“A diesel mechanic at an oil company became disabled after developing fibromyalgia. Initially, Cigna paid benefits to the man and agreed he was completely disabled. After two years, the insurance company decided to deny benefits, stating the man could return to work at a number of sedentary occupations. The man was shocked because Cigna had treated him fairly in the past.
The decided to hire Fields Disability to help him appeal Cigna’s decision. Our attorneys updated our client’s medical records and secured written reports from our client’s treating physicians describing his severe and debilitating symptoms. The appeal was submitted with a substantial legal memorandum arguing Cigna ignored the medical evidence supporting our client’s disability. Cigna reinstated benefits shortly thereafter and sent the man a large back pay check. He was so pleased with the way the appeal was handled that he subsequently hired Fields Disability to monitor and manage his disability claim with Cigna.”
