Lincoln Approves LTD Benefits for Atlanta Branch Manager with PTSD

Dabdoub Law Firm Secures Lincoln LTD Benefits for Georgia Client with PTSD

In May 2023, our disability insurance attorneys successfully appealed to Lincoln National Life Insurance Company on behalf of our client in Atlanta. After Lincoln wrongfully denied him long-term disability (LTD) benefits in September 2022, he turned to Dabdoub Law Firm for assistance. Keep reading to learn more about this recent success story in Georgia.

Dabdoub Attorneys Successfully Appeal to Lincoln on Behalf of Atlanta Client

For almost two decades, our Georgia client thrived in his career as a Senior Branch Manager at Liberty Mutual. Sadly, a constellation of severe physical and mental health conditions forced him to walk away from the work he greatly enjoyed for many years.

Since then, he has been diagnosed with PTSD, generalized anxiety disorder, attention deficit disorder, chronic neck pain, chronic migraines, and unspecified neurocognitive disorder due to traumatic brain injury (TBI). Fortunately, Dabdoub lawyer Geannina Burgos appealed to Lincoln on her client's behalf.

Lincoln’s Termination of LTD Benefits Was Unlawful

Attorney Burgos swiftly put Lincoln’s false claims to bed by pointing to the wealth of medical evidence against them—including objective diagnostic testing revealing multi-level stenosis, office notes from our client's treating neurologist, and psychiatric notes from his treating psychiatrist, adding that such strong evidence not only corroborates her client's mental illnesses, but the severity of his physical conditions as well.

“[His] diagnoses prohibit him from returning to the workforce in his own or any occupation,” Attorney Burgos concluded in her appeal. “Indeed, the Department of Veteran Affairs has acknowledged his diagnoses and their symptoms and determined that he is 100% disabled.”

Thankfully, our determined Dabdoub attorneys enlightened Lincoln to the injustice of their ways, successfully obtaining the LTD benefits our Atlanta client needs and deserves.
