Dabdoub Law Firm Secures ReliaStar STD Benefits for Illinois Client
After ReliaStar Life Insurance Company denied his claim for short-term disability (LTD) benefits, a disabled resident of Chicago, IL turned to our experienced disability insurance attorneys for help. Keep reading to learn more about this recent success story at Dabdoub Law Firm.
Dabdoub Disability Attorneys Successfully Appeal to ReliaStar on Behalf of Chicago Sales Rep
In November 2022, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully appealed to ReliaStar on behalf of our client in Chicago. As a sales professional, this Illinois resident was forced to step back from his highly successful career after suffering a cardio-pulmonary arrest in June 2020.
His eagerness to rejoin the workforce was clearly evidenced in his attempt to return to work following his recovery—or so he thought. Unfortunately, our client was unable to recover fully enough to return to his sales career. Nonetheless, ReliaStar used this as an opportunity to deny our client the short-term disability (STD) benefits he rightfully deserves.
Attorney Emily Quirino, one of our accomplished Dabdoub disability insurance lawyers, explained in a letter to ReliaStar that her client “never actually recovered from his cardio-pulmonary arrest” three years prior, and is thus disabled. “This is evidenced not only by his medical record, but also by his inability to meet the demands of his occupation following the cardiac arrest,” Attorney Quirino adds.
Understandably, our Chicago client’s sales occupation was too demanding for him to return to in his current condition. It’s no secret that the fast-paced world of sales requires professionals to go the distance, generating enough to meet ambitious quotas—standards that are exceedingly difficult, if not impossible, for a disabled person to achieve.
“After his cardio-pulmonary arrest, [his] sales significantly dropped,” Attorney Quirino concludes. “He was not able to perform the substantial duties of his occupation. “Therefore, [my client] has been disabled since June 25, 2020.”
Fortunately, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully secured the short-term disability (STD) benefits that our Illinois client needs, empowering him to live the quality of life he rightfully deserves.
