“Depression rendered a 56-year old woman incapable of performing her job as a Financial Analysis Manager. Her job required a high degree of critical thinking and organizational skills. The woman’s treating psychologist told The Standard that the woman was not capable of performing her job duties, but The Standard ignored the doctor and refused to pay the woman her short-term disability benefits.
The woman turned to Fields Disability for help. Our team assembled an appeal in which we argued that our client’s treating doctors’ opinions were more credible than the doctor that The Standard hired to opine that our client was not disabled. In the end, The Standard was forced to overturn their previous denial of benefits and the woman received payments dating back several months. ”
