“Our client worked as a Remediation Representative prior to developing low back pain and tearing his meniscus. He filed a claim for long term disability benefits, as he could no longer work. The insurer denied the claim, stating his low back pain was a pre-existing condition under the policy.

However, the insurer failed to consider the meniscus injury that severely affected the man’s mobility. Fields Disability filed a lawsuit against the insurer for past and future benefits. After several weeks of negotiations, the insurer agreed to settle the case on favorable terms for our client. ”
