“A woman from Indiana suffered from a severe and chronic back condition which caused her significant pain. The pain was so significant it required her to undergo surgery. The surgery was partially successful but also resulted in complications from leaking spinal fluid. She was unable to work as a result of her pain.
Her long-term disability insurer initially approved her claim and paid benefits for two years. They later denied the claim arguing that her condition was precluded from further benefits under the policy.
Scared and unsure of what to do, she reached out to Fields Disability. Her attorney at Fields went right to work filing a lawsuit in federal court. After filing the lawsuit, her attorney was able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company which maximized the value to the client while at the same time mitigating the risk of a verdict in favor of the insurer. The client was very happy with the outcome and was relieved to no longer have to deal with the insurance company.”
