“Thank you, Eddie and Team!”
I will, without question, always recommend the Dabdoub Law Firm to anyone needing disability experts! They have been professional, capable, and dogged in their attempts to both get me back on the claim and push for the best outcome in settlement or go to court if these things did not fulfill the claim to my satisfaction. I truly appreciate Eddie, Kevin (his more than capable JD), Sonya (Appeals Coordinator), and all the others who worked on my case! I never felt pressured into taking the settlement, and I feel like the Dabdoub Law Firm did everything they could to get me the best outcome possible.
I started working with the Dabdoub Law Firm in October of 2019. In late 2017 I had gone on disability due to chronic pain from past neck and back injuries/surgeries. I had already battled to switch from STD to LTD, appealed twice, and only succeeded when my employer intervened. Given those things, when I started seeing signs they were working up to another denial I started interviewing lawyers.
It is disheartening to fight for the coverage you assumed you had secured within your career choices. With most of the lawyers I talked to, there was a feeling they were just going to try to get to settlement and be done with it. This is NOT what you want in a lawyer because they will not push to achieve the best outcome for you individually. They will just check the boxes and try to get you to accept a lowball settlement of which they get anywhere from 25% to 45%, claim their check, and move on without another case.
**Please don’t put yourself through that disappointment and strongly consider the Dabdoub Law Firm.**
I talked and then worked directly with Edward Dabdoub and his team on my claim. What stood out to me right away was his recognizing my disability and validating my concerns. He outlined how they would work to get my denial overturned, but was realistic in explaining the possibility of going to mediation or litigation. He pointed out consistently that everything was my choice as to how we proceeded.
Once working with his team I was highly impressed with the magnitude of ways they approached my appeal and overall case. They hired a doctor and other professionals to review my medical history and the rather torturous FCE I was put through before hiring them, compiled 10+ years of medical data, had me tell my story in an affidavit, and worked directly with my doctor who the insurance company wouldn’t listen to alone. The team was diligent in sending appeals and pushing for responses in a timely manner.
He overwhelmed them with an abundance of supporting information.
Unfortunately, I suspected given the immediate denial of LTD and subsequent appeal, that my insurance company was likely set on denying my claim. They had made me feel like denial was a forgone conclusion, and I wasn’t surprised when it happened. However, true to their promise and commitment to my case, Dabdoub’s team just used that against them to show the lackluster response and overall inconsideration of my claim. We went through to mediation and would have gone to court next had they not actively helped mediate a settlement I was comfortable with.
I never felt pressured into taking the settlement, and I feel like the Dabdoub Law Firm did everything they could to get me back on claim, and when that didn’t succeed, to get me the best outcome possible.
Thank you, Eddie and Team!
