Dabdoub Law Firm has been able to secure long term disability insurance benefits from Aetna for a Celebration, Florida man who is living with incurable arthritis. The medical condition is most prominent in his feet, but it also afflicts his knees and hands. At first, Aetna did not want to approve his LTD benefits, only approving short term disability benefits. Even as his conditions worsened and persisted, the offer for LTD benefits was not given. Thanks to the work of our attorneys, though, he was recently approved to receive total disability benefits.
Details of the Chronic Arthritis Case
Our client suffers from both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis in his hands, knees, and feet. The pain caused by the condition makes it incredibly painful for him to stand for even moderate stretches of time, and the dexterous manipulation of his hands is also painful. According to his doctor, the arthritis in the hand and foot prevents him from work and the inability to remain standing, sitting, or walking for long periods of time also results in his disability from work. The evaluation of his disabling arthritis was continued by saying that his present condition and restriction may not allow him capable of being able to perform a full time job in any capacity affected by his present restrictions in the future.
Dabdoub Law Firm used this information to initially file for short term disability benefits from Aetna on our client’s behalf. It was our goal to get him some financial support while further medical review of his condition was concluded. However, it soon became apparent that no further prognosis would be necessary to see that his incurable conditions were only going to worsen with time.
Given the inability for anyone to make a miraculous recovery, it is logically concluded that our client will be living with the complications and disabilities associated with arthritis for the rest of his life. As such, we moved forward to request long term disability benefits be provided to our client. Perhaps in recognition of our reputation and history of case successes, Aetna did not provide much resistance to our claim, and our client was subsequently given the LTD benefits he needs and deserves.
