“A woman from Michigan worked as a research specialist for a Native American tribe. Due to her years of working she had developed carpal tunnel syndrome and associated pain and numbness in her hands. Her condition progressed to the point where she could no longer work. She was approved for short-term disability benefits but denied long-term disability. The long-term disability insurer claimed that she could work.

Needing an income to survive and unable to work, she reached out to Fields Disability. Her attorney at Fields Disability drafted and filed an appeal with the insurer which included updated medical records. The appeal was denied and her attorney immediately filed suit in federal court. Leveraging his knowledge of the file and law, her attorney was able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company which provided her with the security that she needed.”
