Lupus Long Term Disability Claim

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects the body’s skin, joints, and internal organs. The human immune system produces antibodies to protect the body from viruses and bacteria. However, with Lupus the immune system cannot tell the difference between healthy antibodies and viruses. Therefore, the immune system attacks joints, skin, blood vessels, organs and tissue.

Long Term Disability Denial

Sometimes it is hard to prove Lupus symptoms to be approved for a Long Term Disability claim. It is important to show Lupus damaged organs or the symptoms are so severe that work is impossible.  Records of fatigue, fever and weight loss can help your appeal. These documented symptoms can prove limitations of working while afflicted with Lupus.

The mental limitations are harder to prove. These include the ability to remember tasks along with anxiety and severe depression.  A knowledgable complex litigation attorney will make sure that the insurance claim agent evaluates the impairment of the sense with Lupus. These include vision and skin issues that could prevent fulfilling job duties. 

Plus, Lupus is chronic and will increase damage to the body. This also needs to be conveyed to the insurance agent that even though you could work 6 months ago, that can change.  Proving total disability with Lupus is hard without having a knowledgable attorney on your side. We will work closely with medical professionals to improve your chances of your appeal.
