“A man worked as a pipefitter and welder in New Jersey. He suffered from severe back pain due to a workplace injury. MRI’s showed disc bulging and pressure on his spinal cord in his lumbar spine. As a result of his pain, he could not work. His insurer, Cigna initially approved his claim for long-term disability benefits but the claim was later denied. In their denial, Cigna asserted that the medical information available did not support ongoing disability.
Unsure of what to do, he reached out to Fields Disability. His attorney at Fields Disability reviewed theinsurance company’s file and developed a plan to fight the denial. He updated medical records and requested reports from the client’s treating doctors. With the updated records and reports, he then drafted a winning appeal. The insurance company reversed their decision and reinstated the client’s monthly benefits and paid all the past-due benefits. The client was incredibly relieved to know that his source of income had been restored.”
