“A nurse supervisor from Missouri was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She took medication to offset her symptoms but eventually she began feeling extreme fatigue and cognition problems. She got into a car accident because her right leg suddenly went numb. She was forced to stop working. She applied for long-term disability but was denied by the insurance company and was told she could return to work.
With her symptoms worsening and her income gone, she called Fields Disability for help. Our team gathered all our client’s medical records as well as the insurance company’s file. Our attorneys ordered additional neurologic evaluations. Once the evidence was strengthened, Fields attorneys sent a strong appeal to the insurer. The denial was overturned and our client received a lump-sum benefit for back-pay and was awarded ongoing monthly benefits. She was overjoyed with the help Fields Disability provided, and used the back-pay check to catch up on bills and continue treatment.”
