“A woman who worked as an Call Center Manager in Iowa became disabled after a long struggle with fibromyalgia. Her chronic pain severely limited her ability to work and focus on managing her employees. She applied for disability benefits, but the long-term disability carrier was extremely skeptical of her claim. After receiving a denial, the woman filed three separate appeals on her own. The insurance company denied each and every one, stating the medical information available did not provide a basis for an inability to work.
The woman hired Fields Disability to sue the insurance company. After reviewing the file from the insurance company, her attorney noted several flaws in the review process. After the suit was filed, the attorney went to work negotiating a settlement based on several critical errors in the insurer’s review of the claim. The insurer agreed to pay a substantial financial award to our client, who was extremely pleased with the settlement.”
