Unable to Work, Client Seeks Help Proving So

The Defense team and their experts vehemently maintained my client, who sustained a mild traumatic brain injury in an accident, could return to her prior job as a cook in a school cafeteria. After all, they had surveillance which showed she was capable of driving, taking her kids to school, and shopping for her family. My client tried to return to work and was adamant she could not perform her job duties. As a significant portion of my case was based on loss of earnings, I was seeking a way to prove her brain injury was the intervening factor in preventing her from working.

AdvancedRM helped me to develop my case. They secured an in-depth analysis of all of the duties required of her in her job. Pictures of the workplace and information about distractions and pace of the job were gathered.  Then, a Neuropsychologist was selected to perform an independent assessment. AdvancedRM reviewed all of the pertinent information with the physician at length and outlined specific questions to determine is my client could work at her previous job. Ultimately, because of the additional details obtained by AdvancedRM, the physician determined that while my client could function in a structured environment without distractions, she could not keep up with the pace and demands of her job at the school.  The testing clearly supported my position and I won my case. Their creative approach helped me to get the settlement my client deserved.
