“A security guard from Minnesota began experiencing panic attacks and anxiety. Her symptoms worsened and eventually she was unable to sleep for more than an hour at a time. She was forced to stop working. She applied for long term disability benefits from the disability insurance company, but was informed that she did not meet their definition of “disabled.”
Upset and worried about her lost income, she contacted the Long Term Disability attorneys at Fields Disability for help mounting an appeal against the insurer. Our attorneys reviewed the medical record and contacted our client’s doctors to obtain reports detailing symptoms and treatments.
The medical records from the initial decision were reinforced with the new reports and ultimately the long term disability insurance company overturned their decision. Our client was awarded backpay and ongoing benefits. She was happy to have her benefits paid and to continue her treatment without the fight against her insurance company.”
