“A Payroll Supervisor became disabled after developing severe nerve pain all throughout her body. It affected her ability to concentrate and perform her duties throughout the day. After initially paying some disability benefits, Lincoln sent the woman a denial letter, stating she could perform desk work and other sedentary duties. Lincoln argued that the woman did not have any severe neurological symptoms that would preclude such duties. The woman was shocked, because her condition had actually been worsening over the past several months.
Fields Disability filed an appeal on tour client’s behalf. We closely examined the information that Lincoln had when it denied benefits and secured detailed reports from two of our client’s treating providers challenging that information. Lincoln reviewed the information in the appeal and determined the woman was eligible for benefits.
