UNUM Approves Disability Benefits for Mental Illness & Drug Addiction Client
Some cases are far more complex than the average, but Dabdoub Law Firm still does not back down. Our disability insurance claims attorneys recently had the chance to represent a man who suffered from severe mental illness, which gave him a proclivity to dangerous drug addiction. He was unable to even get into direct contact with our team when we filed for disability benefits with UNUM, as he was staying within a drug rehabilitation facility at the time. All the same, we were successful in convincing UNUM that he was deserving and very much in need of benefits.
Details of the Mental Illness & Drug Addiction Case
Our client has a long history of severe mental illness that can be attributed to several nonfatal overdoses and suicidal tendencies. He struggles each day to stay focused, and it has become virtually impossible for him to participate in any type of employment until his mental illnesses are addressed and alleviated.
According to our client’s doctor, he is unable to:
- Perform material and substantial job duties
Side effects of his mental illness and drug addiction include:
- Panic attacks
- Constant anxiety
- Extreme sleep deprivation
- Mood swings and irritability
Dabdoub Law Firm was contacted to help this man seek disability benefits as direly needed. However, the fact that he was admitted to a drug treatment center that prohibited him from leaving for 30 days, our disability benefits lawyers were unable to make direct contact with him while we were preparing his disability claim filing.
Undeterred, we used the notes graciously provided by his doctor to create a convincing claim and argument on his behalf, urging UNUM to see the gravity of the situation and help a man in need. We are happy to announce that UNUM agreed to initiate disability benefits that will help our client find his footing.
