Dabdoub Law Firm Helps Pharmacy Manager With Mental Health Conditions Get His Lincoln LTD Claim Approved
Despite loving and excelling at his job, a Kennewick, WA pharmacy manager was forced to quit and file for long-term disability (LTD) benefits. The man suffered from a collection of severe, comorbid conditions and reached out to Dabdoub Law Firm for help. We were able to show Lincoln Life Assurance Company of Boston how serious and disabling our client’s conditions were and recover LTD benefits on his behalf.
Details of the Pharmacy Manager’s Case
Our client enjoyed his job, but a series of diagnoses prevented him from continuing it any further. The pharmacy manager’s diagnoses included:
- Anxiety and depression
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Chronic pain syndrome
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Spondylosis (arthritis of the spine)
- Radiculopathy (a compressed nerve in the spine)
Due to these conditions, our client had already received the full allotment of short-term disability benefits. Unfortunately, his medical providers agreed he was in no shape to return to work. Doctors stated that our client could not sit for more than 2 hours per workday, was physically restricted, was incapable of performing full-time sedentary work (due to severe anxiety and pain), and that the severity of his symptoms would cause him to be off-task more than 25% of the time. Because of our client’s “disorganized” thinking and propensity toward anxiety and depression, mental health professionals decided he had “No Work Capacity.” Despite regular treatment, working at Walmart triggered our client’s anxiety and depression – continuing his career was not an option for him.
Dabdoub Clarifies “One Salient Fact”
By sharing our client’s medical records and carefully completing his claim for LTD benefits, Dabdoub Law Firm was able to recover benefits from Lincoln. Although the claims’ process tends to be long and drawn-out, we were able to simplify it by sharing what Attorney Kevin Schafer called “one salient fact.”
Our client was disabled and unable to perform the material and substantial duties of his own occupation.
We are happy to have helped him get the LTD benefits he needed and hope they afford him the opportunity to look after his physical and mental health.
