SMDA OBTAINS CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT FOR LONG TERM DISABILITY INSURANCE CLIENT WITH MENIERE'S DISEASE

Our client went off work due to the progression of her Meniere’s disease.

She went back to work part-time and struggled to work five-hour days. She was scheduled to return to work full-time in November but was unable to do so due to her medical condition. She did gradually increase her hours but was never able to return to full-time work. She became completely unable to work the following March due to her Meniere's disease and migraines.

When the LTD insurance company denied her appeal SMDA filed suit. During a court ordered facilitation a confidential settlement was reached.

One of the ancillary benefits of this confidential result is that the client has the peace of mind that this LTD insurer is out of her life for good. She will never have to complete another form or wonder if that vehicle parked on the end of her street is some Magnum PI wanna be hoping to catch her doing something that the LTD insurer will use to terminate her benefits.
