“A man who worked in as a Quality Control Clerk for US Foods suffered from chronic and debilitating pain in his ankle and neck, as well as Hepatitis C. As a result, he was unable to continue to perform his job. After paying benefits for two years, his long-term disability insurer, Prudential, denied his claim alleging that there was no evidence that his condition prevented him from performing occupations that they had identified.
Not knowing what to do, he reached out to the attorneys at Fields Disability. His attorney at Fields reviewed all of the records the insurance company had and began getting updated records to provide. He also obtained a report from his treating doctor which highlighted that the client could not work with his condition. His attorney then drafted a winning appeal which outlined the deficiencies in Prudential’s review of the claim. On appeal, the insurance company reversed their decision and reinstated the payment of monthly benefits. The client was ecstatic to hear that he was going to have the income he needed to get by while he worked on managing his pain. ”
