Sedgwick Wrongfully Terminates STD Benefits for Newark Client with Anxiety

Dabdoub Law Firm Secures STD Benefits for NJ Client with Anxiety

After Sedgwick wrongfully denied her the short-term disability (STD) benefits she deserves, a New Jersey woman struggling with severe anxiety turned to our disability insurance attorneys for assistance. Keep reading to learn more about this recent success story in Newark, NJ.

Dabdoub Attorney Successfully Appeals to Sedgwick on Behalf of Newark Client

In August 2023, Dabdoub Law Firm successfully appealed on behalf of our NJ client, instating the STD benefits she deserved from the start. Seasoned Dabdoub lawyer Geannina A. Burgos wasted no time providing Sedgwick with a wealth of medical evidence to support her client's disability, including multiple paper-based reviews from numerous physicians.

“Dr. Carness notes that despite modifying her medications, no medication treatments have yet made a significant impact on [my client’s] gastrointestinal syndrome and she continues to be hospitalized frequently,” Attorney Burgos informed the insurer in her appeal. “It is [her] hope that Sedgwick will objectively look at the medical evidence before it and come to the only reasonable conclusion—that she is totally disabled and that benefits be paid retroactively.”

Fortunately, Attorney Burgos enlightened Sedgwick to the error of their ways, equipping our Newark client with the disability benefits she needs to live a full quality of life.
