“Our client was as Warehouse Specialist from North Carolina. He suffered from severe and unrelenting Gout. His treating providers took him off of work and he applied for Long Term Disability benefits through his Employer’s plan with SunLife. Regrettably, SunLife denied our client’s application asserting his claim was both barred as pre-existing and even if that were not the case, his condition was not severe enough to qualify for his disability benefits.
He reached out to Fields Disability for help fighting this incorrect decision. Our team was able to establish through medical records, narrative reports, and procedural filings that our client’s claim was not barred as pre-existing. Additionally, we established that our client more than satisfied the relevant policy’s definition of disabled. After reviewing our appeal SunLife reversed its decision and paid our client his entire benefit. ”
