“Our client worked for a number of years as an aircraft mechanic for an international aircraft manufacturer. After developing degenerative arthritis leading to bilateral total knee replacement surgeries, our client left work and filed a claim for long term disability benefits. He received benefits for approximately two years, when Cigna told our client his condition had improved enough to allow him to return to work at a number of sedentary jobs.
The man found Fields Disability after searching for help online. We collected medical records and secured a supportive report from the treating doctor. We submitted the medical records and report to the insurance company along with a memorandum outlining our client’s legal rights under the statute governing the policy. After a brief review, Cigna reversed its decision to deny benefits and started paying our client’s claim. He was very pleased with the final result and decided to hire Fields Disability to manage his claim on an ongoing basis to prevent further wrongful denials.”
