“A manager of a Kroger’s grocery store in West Virginia suffered from a number of different conditions. After attempting to continue working despite his condition, he soon realized he simply couldn’t work. After applying for short-term disability benefits, MetLife denied his claim for benefits. Their denial claimed that the medical information available did not provide clinical findings that would preclude him from working.
Not sure what he should do, he reached out to Fields Disability. After completing his review of the client’s file from the insurance company, his attorney developed a plan to fight the denial. He updated medical records and obtained a report from the client’s treating doctor and drafted a winning appeal. The insurance company reversed their decision and reinstated the client’s benefits and paid all the past-due benefits. The client was extremely relieved and grateful to have his sole source of income back.”
