“A Texas customer service representative began feeling short of breath. His doctor diagnosed him with congestive heart failure, and recommended limiting his activity. He stopped working due to his disability. The insurance company initially approved him for long-term disability benefits, but after nearly two years, they sent a letter saying that he no longer fit their definition of “disabled.”

Frustrated at the decision from his insurer, he contacted Fields Disability to determine his next steps. The attorneys at Fields Disability contacted our client’s doctors and compiled a strong summary of treatment and symptoms. The appeal was unsuccessful but our attorneys filed a lawsuit in federal court to fight for our client’s benefits. During preparation for trial, Fields Disability attorneys were able to negotiate a generous lump-sum settlement for our client’s remaining benefits. ”
