“A 63-year-old Chemist from Missouri who formerly worked at a large candy company as a Research and Development Chemist suffered from chronic breathing conditions, chronic headaches, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary emboli, and multiple sites of degenerative joint disease. He initially received long-term disability benefits, but after a few months he was sent a letter explaining that benefits would stop because he no longer met the insurers definition of “disabled.” The attorneys at Fields Disability submitted an appeal with two independent medical evaluations and several reports from his physicians. The insurer decided to still deny him his benefits.
Our attorneys filed a lawsuit against the insurance company in federal court to fight for our client. During preparation for trial, Fields Disability attorneys were able to negotiate a generous lump-sum settlement for our client. He was overjoyed with the resolution of his case.”
