“A woman from Louisiana suffered from chronic and severe migraine headaches. This condition obviously prevented her from being able perform any work as she was completely incapacitated when a migraine would hit. MetLife, her long-term disability insurer, denied her claim, asserting that the medical information on file did not support an inability to work.
Clearly unable to work and not sure of how to fight the insurance company, she reached out to Fields Disability. Her attorney at Fields went right to work reviewing the entire file from the insurance company. After completing his review, the attorney developed a winning strategy for her appeal. He updated medical records and obtained statements from her treating neurologist. With the updated records and report, he then drafted an appeal which made it clear that the client could not work. The insurance company reversed their decision and approved the client’s claim for benefits. The client was elated to get her benefits back knowing that she would have security going forward.”
