Crohn's Disease and Eligibility for SSDI
Here at the Law Offices of Stuart Pastor, I understand that living with Crohn's Disease is challenging. Crohn's Disease is classified as an inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD. People with Crohn's Disease suffer from severe abdominal cramping and frequent diarrhea. Complications from Crohn's Disease can lead to severe pain, ulcers, and decreased appetite, followed by weight loss.
If you or a loved one is suffering with Crohn's Disease and needs Social Security Disability Insurance, you deserve an advocate. You need a lawyer with experience and a wide knowledge of Social Security disability law to help you get SSDI benefits. Contact me, at my law offices in Plano or Austin, Texas. Or, call me toll free at 1-888-616-6162.
Crohn's Disease Is No Fun. It Is Also a Disability.
People who suffer from Crohn's Disease are frequently weak. Often hospitalized, people suffering from Crohn's Disease often find it difficult to hold down any job — part-time or full-time — where they must use a work station. The chronic and often severe diarrhea common with Crohn's Disease can also create problems when socializing, pursuing outdoor activities or even visiting the local shopping mall.
Every applicant for Social Security disability must prove their disability meets the eligibility requirements prescribed by the Social Security Administration: an "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months."
Proving that you are eligible for SSDI due to Crohn's Disease or other chronic illnesses can be challenging, however. For example, even if you can show that your Crohn's Disease has stopped you from working in your field, Social Security examiners could conclude that you could work in a different industry or job.
When the examiners do not see enough evidence to conclude that claimants are not able to work at all, they must deny their SSD claims. Working with a lawyer as early as possible in the process can give you the best chance to present your case as effectively as possible.
An Attorney Practicing Social Security Disability Law Since 1991
After nearly 20 years as a Social Security lawyer, I am ready to help people even in challenging cases. When I accept a Social Security disability case, I ask myself what I can do to speed up the benefit approval process. I understand the financial pressures disabled people are under, with medical bills and other expenses mounting while they are unable to work.
