Cardiac Surgeon Disability Claims
Do You Need Long-Term Disability Insurance Benefits?
While doctors and nurses of all career types face high stress environments as they fulfill crucial roles in healthcare and the wellbeing of the general populace, cardiac surgeons may encounter more stress than average. Patients who need the services and expertise of a cardiac surgeon are typically in life-or-death situations, with no exaggeration. Many cardiac surgeons become unable to perform the duties of a surgeon, but may otherwise remain capable of seeing patients in an office setting.
Dabdoub Law Firm is here to provide reliable legal support, counsel, and representation to cardiac surgeons in need of long-term disability insurance benefits. Our disability insurance lawyers and ERISA attorneys proudly take cases for people across the United States who work in all sorts of occupations and who experience all forms of disabling medical conditions. The firm has represented cardiac surgeons with total disability claims, even if the surgeon continued to practice in a clinical setting. Cardiac surgeons usually have what is known as “own occupation” disability insurance policies, which insure their ability to perform the duties of a surgeon.
We can be there for you from start to finish, including guidance for initial claim filings, settlements, lawsuits in trial courts, and appeals in federal courts. Thanks to the continual efforts of our law firm to exceed our clients’ greatest expectations, we have been able to recover millions of dollars’ worth of disability insurance benefits for our clients throughout the years.
Nationwide Legal Support for Cardiac Surgeons
If you have disability insurance provided by an employer, specialized physician’s insurance group, or a private provider, you should be able to claim disability benefits when you experience an injury or illness that stops you from performing the substantial duties of a cardiac surgeon. Serious health issues experienced by cardiac surgeons are often related closely to or encompassed entirely in mental health concerns and forms of cognitive impairment. As such, it may be difficult to definitively prove the extent of your disability, and an insurer could be tempted to deny or delay your claim.
Injuries and illnesses experienced by a cardiac surgeon may include:
- Anxiety or depression from frequent high-stress situations
- Arthritis from repeated manipulation of delicate medical tools
- Migraines or chronic headaches
- Back pain from long hours in surgery
Our Firm Knows How to Empower Your Disability Claim
Your long-term disability claim filing will likely be met with an investigation process conducted by the insurer. They are not trying to see how much disability benefits you should be granted, but rather how many they can try to deny. Our disability lawyers have gone toe-to-toe with every major insurance company in the country and left a history of incredible success stories behind us. By focusing our law firm entirely on long-term disability laws and claims, we have acquired significant experience in handling claims for total disability benefits for physicians.
