In June 2023, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully secured long-term disability (LTD) benefits for our client with ADHD, fibromyalgia, and Raynaud’s disease after The Hartford wrongfully denied her claim. Keep reading to learn more about this recent success in Columbus, Ohio.
Dabdoub Attorney Successfully Appeals to The Hartford for Columbus Client
A registered nurse in Columbus, Ohio turned to the Dabdoub Law Firm for assistance after her disability insurer wrongfully denied her claim for LTD benefits, despite a wealth of medical evidence to contradict this decision. Fortunately, Attorney Kevin Probst of Dabdoub Law Firm successfully appealed to The Hartford on our Columbus client’s behalf, kindly reminding the disability insurer of their legal obligations under ERISA law.
“Given the strong evidence in favor of ongoing disability, Hartford should promptly change its adverse determination, approve [my client’s] LTD claim, and pay retroactive benefits without further delay,” Attorney Probst informed the insurer, adding that the clinical and objective evidence—“consistently confirmed” by our client’s providers—overwhelmingly proves her eligibility for long-term disability benefits under her policy.
According to one of her treating specialists, the Ohio nurse “demonstrated marked impairments with all tested physical domains.” The sheer volume of her health conditions is overwhelming, as her diagnoses include insomnia, ADHD, Raynaud’s disease, fibromyalgia, depression, memory loss, insulin resistance, adrenal insufficiency, osteopenia, chronic pain, cervical spinal stenosis, dizziness, degenerative disc disease, hearing impairments, hypoglycemia, generalized anxiety disorder, hypothyroidism, and mixed connective tissue disorders.
Even so, The Hartford did not take these factors into account before proceeding to wrongfully deny our client’s LTD claim. “[My client] lacks the capacity to perform the material duties of her occupation as a registered nurse or any occupation,” Attorney Probst stresses. “Significant objective and clinical evidence proves that [she] remains unable to perform the material duties of her own or any occupation. If the evidence is fairly and honestly reviewed, there can be only one conclusion: [My client] met and continues to meet the definition of disability, and is therefore eligible to receive her LTD benefits.”
Fortunately, our disability insurance lawyers successfully appealed to The Hartford on behalf of our Ohio client, equipping her with the financial aid she needs to live the fullest quality of life possible.
