Dabdoub Law Firm Secures Lincoln LTD Benefits for Former Sales Manager
Last May, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully appealed to Lincoln National Life Insurance Company on behalf of our Georgia client. By the time Lincoln denied his disability claim in Fall 2022, our client had been out of work for almost a year, his chronic pain leaving him with no choice but to step back from his successful career as a Liberty Mutual Branch Manager and apply for long-term disability (LTD) benefits through his insurer.

Dabdoub Attorney Successfully Appeals to Lincoln on Behalf of Atlanta Client
Attorney Geannina Burgos, one of our seasoned Dabdoub disability lawyers, reached out to Lincoln on her Atlanta client’s behalf to right this wrong, informing the insurer in her appeal, “[My client] had a thriving career for nearly two decades, most recently as a Sales Manager/Senior Branch Manager.”
She adds that he had to step away due to numerous debilitating conditions—including generalized anxiety disorder, ADD, chronic neck pain, chronic migraine headaches, PTSD, and unspecified neurocognitive disorder caused by a traumatic brain injury (TBI)—after a visual migraine episode in the workplace triggered a series of health issues.
Lincoln’s Denial of Benefits Was Wrong & Unreasonable
Our client’s physician attests that although his patient’s migraines have “waxed and waned” over the years, he has demonstrated “frequent exacerbations” of 4-5 episodes each week. During these episodes, our Georgia client finds himself debilitated by insomnia, sensitivity to light, and countless other stressors that make it difficult to work and drive, let alone lead a functional quality of life independently.
Also contributing to the wealth of medical evidence was the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). “The Department of Veteran Affairs has acknowledged [my client’s] diagnoses and their symptoms and determined that he is 100% disabled,” Attorney Burgos concludes firmly, adding that she looks forward to a timely and favorable decision.
In this case, Lincoln delivered, at long last approving our Georgia client for the long-term disability benefits he rightfully deserved from the start.
