“A woman who worked as an mortgage servicer at a financial service firm in Idaho suffered from severe kidney disease that severely limited her ability to work full-time. Her long-term disability carrier was extremely skeptical of her claim, requesting that she attend a functional capacity evaluation. Based on the results of the evaluation, the insurance company denied long-term disability benefits. They claimed that the medical information available did not provide a basis for an inability to work. She appealed on her own, but the insurance company did not reverse their decision.
The woman hired Fields Disability to sue the insurance company. After reviewing the file from the insurance company, her attorney planned a strategy to fight the decision in court. After the suit was filed, the attorney went to work negotiating a settlement based on several critical errors in the insurer’s review of the claim. The insurer agreed to pay a substantial settlement to the woman. She was thrilled with the final result.”
