“A 55-year-old female who, prior to the onset of her disabilities, was an extremely healthy, hardworking Billing and Eligibility Specialist until she began experiencing disabling symptoms. She applied for long-term disability benefits through her insurer, which was denied.
Upset at her sudden loss of income, she called Fields Disability for help appealing the insurance company’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 her first appeal.
Our attorneys compiled new and updated medical records and further supportive testing to substantiate her claim, but the insurance company decided to uphold their denial of benefits for a second time. The attorneys at Fields Disability immediately filed a lawsuit against the insurer 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, who was overjoyed with the resolution of her case.”
