The most common digestive impairments that the Social Security Administration deals with involve abdominal pain, diarrhea, Crohn’s disease and incontinence. A Florida disability lawyer can tell you that these conditions typically fall within the category of inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome.
If you suffer from one of these conditions, you should know that you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. To help review your case and your eligibility to collect, you will want to talk to a Florida disability lawyer.
Inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome may have a severe effect on your ability to work. One way a Florida disability lawyer can argue that the impairment disrupts your work is that you spend too much time in the restroom at unpredictable moments. For many jobs, this can negatively affect your performance.
In addition, a Florida disability lawyer can tell you that you may suffer other effects from the disease such as rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, nausea, fever, fatigue and fever that may also indirectly affect your ability to work. Despite these disruptions on your life and ability to work, the Social Security Administration may be very reluctant to approve claims based on bowel impairments.
A primary reason that the Social Security Administration may deny your claim is its emphasis on objective medical evidence as opposed to your claims of symptoms suffered and other side effects. To the agency, your medical condition may be considered mild as the adjudicator may ignore the real world impact on your life. This is where a Florida disability lawyer can assist you in arguing your claim or appealing a decision by the Social Security Administration.
If you need assistance with a claim for Social Security disability benefits, you should work with an experienced Florida disability lawyer. It can be difficult to prove that you have a qualifying impairment and you may need to appeal a decision by the Social Security Administration.
