Florida Man Wins LTD Benefits for Bilateral Encephalomalacia After Appealing Denial from Lincoln

Many years ago, Mr. X was injured in a serious motor vehicle accident. The head injury he sustained in the collision caused a left foot drop. Caused by the compression of a nerve that controls the muscles that life the foot, having this condition meant that Mr. X, a resident of Orlando, Florida, has been challenged with motor functions that include prolonged walking, climbing ladders, and carrying heavy items.

While it seemed like the left foot drop and some difficulty with cognition and memory were the extent of Mr. X’s injuries from the accident, this wasn’t the case. In February 2022, Mr. X submitted to an MRI exam that revealed bilateral encephalomalacia.

As one of the most serious brain injuries one can endure, bilateral encephalomalacia is a disabling condition, occurring when hemorrhaging or inflammation softens and degenerates brain tissue. In many cases, patients with this condition experience motor deficits and cognitive impairment not unlike what Mr. X experiences.

Additionally, Mr. X discovered in January 2023 that he suffers from GERD and tested positive on a Cologuard test, adding to the daily challenges he already has to deal with due to his brain injury.

Appealing Denied LTD Benefits

Lincoln Life Assurance Company of Boston (Lincoln) errored in its initial denial of long-term disability benefits to Mr. X. After he reached out to us at Dabdoub Law Firm, we reviewed his claim and sought to help him reach a better outcome.

After engaging with Lincoln, we successfully convinced the company of its error in denying Mr. X his LTD benefits. It reversed its decision, and Mr. X now has the financial resources he needs to move forward.
