“An English teacher from Minnesota began feeling dizzy and fatigued. Her doctor referred her to a neurologist who discovered lesions on her brain and diagnosed her with Multiple Sclerosis. The bouts of dizziness and vertigo became too severe and forced her to stop working for about six months. She applied for short-term disability benefits through her employee insurance plan with Madison National Life Insurance. They denied her benefits, saying that she did not meet their definition of “disabled.”

Frustrated and concerned about her loss of income, she contacted Fields Disability for help with an appeal. The attorneys at Fields contacted our client’s doctors and built a strong appeal. Our client received regular updates on the appeal and was kept informed every step of the way. Ultimately, the appeal was successful and Madison National approved her claim. She received a lump-sum check for her benefits and was happy to use the funds to continue her treatments.”
