records showed that on February 4, 2009, the claimant who worked as a computer programmer/analyst complained of neck and lower back pains and filed a claim for disability benefits. He was paid benefits for 261 days based on the doctor’s diagnosis of neck sprain/strain and panic attacks.
However, under the department medical guidelines, he is expected to recover within 28 days. As a result, he was referred to two doctors for further diagnosis. The claimant had to undergo both psychiatric and orthopedic examinations on September and October, 2009 respectively.
The two examinations concluded that the claimant was able to perform his regular work as of the date of the examinations although the claimant disputed it as his doctor held a contradictory opinion and evidence which establishes that the claimant is still unable to work.
Thus on November 12, 2009, the claimant filed an appeal.
Represented by experienced disability lawyers of the Mesriani Law Group, the claimant sought an appeal and the decision was reversed. Through the effective and timely representation of Mesriani Law Group lawyers, the claimant was able to receive his much-deserved benefits.
Mesriani Law Group has again secured benefits for a claimant and allowed another client his full recovery.
