Berkshire and Liberty Mutual approve benefits to OB/GYN suffering from essential tremor
Our client, an OB/GYN purchased long term disability insurance policies from Berkshire and Liberty Mutual in hopes that he would never need to file a disability claim. He began experiencing a slight tremor in his left hand in 2006. At that time he sought treatment to determine the origin of the tremor and his options for treatment. It was initially determined that the tremor was minimal and was not impacting his ability to practice as an OB/GYN.
For about a year and a half the tremor appeared to be controlled by medication. In May of 2008, he began to notice the tremor in his left hand was worsening and a new tremor was developing in his right hand. Concerned he scheduled follow up medical appointments and sought out another physician for his treatment. New, more aggressive medication was prescribed in an attempt to alleviate the symptoms. With these changes in medication he was able to continue to work as an OB/GYN.
By the middle of 2009, the tremors began to worsen and his doctors adjusted his medications again. By November 2009, the tremors had become severe enough that he was having difficulty holding surgical instruments and was forced, for the safety of his patients, to reduce the number of surgeries and office procedures he was performing. By December of 2009, his physicians had deemed him permanently disabled from performing his duties as an OB/GYN. Not wanting to give up the practice of medicine he sought additional opinions. However, all the doctors he consulted with agreed that the tremors were uncontrollable and that he could no longer work as an OB/GYN. Exhausting all medication possibilities, he had no other option but to consider filing for disability benefits.
Realizing that the disability income benefits would be his only source of income, he contacted Dell Disability Lawyers to assist in the filing of his claim for benefits, to ensure the proper presentation of his claim. Attorneys Gregory M. Dell and Stephen F. Jessup worked on his claim, gathering and analyzing information they knew would be needed by the insurance companies in order to establish his claim for benefits. Attorneys Dell and Jessup maintained constant communication with the claims managers at Berkshire and Liberty Mutual, responding promptly to all requests for information or clarification. Within a month and a half of the filing of our client’s claim for benefits, Berkshire began issuing benefits.

Reviews from Our Clients
Very satisfied with the work of this team. Took well care of my case and took all the necessary time to be responsive and attentive when I had questions. Guided me through recovery and returning to normalcy. All thanks to Jason & Tabitha, thank you!
I’m extremely satisfied with the experience I have had with this firm from day one. The lawyer who has handled my case, Alex, is very efficient and attentive to all my questions and concerns. They are always aware of how my case has gone and they care about my health. I feel optimistic with them because they are very attentive during the process of my claim. I would not hesitate to recommend families and friends if in any situation they need their services. Kathleen as well has been very well and assisted me with this case. I highly appreciate everything they have done for me.
It’s unfortunate when disability insurance companies come after older disabled policyholders just to help their bottom line. It can be a living nightmare the damage they can do to a family. Dell Disability Lawyers are polite, understanding and knowledgeable. They call you back and answer any question you have no matter how unimportant it can be. The amount of stress they took off of myself and family was incalculable. I recommend them highly to take care of any disability case whether it be filing for benefits or reversing a claim decision. They are outstanding.
I could not have been happier or more appreciative of the hard work they performed on my behalf. I was well briefed on my case and it was closed in a timely manner with a financially successful resolution.
Mr. Symonds and Sonia as well as everyone else we have worked with throughout this process have been very helpful, professional and caring to our situation. We are very thankful to have this great team on our side.
Without them my LTD company was dropping my plan with me still suffering from my accident, even with doctor’s statements I’m still disabled. The LTD company didn’t want to advance my policy to the next stage of years of pay. Dell Disability Lawyers saved my policy, and helped to enforce the LTD company’s own policy (for its policy holder, me) that I would be covered still under the LTD policy I had paid for at my previous job, when my accident occurred. These lawyers know what they are doing and can help you too. LTD companies will try to drop you when you still need coverage just because they don’t want to pay on your policy anymore. Don’t let them break contract with ya because they are trying to get out of it. Hit em with legal action to ensure the continuation of your policy you paid for. Dell Disability worked very well for me and continue to do so.
I was denied long term disability benefits from The Hartford after being on it for years. I found Dell Disability Lawyers after doing research online. In a matter of days they responded and explained to me everything that would be done. Dell Disability Lawyers were able to settle my suit against The Hartford very quickly and responded to me quickly. I would definitely recommend this team of lawyers for anyone that is fighting for their disability insurance.
I have had nothing but a great experience with Dell Disability Law Firm. Mr. Alex Palamara and his team went above and beyond my expectations. They will respond to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Thank you once again for taking my case.
This law firm is the best so far. MetLife denied me two times, they appealed two times for me and they won of course. So if you are on disability and want a chance at winning your case use this firm Dell disability lawyers, kind courteous understanding and they get the job done. You won’t be disappointed.
