Before suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), our client was happily employed as a recording clerk for the St. John’s Board of County Commissioners in Palm Coast, Florida. Sadly, the effects of her injury left her unable to perform the material duties of her occupation.
As such, Dabdoub Law Firm filed a long-term disability (LTD) claim on her behalf. Fortunately, we were able to recover benefits from the Standard Insurance Company.
Details of the Recording Clerk’s Case
After 19 years of service with the St. John’s Board of County Commissioners, our client stopped working due to an extensive list of medical conditions and the apparent aftermath of a TBI.
Our client’s diagnoses included:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Post-concussive syndrome
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Cervical spondylosis
- Lumbar spondylolisthesis
- Major neurocognitive disorder
- White matter disease
- Memory loss
These conditions undoubtedly led to our client’s inability to work and resulted in her receiving the full allotment of short-term disability (STD) benefits allowed to her.
Dabdoub Law Firm stepped in to make the case clear to The Standard.
How We Convinced The Standard of Our Client’s Disability
Attorney Kevin Schaefer provided The Standard with extensive medical evidence and highlighted the most pertinent points. All our client’s medical providers agreed she was unable to be gainfully employed in any occupation. Together, they pointed out her severe debilitating fatigue, neurocognitive deficits, physical impairments and restrictions, and cognitive dysfunction. Some professionals noted the lasting damage associated with our client’s TBI, and an MRI of our client’s brain revealed her white matter disease.
With all this evidence in plain sight, The Standard had no choice but to approve our client’s LTD benefits. While life after a TBI is difficult, worrying about employment is one thing our client will not have to suffer.
