“A retail store manager from Kansas began having serious back pain and knee pain. MRIs showed bulging discs in her back and that she needed knee surgery. She was forced to stop working due to the surgery and did not recover enough to return to work as a store manager. She received long term disability benefits from her employee insurance plan for a few months, but the insurer stopped payments because she apparently had not supplied enough evidence of her disability. She submitted an appeal, but the insurer upheld their decision to stop paying.
Worried for her lost income and still unable to work, she called Fields Disability for help. Our attorneys reviewed her claim file and determined she had a good claim. Our client wanted to keep her costs low, so our team pursued a quick resolution without incurring a court filing fee. Ultimately, our attorneys negotiated a generous lump-sum settlement before a lawsuit needed to be filed. Our client was pleased with the result and is happy to use her settlement check to continue her treatment.”
