“A young woman Arizona was involved in two separate motor vehicle accidents. She suffered from a mild traumatic brain injury as a result. The TBI later caused significant mental health issues which prevented her from working and from completing her dissertation.
The long-term disability insurer initially accepted the claim and paid benefits. They later denied her claim for benefits stating that they believed she could work in other occupations which they had identified. The client attempted to appeal the denial on her own and was denied.
Frustrated and unsure about what to do, she found the attorneys at Fields Disability. Her attorney at Fields filed a lawsuit in federal court. After negotiation, they were able to reach a settlement which provided incredible value to the client. It also provided her the satisfaction of knowing that she would never have to deal with the insurer again. The client was very pleased with the settlement.”
