“A man worked as a Distribution Coordinator for Dirscoll’s. He suffered from severe back pain and depression. His condition prevented him from performing his job which required him to be on his feet for many hours per day. His insurer, Cigna initially approved his claim for long-term disability benefits. The claim was later deniedby Cigna, asserting that they found he had no activity restrictions that were medically supported and that they had identified occupations he could perform.
Clearly unable to work and unable to fight the insurance company, he reached out to Fields Disability. His attorney at Fields went right to work reviewing insurance company’s file. After completing his review, his attorney developed a plan to fight the denial. He updated medical records and requested reports from the client’s treating doctors. With the updated records and reports, he then drafted a winning appeal. The insurance company reversed their decision and reinstated the client’s monthly benefits and paid all the past-due benefits. The client was so thankful to get his benefits back and relieved that he would no longer have to worry about finding income to support his family.”
