“A young woman from Hawaii suffered from a seizure disorder which caused her to experience multiple seizures daily. Not surprisingly, she was unable to perform her job as a cashier at Costco. Her long-term disability insurer initially accepted the claim, however they later denied her claim for benefits. The insurer alleged that the seizures were a symptom of a mental disorder, not a physical condition, despite medical evidence indicating there was an electrical abnormality in her brain. Therefore, she had reached the maximum period for mental health disorders under her policy.

Scared and unsure of what to do, she reached out to Fields Disability. Her attorney at Fields went right to work reviewing the entire file from the insurance company and creating a plan. Soon after, he filed a lawsuit in federal court. Leveraging his knowledge of the file and law, her attorney was able to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company which she was very happy with.”
