What Disability Claims are Harder to Prove?

At Ben Glass Law, we don’t get easy disability cases - we have enough experience in this area that we are able to help people dealing with difficult to prove disability claims, and so we actively look to help those people. We're in the business of helping disability victims fight when their claim has been denied. If you have a broken bone, chances are your disability insurer isn't going to give you trouble by denying your claim.

What are the Hard Disability Cases?

Hard cases involve certain disease processes and conditions. Here are the conditions we see, and work with, the most:

  • Neuropathic Pain Disorders (Fibromyalgia, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome, etc)
  • Mental Illnesses (Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia)
  • Lyme Disease
  • Arthitic Conditions (OsteoArthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)
  • Cancer
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • and Spinal Fusions

We have handled many cases on each of the above conditions. In fact, many cases involve multiple of the above-listed conditions. Sometimes you may have multiple impairing conditions that on their own wouldn't be a disability, but together they add up to you being unable to work.

Why are these Conditions "Hard Cases?"

These conditions are hard because they aren’t necessarily disabling. All of them have some element of subjectiveness to them. As an example, Fibromyalgia itself isnt disabling. The accompanying pain and fatigue and medication may be.

To win these types of cases requires special knowledge of the conditions, their accompanying symptoms, and what information insurers want to see. Our attorney have experience putting together winning arguments in these cases. We have knowledge of the conditions and the symptoms; we know what insurers want to see. Because of our extensive experience in a field of law that most attorneys will never deal with, we know what to do and how to do it.
