Yes, you can absolutely get long term disability insurance benefits for an invisible disease.
Multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, Lyme disease, and chronic fatigue syndrome, are examples of diseases that cause serious impairments, but are not obviously, or visibly, disabling.
These conditions cause symptoms such as fatigue, chronic pain, and brain fog. Symptoms like this cannot be seen in a medical exam or on an imaging report. It is for these reasons people who suffer from these types of conditions can have a more difficult time proving their disability. These conditions and their symptoms are invisible to the world but are very real and present to the people suffering from them.
A great majority of our clients have conditions that insurance companies are hesitant to acknowledge as disabling. It is our job to educate the insurance company and use medical and non-medical evidence to prove these conditions are in fact disabling.
To prove a disability from an invisible disease we rely on things like:
treating providers for detailed records or letters
statements from friends and family
physical tests to demonstrate how pain impacts movement
cognitive testing to demonstrate impairment
We use this evidence to prove the impact of the disease on the claimants functionality.
If you or someone you know is struggling with an invisible disease and looking to file a disability claim, or fighting for their disability benefits, call the attorneys at Dabdoub Law Firm.
