“A nanny for a young family in Chicago began to suffer from severe anxiety and depression. Due to the effects of her anxiety, she was unable to perform her job. The long-term disability insurer denied her claim on the basis that she had not provided evidence that she was prevented from performing her job. She appealed the denial but the insurer again denied her claim.
The Fields Disability attorneys quickly filed a lawsuit in federal court. Despite a limited administrative record, her attorneys fought hard leveraging everything in the record which supported the client’s disability as well as strong negotiating tactic. The insurance company initially offered a settlement but our attorneys fought hard to make the insurance company increase their offer. They were able to reach a much more favorable settlement with the insurance company which put money in the client’s pocket she otherwise wouldn’t have had.”
