“A customer service representative from Arkansas began to lose feeling in his feet. Eventually, as a result of complications with diabetes he had three toes amputated. The alternating pain and numbness became too much and he was forced to stop work in 2015. He received long-term disability benefits for a few months through his employee insurance policy, but was suddenly told by the insurance company that he no longer fit their definition of “disabled.”

Worried that he was running out of money for treatment, he contacted Fields Disability for help with his appeal. The attorneys at Fields Disability scoured the insurer’s case file and gathered doctor’s reports to strengthen the appeal. The insurer denied the appeal.

Our attorneys filed a law suit in federal court against the insurance company. During preparations for trial, Fields Disability attorneys negotiated a generous lump-sum settlement for our client. He was happy to be done fighting the insurance company, and pleased to be able to use the settlement check to pay for his treatment.”
