Our client spent decades perfecting his practice as a pediatric anesthesiologist in Miami, FL. The last thing he wanted to do was stop working. Unfortunately, steadily progressing Meniere’s disease and related symptoms made it unsafe for our client to do his job.
As such, he decided to use his disability policy with UNUM and make a claim for disability insurance benefits. Instead of handling the claim on his own, our client called Dabdoub Law Firm for assistance. We got all the paperwork in order and explained our client’s situation to the insurance company.
Why Our Client Had to Stop Working
Our client cannot treat young patients while he is dizzy, stressed, nauseated, and tired. Additionally, his hearing loss makes it unsafe for him to work as an anesthesiologist. Although some medications help with our client’s diagnoses, which include Meniere’s disease, leg and low back pain, osteoarthritis, and vertigo, they also make him groggy.
In short, there is no way for our client to work safely as a pediatric anesthesiologist. Due to patient safety concerns, our client decided to stop working and file for disability benefits.
