“Our client had worked as a Reservation Agent for a number of years, but developed severe low back pain and radiculopathy. He was forced to leave work. He applied for and received long-term disability benefits for his employer sponsored policy. After he was paid disability benefits for two years, his long-term disability insurer denied ongoing benefits, stating he could return to work full-time at a number of different jobs.
The man hired Fields Disability and our attorneys reviewed our client’s file and decided to pursue settlement with the insurer through a federal lawsuit. Our attorneys leveraged several mistakes in the administration of the claim into a substantial settlement, reflecting almost the entire value of future benefits under the policy. Our client was ecstatic to receive the benefits he was rightfully owed under the policy.”
