DISCLAIMER: The results are specific to the facts and legal circumstances of each of the clients’ cases and should not be used to form an expectation that the same results could be obtained for other clients in similar matters without reference to the specific factual and legal circumstances of each client’s case.

PAST WORK:  stock broker

INJURIES:  2 strokes within 2 years of each other

SUMMARY:  Claimant alleged disability beginning in March of 2011 after a pair of strokes significantly reduced his ability to perform his job in the high stress world of the financial industry. The claimant initially suffered a stroke in 2009, but attempted to return to his job shortly thereafter. It was immediately apparent that the claimant was not able to return to the high level of work he was performing due to cognitive deficits, extreme fatigue and severe anxiety of suffering another stroke. Unfortunately, in March of 2011, the claimant suffered an almost fatal stroke that prevented him from performing in any kind of work.


HEARING LEVEL RESULT: FULLY FAVORABLE decision dating back to claimant’s alleged onset date, or the date of his second stroke.
