“Our client was a warehouse manager from Missouri. Unfortunately, he suffered from a long history of lymphoma, requiring significant chemotherapy. Our client battled through his cancer treatments and returned to work when he began to suffer from the long term side effects and symptoms from chemotherapy, including Peripheral Neuropathy, Chronic Fatigue, Pulmonary Embolus, and a major Neurocognitive Disorder. He applied for long-term disability benefits through The Hartford, but The Hartford denied his claim. The Hartford asserted he had appeared to have recovered from his cancer diagnosis, and appeared capable of performing his own occupation without any restrictions.
His next step was to reach out to Fields Disability for help. Our client retained Fields Disability to help him apply for Social Security Disability benefits and fight The Hartford’s denial of long-term disability. Our team was able to successfully gather the evidence necessary to win both his Social Security Disability benefits at the application stage, and convince The Hartford to overturn its denial of long-term disability benefits. We established that all of the independent medical evidence in this case supported our client’s treating doctor and her opinion that our client could not work with his severe fatigue and cognitive side effects. ”
