“A woman from Massachusetts worked as an Office Administrator for 20 years. She suffered from a number of conditions which included morbid obesity, diabetes mellitus with neuropathy, exertional dyspnea, atrial fibrillation, chronic artery disease, history of diastolic heart failure, obstructive sleep apnea, cervical discitis, osteomyelitis, left shoulder paresis, foot ulcers, and hip bursitis, among other things. Sun Life, her long-term disability insurer, initially approved the claim but later denied it claiming that she had the capacity to perform her own occupation.
Scared and not sure about what to do, she reached out to the attorneys at Fields Disability. Her attorney at Fields reviewed all of the records from the insurance company and went to work getting updated medical records. With updated records, her attorney drafted a strong appeal which cited the medical evidence as to why she could no longer work. Upon review, the insurance company overturned their denial and paid benefits. The client felt an incredible sense of relief knowing that he had an income on which to support himself and his family. ”
