“Our client worked for a number of years as an over-the-road trucker. He began experiencing syncopal episodes. His doctors had no idea what was causing the episodes, but knew he simply could not continue driving his truck.
He received benefits from Guardian, his long-term disability insurance carrier, for several months. However, he received a denial about a year into the claim. The insurer claimed that the man had failed to submit ongoing proof of his disability.
The man found Fields Disability after searching for help online. We collected medical records and a letter from his doctor explaining the dangers of the man operating any vehicle. We submitted the medical records and letter to the insurance company along with a memorandum outlining our client’s legal rights under the statute governing the policy. After review, Guardian reversed its decision to deny benefits and started paying our client’s claim. ”
