Mass Mutual Approves Long Term Disability Benefits For an Oncologist That Suffered Stroke
Our client was a well respected, dedicated Oncologist who had managed his own medical practice for many years. In an area of medicine where there is more heartbreak than not, where the steady guidance of a doctor helps navigate patient and family alike through the battle with life threatening cancer, our client stood out. It was his life’s passion to wage a battle against cancer, and he never envisioned the day when he would be forced to walk away from his fight. Unfortunately, following a stroke he was left with difficulties with his speech that included not only his ability to properly convey information but also extended to problems with accurately comprehending information given to him by his patients and their caregivers. In a profession where accuracy and efficiency are paramount, our client felt that if he continued to practice Oncology it would be a disservice to his patients.
Application for Disability Benefits With Mass Mutual
Realizing that the effects of the Stroke on his ability to convey and understand information would make it difficult for him to properly convey information to his insurance carrier, he contacted Dell Disability Lawyers and spoke with Attorney Stephen Jessup. Attorney Jessup reviewed his Mass Mutual disability policy so he could understand the terms and conditions of the policy and properly advise him as to his rights under same.
In preparing the application, Attorney Jessup preemptively gathered our client’s monthly financial documents, production reports, tax returns and other documents he knew Mass Mutual would require as part of their review of the claim for benefits. Medical records were gathered, reviewed, and follow up with our client’s treatment providers was conducted to further document our client’s restrictions and limitations as it related to his practice of Oncology. When all of the information was collected, reviewed and documented in the initial application, Attorney Jessup submitted an application packet to Mass Mutual.
The Application Review
Mass Mutual has a good reputation for acting in the best interest of its insured. That being said, they are very thorough in their review and require that the claim is supported by medical information as well as financial information. Additional requests for information were made by Mass Mutual, and understanding that this would be the case Attorney Jessup had already compiled and analyzed the information being requested and was able to provide to Mass Mutual expeditiously. This in turn helped to speed the claims review process. Within two months of submitting the application package, Attorney Jessup was able to happily advise our client that his claim for benefits had been approved. Although our client wishes he was still pursuing his life’s passion, he now at least has the peace of mind that he is receiving his monthly benefits under his long term disability policy.

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.
