“Prudential discontinued the disability benefits of a disabled software engineer. She suffered from neuralgia, depression, and severe anxiety. The insurance company argued that the woman was able to return to her stressful and demanding job, though it cited absolutely no medical evidence in support of its position.

The woman hired Fields Disability to handle her appeal. We gathered updated medical records and reports from the woman’s treating doctors stating she was unable to perform any kind of work. We submitted a brief arguing Prudential’s review was selective and arbitrary due to the lack of medical evidence supporting its decision. Prudential overturned its decision, stating it agreed the woman was completely disabled.
