“A man from Kansas suffered from severe diabetic neuropathy. Despite working a sedentary occupation where he was seated most of the time, he was unable to continue to work due to the chronic pain from his neuropathy as well as the inability to use his hands. His long-term disability insurer, Liberty Mutual, denied his benefits claiming that he had the functional capacity to perform his own occupation.
Not knowing what he was supposed to do, he found the attorneys at Fields Disability. His attorney at Fields reviewed all of the records the insurance company had and requested updated records to provide to the insurer. He also obtained a report from the client’s neurologist which highlighted that the client could not work. On appeal, the insurance company reversed their decision and reinstated the payment of monthly benefits. The client felt an incredible sense of relief knowing that he had an income on which to support himself and his family. ”
