“A man from South Carolina was successfully working as an electrical engineer and making a great living. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with vestibular disease which caused serious symptoms which included chronic dizziness, balance problems, and migraines. Due to his symptoms, he was unable to perform any work, spending many days in bed. His long-term disability insurer, MetLife, denied his claim stating that the medical evidence did not support that he was disabled from his occupation.
No longer able to work and not knowing what he was supposed to do, he found the attorneys at Fields Disability. Our attorneys reviewed all of the records from the insurance company and requested updated medical records and a report from the client’s treating neurologist. With updated records and a full understanding of the insurance company’s arguments, our attorneys drafted a winning appeal which forced the insurance company to reinstate benefits. The client was overjoyed to know that he was going to be receiving all of the backpay he was due and would be receiving a check monthly to provide for himself and his family. ”
