“An emergency dispatcher from Oklahoma had knee and back pain so severe she had to stop working. She received short term disability benefits for a few months, but when she applied to make the benefits long-term the insurance company denied her claim. The insurer said that her condition was “pre-existing” so coverage did not apply. She appealed the decision, but the insurer maintained it’s position.
Worried about her lost income, she called Fields Disability for help. Our attorneys reviewed her file and determined she had a good case for a lawsuit in federal court. Our support team compiled all the documentation from the insurance company to prepare for a hearing. During preparations for arguments in federal court, Fields attorneys negotiated a lump-sum settlement. Our client was overjoyed with the settlement check and was relieved to be through fighting her insurance company.”
