“A woman who worked as a customer service representative for Delta Dental Plan suffered from a seizure disorder which resulted in her experiencing total blackouts. These blackouts could occur at any time. Due to this, she was no longer able to perform her job. Her long-term disability insurer initially accepted and paid the claim. They later denied the claim stating that she could perform other jobs.
She reached out to the attorneys at Fields Disability for help. Her attorney obtained all of her medical records and contacted her treating doctors to provide the necessary support. On appeal, the insurer again denied the claim after which her attorney filed a lawsuit in federal court. He was then able to negotiate a settlement with the insurer that maximized the value to the client while at the same time mitigating the significant risk of moving forward with litigation.”
