Rob’s client was a manager at a big box renovation store. The client had a large department that he had to oversee. Unfortunately, the stressful environment eventually wore the client down and he was suffering from stress and severe depression. The client’s condition was affecting his ability to function as a manager and his work performance suffered as a result. Our client went on disability. Even though our client’s change of definition didn’t occur for two years from the date of disability, the disability insurer decided to terminate our client’s disability benefits after one year. The disability insurer felt that our client could continue to work as a manager. Our client’s treating physicians were supportive of our client’s inability to work at his existing work environment and it was unclear whether he would be able to work in any occupation based on his education training and experience. Our client was going through a longer than expected period of recovery. With the assistance of reports from our client’s treating physician, especially his treating psychologist, we were able to negotiate a settlement for our client so that he would be allowed to continue with his treatments and work towards getting back to the point where he could again take on any work based on his education, training and experience.
