Dabdoub Law Firm Secures LTD Benefits for Washington D.C. Attorney with PTSD
In May 2023, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully reached out to UNUM on behalf of our client in Washington D.C. to secure the long-term disability (LTD) benefits she deserves. Keep reading to learn more about this recent success story in the U.S. Capitol.
Dabdoub Attorney Secures UNUM Benefits for Client with PTSD
After graduating from one of the nation's most prestigious law schools, our client forged a successful and fast-paced career, thriving under the pressure of her role as an attorney in a highly complex legal practice area. Sadly, the pressures of her taxing career would ultimately catch up with her, causing her to stop working back in February due to debilitating PTSD symptoms and chronic fatigue.
Fortunately, Attorney Kevin Schaefer of Dabdoub Law Firm reached out to our client’s disability insurance company on her behalf, providing UNUM with extensive medical evidence and corresponding documentation to support her need for long-term disability benefits.
“Despite the pressures of her role, [my client] loved her job and looked forward to a bright and successful future,” Attorney Schaefer explains. “However, the progression of post-traumatic stress disorder robbed [her] of her future. [Her] functional limitations are further complicated by chronic fatigue syndrome.”
Our client sees numerous specialists to help manage her condition, receiving treatment from her psychiatrist, rheumatologist, and therapist in hopes of improving her health. Clinical notes from her treating psychiatrist confirm that our Washington D.C. client struggles with suicidal ideation and self-harm, issues exacerbated by her demanding occupation in law.
“The simple fact is [she] is no longer able to perform in her very demanding job as a young attorney,” Attorney Schaefer explains. “She worked tirelessly to graduate from a top law school and join a prestigious law firm, only to have her future derailed by the progression of debilitating medical conditions.”
Luckily, Attorney Schaefer and our other Dabdoub disability insurance lawyers successfully secured LTD benefits for our Washington D.C. client, equipping her with the financial support she deserves to rest, recover, and prioritize her health during this difficult time.
