The Standard Terminates LTD Benefits for Baltimore Client with Ankylosing Spondylitis

Dabdoub Law Firm Secures LTD Benefits for Baltimore Client

In August 2022, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully secured long-term disability (LTD) benefits for our client in Baltimore, MD after his claim was wrongfully denied by The Standard Life Insurance Company. Read on to learn more about his success story.

Our Disability Attorneys Appealed to The Standard on Our Client’s Behalf

In addition to his long history of battling numerous chronic conditions, our Baltimore client also suffered two work injuries, ultimately forcing him to leave the career he loved. He had no choice but to leave his position at the National Railway Labor Conference after 8 years of dedication and hard work, choosing to file a claim for long-term disability benefits with The Standard after his conditions continued to worsen.

Our Maryland client has been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), an inflammatory disease that not only causes extreme neck and back pain, but can result in vertebrae fusing together. He also suffers from iritis, a form of eye inflammation that causes eye pain, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, and cataracts. Sadly, his condition reached the point of no return after two work accidents that resulted in a serious head injury and severe nerve damage to his thumb.

After undergoing multiple surgeries with minimal improvement, our client still suffers from impaired vision and little to no left-hand use. His primary care physician of over 30 years explicitly stated that his conditions have only regressed over time, contributing to already-extensive evidence that The Standard turned a blind eye to when they decided to wrongfully deny our client the long-term disability benefits he’s rightfully entitled to.

Fortunately, our experienced disability insurance lawyers successfully appealed to the insurance company on our client’s behalf, securing the disability benefits he needs to live a fuller quality of life.
