Denied: What To Do When The
Insurance Company Denies
Your Disability Claim.
Mia Wright was a successful employment recruiter and loving mother of two young boys. At 37-years-old, she was vibrant and in perfect health. Being a single mother had its challenges, but Mia was grateful to be divorced from her abusive ex-husband and to have a fresh start in life.
Mia was up for an impressive promotion at work. It was right after a promising meeting with her boss that Mia’s life took an unfortunate turn. She had just left the office and was walking through the company parking lot toward her car when she was attacked.
The attacker assaulted Mia so violently that she was unconscious when a colleague found her and called 911. Her injuries were so severe that she could not recognize herself in the mirror. The person she had been able to recognize, however, was her attacker. It was her ex-husband.
Mia pressed charges against her ex-husband. She was released from the hospital and her physical injuries eventually healed. Unfortunately, no matter how hard she tried to put the assault behind her, she couldn’t. At night, she had recurring nightmares and during the day, she experienced debilitating flashbacks. The anxiety was so incapacitating that she had to take sick leave from work. Her employer encouraged Mia to apply for short-term disability benefits. Mia prepared a claim with her psychiatrist’s help and it was approved.continued on page 2
