Liberty Mutual Resumes Payment to Nurse with Lower Back Pain and Rheumatoid Arthritis

Cooper, Bender & Bender P.C. convinced Liberty Mutual to overturn its decision to cut off benefits to a nurse who was experiencing disabling pain due to rheumatoid arthritis and multiple failed back surgeries. 

Cooper, Bender & Bender P.C. prepared a comprehensive appeal that cast doubt on the opinions of Liberty Mutual’s physician as well as their vocational consultant. Their physician had not reviewed all of our client’s records before stating that she was not disabled and that his opinion contradicted itself. Further, we determined that their vocational consultant did not appear to have reviewed our client’s job description before saying she was able to work and also misunderstood the definition of disability. 

After receipt of our appeal, Liberty Mutual overturned its initial denial and resumed payment to our client.
