“An assistant manager from Iowa had back and hip pain. Her job in a retail store required constant walking, bending, and lifting, so she was forced to stop working. She initially received long-term disability benefits, but after a few months she was sent a letter explaining that benefits would stop because she no longer met their definition of “disabled.”
Upset at her sudden loss of income, she called Fields Disability for help appealing the insurer’s decision. The attorneys at Fields Disability contacted our client’s doctors to compile reports of all of her symptoms and treatments. The insurance company hired their own “independent” doctor to review the case, and denied the appeal.
Our attorneys filed a lawsuit against the insruance company in federal court to fight for our client. During preparation for trial, Fields Disability attorneys were able to negotiate a generous lump-sum settlement for our client. She was overjoyed with the resolution of her case.”
