“A California finance manager began having back pain. He had undergone three prior back surgeries, and the hardware in his back was failing. His pain was severe when sitting, so he had to stop working at his office job. He applied for long-term disability benefits through his employer and was denied by the insurance company based on an off-hand doctor’s note that said he could work from home.
Worried about his lost income, he contacted Fields Disability for help. Our team requested medical records from all our client’s physicians to write a strong appeal. The insurance company denied the appeal, but our attorneys began preparing for a lawsuit in federal court. During preparations for a hearing, Fields Disability attorneys negotiated a generous lump-sum settlement. Our client was happy with the settlement check, and pleased with the professional advocacy Fields Disability provided. ”
