“A retail manager from Maryland had severe hip pain and was forced to stop working. He was approved for Social Security Disability benefits and long-term disability benefits through his insurer at work. The long-term disability benefits suddenly stopped after two years of payment. The insurer said that the definition of “disabled” changed and he was no longer eligible for benefits.
Worried about his lost income, and unable to stand or walk for more than a few minutes at a time, he called Fields Disability for help. Our team acquired updated medical records from our client’s doctors and ordered new reports to highlight our client’s lack of mobility. Fields Disability attorneys reviewed the evidence and drafted a strong appeal to the insurance company. Unfortunately, the insurer did not change its mind.
Fields Disability attorneys filed a lawsuit in federal court to fight for our client’s benefits. During preparation for a hearing, our attorneys negotiated a generous lump-sum settlement. Our client was overjoyed with the result and was impressed with the professional advocacy of Fields Disability.”
