For more than three decades, our client worked as a trusted appellate law attorney in and around Coral Gables, Florida, her hometown. After being diagnosed with chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue in 2018, she found herself at a point where she could no longer continue working in her practice, which she loved dearly. She turned to Dabdoub Law Firm and our long term disability benefit attorneys for help filing her LTD claim with UNUM. We are thankful this particular case did not become overly complicated by the insurer’s efforts, and the benefits she needs were secured without much interruption.
Details of the Appellate Lawyer LTD Case
Our client had an impressive track record as an appellate lawyer with more than 33 years of legal experience behind her. She loved her job and the work she did for her client. However, chronic pain and exhaustion slowed her down to the point where trying to focus at all on her work became unbearable.
She was prescribed numerous medications and supplements to try to stave off and alleviate her symptoms. Unfortunately, the medications were only partially effective. At any given time, she could still experience a significant and debilitating flare up of symptoms.
To make the situation particularly painful for her, the comorbid medical conditions could interact with and trigger one another. There would be times when a migraine would begin, spiking her fibromyalgia symptoms. As the fibromyalgia symptoms persisted and worsened, another migraine would begin due to the stress and the strain, starting a seemingly endless cycle.
Perhaps needless to say, she simply could not continue her gainful work as an appellate attorney when the slightest amount of bookwork or computer work could trigger a severe flare up. Attorney Edward Dabdoub reached out to UNUM on her behalf in pursuit of her required disability benefits. Without much complication, the insurer responded positively, and our client may now direct her attention on her own health and wellbeing.
