Most people with Parkinson’s disease first develop symptoms around age 60. Unfortunately for our San Diego, California client, her tremors began at age 44. Diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s disease and struggling with chronic migraine decisions, our client made the difficult decision to stop working as a billing manager and file for short-term disability benefits from UNUM.
Our client asked Dabdoub Law Firm for help, so she could focus on getting her medical condition under control.
Help at All Phases of the Claims Process
Because our client came to us before filing a short-term disability claim, we were able to handle everything for her. We prepared her claim for UNUM and provided the insurance company with medical records from both of her treating physicians, as well as objective medical evidence of her condition.
Our client cannot work due to chronic headaches, disrupted sleep, and tremors, cramping, and muscle problems on her right side. As her conditions worsen, it is more difficult for our client to keep up with daily life – much less fulfill the duties of her occupation.
In particular, our client cannot work as a billing manager because tremors interfere with her ability to control her right hand to type and use a computer mouse.
UNUM Approves the Claim
Dabdoub Law Firm presented all the evidence in our client’s initial claim to UNUM, so the insurance company promptly reviewed and approved her short-term disability benefits.
Our client never expected to stop working at age 44, but disability insurance is designed to cover unplanned and unexpected injuries and illnesses like hers.
We are proud to have helped her recover the benefits she needs and deserves.
