“A Nurse’s assistant from Oregon had a minor twinge in both knees. Then, within two weeks, the pain flared up to a severe level. The nurse’s job required her to help lift and move patients, and be on her feet all day. Her condition forced her to stop working. Her insurance company granted long-term disability benefits and paid her for about four months. Then suddenly they sent her a letter stating that she could return to work so the benefits were denied. She appealed to the insurance company to no avail.
Worried about her lost income, she called Fields Disability for help. The attorneys at Fields began collecting medical records from multiple doctors and physical therapists to prepare for a final appeal. With the evidence strengthened, Fields attorneys sent a strong appeal to the insurer explaining that our client could no longer work as a Nurse’s Assistant. The insurance company agreed and our client received a lump-sum check for back pay, and monthly benefits through the end of the policy period. ”
