Our Disability Insurance Attorneys Discuss Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Disability Claims



The pain and discomfort caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) make it very difficult for claimants to concentrate on their work. IBS also makes it almost impossible for a person to commit to a daily job schedule due to the frequent need to use the bathroom and the pain experience during IBS attacks. It is common for IBS to coincide with other medical conditions such as anxiety or depression.

Disability companies will often argue that IBS is a mental condition and not a physical condition. They will make this argument so that they can limit benefits to only two years of payments. IBS is also challenged by disability companies, because the cause of IBS is unknown. Our disability insurance attorneys understand how restricting this condition can be, and are here to help you get the insurance benefits you need.

Disability insurance carriers often claim IBS is temporary illness and should not be disabling for extended periods of time. They frequently deny claims without cause, or only allow benefits for limited disability. In order to pursue a successful long-term disability insurance claim, you need the experience Dell & Schaefer can provide on your side.

Not everyone suffering from IBS qualifies for long-term disability benefits; therefore, the medical records of each client must be reviewed to determine the level of restrictions. Our disability insurance attorneys will work with you and your doctors to make sure you have the best medical documentation possible in order to support your claim.

Some people are able to control their IBS symptoms with proper diet, stress management and prescription medications. However, for many people IBS is a disabling disorder. People who suffer from IBS miss three times as many work days as people who do not have the condition. They may be unable to work, attend social events or even travel short distances.
