“An education support specialist from Delaware began experiencing back pain. Her job required bending, lifting, and interacting with students. Eventually the pain became too much and she was forced to stop work. Her insurance company initially approved her for short-term disability benefits, but after a few months the disability payments stopped. The insurance company said she no longer fit their definition of “disabled.” Her doctors wrote the insurance company letters in response to no avail.
Worried about her lost income she contacted Fields Disability for help. Fields attorneys gathered documents from the insurance company and our client’s doctors to build the best case for our client. Our attorneys sent a strong appeal to the insurance company, highlighting doctor’s reports that the insurer overlooked in their decision. The insurance company overturned their decision and our client received ongoing benefits and a lump sum payment for back-pay. Our client was happy with the decision, and was pleased with the service Fields Disability provided. She chose our firm to help with her long-term disability benefits as well!”
