We were able to recover disability insurance benefits from The Standard Insurance Company on our client’s behalf after complications from a decades-old wrist injury prevented him from working. Our client worked for many years as a skilled otolaryngologist, or head and neck surgeon, in Scottsdale, AZ. With his complications, however, he could not work, and his disability insurance policy became his sole source of income.
Details of the Otolaryngologist Case
Unlike some of our other victories, this case was relatively straightforward. We made a claim on our client’s behalf, which lead The Standard Insurance Company to pay benefits in a timely manner. The claim was inspired by a 12-year old bicycle injury, in which our client fractured his left wrist.
At the time, our client had surgery and completed post-operative physical therapy. For many years, he was able to work with patients, but in late 2018, and early 2019, hand pain, discomfort, and fatigue made it impossible for our client to complete his job safely. Our client sought pain injections and advanced medical care, but nothing ceased the progression of his symptoms. On August 14, 2019, our client was forced to stop practicing.
How Dabdoub Law Firm Helped
Our client purchased disability insurance to protect his income in the event of an accident or illness. Dabdoub Law Firm simply helped him recover the benefits he paid for. We wrote a letter to The Standard Insurance Company and provided our client’s insurance adjuster with a CD of documents. We were happy to alleviate the surgeon’s anxiety and see a favorable resolution.
