Dabdoub Law Firm Helps Florida Trial Attorney with Stage IV Breast Cancer Recover Disability Benefits from UNUM
Our client worked as a trial attorney in Lighthouse Point, Florida before – and even after – she was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2016, our client was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer and underwent aggressive treatment, including a double mastectomy. Just when she thought life would go back to normal, the breast cancer returned with a vengeance. In 2020, our client was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer.
Our Client Could Not Work with Daily Chemotherapy
Despite being able to work through treatment during her first diagnosis, our client was unable to sustain her practice during treatment for Stage IV breast cancer. She started working from home to protect her health, but with daily chemotherapy and the associated side effects, our client could no longer meet the intense demands of her occupation and her clients.
Instead of trying to work through nausea, vomiting, headaches, and severe fatigue, our client acknowledged that she was unable to work and turned to her UNUM disability policy for peace of mind.
A Claim UNUM Could Not Refuse
When initiating her long-term disability claim, our client contacted Dabdoub Law Firm. We explained her situation to UNUM and provided the insurance company with evidence of her disability, including statements from her employer and attending physician, as well as her medical records.
With such a thorough application, UNUM promptly reviewed and approved our client’s long-term disability benefits.
We are proud to have handled this claim for our client as she prepares for one of the most important challenges of her life.
