“Our client worked chief executive officer of a business in Virginia. She suffered from Sjogren’s Syndrome, Leucopenia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. After her doctors removed her from work she applied for Long Term Disability benefits through her employer’s plan. Unfortunately, the insurance company denied her claim for benefits. Our client appealed this decision on her own but was unable to reverse the insurer’s decision.
Having exhausted her appeals, she reached out to Fields Disability for help filing a lawsuit. Our team filed a lawsuit on our client’s behalf and entered into settlement negotiations with the insurer’s attorney. Our attorneys were able to negotiate a settlement permitting our client to move on from this matter, without having to go to court over her claim. ”
