Dabdoub Law Firm Secures Disability Benefits for Veteran in Lexington, KY
In August 2022, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully secured short-term disability (“STD”) benefits from The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America for our client in Lexington, Kentucky.
Our client served in the U.S. Navy and was stationed on the USS Archerfish. After serving for some time, he began work in his new role as an electric system control operator. During his employment, our client developed a circadian rhythm sleep disorder (shift work type) that disrupts his sleep.
The diagnosis worsened our client’s mental and physical health by exacerbating his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety symptoms. Despite this, our Lexington client powered through these negative health effects for the sake of providing for his family.
It wasn’t until our client suffered a debilitating panic attack that he recognized a pressing need to focus on his health. His panic attack, which occurred in June 2022, was so acute that it led to our client’s hospitalization, as his wife rushed him to the emergency room where he required sedation to recuperate from the frightening episode.
The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America Approves STD Benefits for Lexington Veteran
Our client’s experience at the E.R. led him and his wife to decide that it was in his best interests to step back from his occupation and instead dedicate his time, care, and attention to caring for his health.
Consequently, our Lexington client turned to the experienced disability attorneys at Dabdoub Law Firm to assist him with filing a short-term disability claim. Our firm successfully secured the initiation of short-term disability benefits on his behalf, giving our client the deserved opportunity to manage and treat various health issues that abruptly and severely disrupted his capacity to work and overall quality of life.
