“A registered nurse from Louisiana started having uncontrollable drowsiness. He was consistently getting seven hours of sleep but the symptoms persisted. He tried reducing his hours and various medications but nothing helped. He was forced to stop working. He applied for short term disability benefits through his employer but was denied because, despite strong records from his neurologist, the insurance company said he did not have a specific test performed.
Upset and worried about his lost income, he called Fields Disability for help. Our attorneys gathered the claim file from the insurance company and medical records from our client’s doctors. Fields attorneys asked one of our client’s doctors for a summary of their findings and the doctor provided a letter saying the narcolepsy was lifelong and disabling. With strong supporting evidence, Fields attorneys filed an appeal to the insurer and the decision was overturned. Our client received a lump sum for short-term benefits and is now working with Fields Attorneys on a long-term disability claim. He is pleased with the professional advocacy Fields Disability continues to provide.”
