“A woman who worked as the manager of a bank became unable to work due to a combination of severe asthma and osteoporosis. Her condition prevented her from doing any type of work, much less her own. She initially received short-term disability benefits but was later denied long-term disability benefits. The insurer claimed that the medical records did not show she was unable to perform her own occupation.

Unsure of what to do, she reached out to Fields Disability. Her attorney at Fields went right to work updating the client’s medical records to submit to the insurance company. With updated medical information, the attorney drafted an appeal which made the case for disability. The insurance company denied the claim on appeal.

The attorney immediately filed a lawsuit in federal court. After negotiation, they were able to settle the claim for a great value to the client which mitigated any risk of losing with litigation. The client was overjoyed with the result. ”
