“A 52-year-old sales representative from Oklahoma was removed from working after a traumatic event, which resulted in back pain, hypertension, chronic pain syndrome, anxiety and depression. He initially received long-term disability benefits, but after twenty-four months of coverage, he was sent a letter explaining that benefits would stop because he was not “disabled” from working any occupation.
Fields Disability was ready to appeal the insurer’s decision, not once but twice. The insurance company hired their own “independent” doctor to review the case after each appeal and denied the appeal both times. Our attorneys filed a lawsuit 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. ”
