“A clinical manager applied for long-term disability benefits through her insurer after suffering fatigue, dizziness, headaches, and decreased short term memory, but was denied for benefits. The insurance company first denied her benefits when they determined that she was not eligible for benefits because the documentation did not support the conclusion that she was unable to perform the material and substantial duties of her own occupation as a clinical manager throughout her 180-day elimination period. She appealed this denial on her own, without the assistance of legal counsel, and the insurer again denied her claim for long-term disability benefits.
Upset with the insurer’s decision to deny long-term disability benefits, she called Fields Disability for help. The attorneys at Fields Disability filed a lawsuit in federal court to fight for our client. During preparation for trial, Fields Disability attorneys were able to negotiate a generous lump-sum settlement for our client, who was overjoyed with the resolution of her case.”
