Dabdoub Law Firm Secures Hartford LTD Benefits for Client with Cardiovascular Disease
In April 2023, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully appealed to The Hartford to secure long-term disability (LTD) benefits for our client with cardiovascular disease. Keep reading to learn more about this recent success story in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Attorney Probst Successfully Appeals to Hartford on Client’s Behalf
After Hartford wrongfully terminated his LTD benefits claim, a Las Vegas resident turned to our seasoned disability insurance lawyers for assistance. Fortunately, Dabdoub Attorney Kevin E. Probst successfully appealed to Hartford on his client’s behalf, promptly exposing the insurer’s false claim of insufficient evidence.
“As [my client’s] insurer, Hartford has the obligation to review his LTD claim honestly and fairly,” Attorney Probst states firmly in his appeal. “When the evidence is thoroughly and fairly reviewed, there can be only one conclusion: [My client] is disabled and entitled to his LTD benefits.”
To strengthen his case, our Las Vegas client underwent a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE), which courts consider to be “the most accurate means” of assessing an individual’s functional level. As expected, the results further confirmed our client’s struggles, including impaired sitting, standing, walking tolerance, squatting, kneeling, and climbing, in addition to intolerance for sustained activity in any position.
“His treating physicians’ medical records and conclusions confirms that [my client] was, and remains, disabled and eligible for his LTD benefits,” Attorney Probst concludes. “As such, Hartford would be wrong and unreasonable to deny his claim on appeal.”
Given the extensive health conditions and symptoms our client experiences—including cardiovascular disease, dizziness, loss of balance, chronic chest and back pain, rapid heartbeat, and fatigue—Hartford clearly neglected its legal and ethical duties under ERISA law. Fortunately, our Dabdoub lawyers successfully overturned this unjust decision, equipping our client with the aid he deserves to maintain a full quality of life.
