“A Network Communications Technician from New York was in a car accident. Because of the accident he had two spinal fusions and microfracture surgery on his hip. He also suffered memory issues and trouble concentrating after the accident. He was forced to stop working and received long-term disability benefits for seven years through his employee benefits plan. The insurance company sent him a letter after seven years of benefits that stated he would no longer receive benefits because he could return to work.
He contacted Fields Disability for help. Our team contacted all our client’s treating physicians and obtained a comprehensive medical history. We contacted physicians for additional medical reports supporting our client’s case. Our attorneys reviewed the medical records and drafted a strong appeal to the insurer. The insurance company changed their mind and our client received a lump-sum payment for back-pay and ongoing monthly benefits. He was relieved to be through fighting the insurer, and was happy to have his income restored.”
