Lupus Disability Claims Attorneys
Our Disability Insurance Lawyers Can Help You Get Benefits
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and intense pain. The condition most frequently affects women ages 15 to 44, but anyone can develop lupus at any age. Lupus can attack any part of your body, causing intense pain, and the condition is largely invisible to outsiders. Even medical professionals have a hard time diagnosing lupus, which is one reason why a lupus diagnosis should justify disability benefits.
With the debilitating effects of lupus, many people find it difficult to maintain gainful employment. People who suffer from the condition experience what they call “the lupus lottery,” because they never know what symptoms they are going to wake up with. In addition to chronic pain and extreme fatigue, someone with Lupus may experience seemingly random kidney failure or problems with other vital organs.
If Lupus makes it impossible for you to go to work, and you are covered under an employer plan or independent disability insurance, you may be entitled to short-term or long-term disability benefits, or both, depending on how your condition affects you.

No one knows what causes lupus, and no 2 cases of lupus are the same. Lupus occurs when your immune system attacks healthy tissues and organs, including your skin, joints, blood cells, kidneys, brain, heart, and lungs.
The most distinctive sign of lupus is a “butterfly rash,” or a rash that unfolds across both cheeks and resembles the wings of a butterfly.
Other signs and symptoms include:
- Joint pain, stiffness, and swelling
- Aches and pains
- Skin lesions
- Light sensitivity
- Raynaud’s disease
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Dry eyes
- Confusion and memory loss
Lupus can have a variety of effects on your body. Kidney failure, for example, is one of the leading causes of death for individuals with lupus. With complications affecting key organs, many people with lupus are unable to work or live normal lives. The majority of individuals with lupus (65%) cite chronic pain as the most difficult aspect of the disease.
Dealing with lupus can also be expensive. On average, each lupus patient loses $50,000 a year as a result of healthcare costs and lost productivity. To account for these expenses when they are unable to work, many people with lupus turn to disability insurance.
