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.

FAQ

Do you work in my state?

Yes. We are a national disability insurance law firm that is available to represent you regardless of where you live in the United States. We have partner lawyers in every state and we have filed lawsuits in most federal courts nationwide. Our disability lawyers represent disability claimants at all stages of a claim for disability insurance benefits. There is nothing that our lawyers have not seen in the disability insurance world.

What are your fees?

Since we represent disability insurance claimants at different stages of a disability insurance claim we offer a variety of different fee options. We understand that claimants living on disability insurance benefits have a limited source of income; therefore we always try to work with the claimant to make our attorney fees as affordable as possible.

The three available fee options are a contingency fee agreement (no attorney fee or cost unless we make a recovery), hourly fee or fixed flat rate.

In every case we provide each client with a written fee agreement detailing the terms and conditions. We always offer a free initial phone consultation and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you in obtaining payment of your disability insurance benefits.

Do I have to come to your office to work with your law firm?

No. For purposes of efficiency and to reduce expenses for our clients we have found that 99% of our clients prefer to communicate via telephone, e-mail, fax, GoToMeeting.com sessions, or Skype. If you prefer an initial in-person meeting please let us know. A disability company will never require you to come to their office and similarly we are set up so that we handle your entire claim without the need for you to come to our office.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Celestine D.

I am a 61 year old Senior Business Analyst. I had been working at a health insurance company for approximately 11 years when I became disabled and have had numerous, bulging disks, nerves that were severely impinged, and active arthritis and degenerative disk disease throughout my spine. I underwent back surgery for L1 thru L5 infusion which included insertion of 2 titanium rods and 6 pins. I continue to undergo physical therapy 3 xs per week. Not to mention the surgery left me worse than before the surgery considered a FAILED BACK SURGERY. I’m unable to sit or stand for more than 2 hours with getting up. I am unable to walk for more than 1 city block. I also have many other medical conditions. After collecting LTD from Lincoln Financial for about 3 years, the harassment began. They decided that I was no longer disabled. In short they felt I was capable of returning back to the work force. (Social Security Disability deemed me permanently disabled)

After fighting with Lincoln and exhausting my appeals I decided to research and hire an attorney. I selected Dell & Schaefer based on their website, case success statistics, and the speed at which they returned my calls and emails.

Let me tell you, my experience in working with Rachel Alters and her assistant Michal Mizrahi is nothing short of outstanding. They responded quickly to phone calls and emails and were mindful of my concerns and information needs. Talking with the both of them made me feel confident and assured they were doing the best for me. I cannot say enough good things about Michal. She anticipated my needs and was proactive in keeping me informed as my case progressed. What a TEAM they make. Any time I reached out with questions or concerns they were very responsive and always left me feeling satisfied that I had the best in my corner. Rachel is an angel. She is so down to earth compassionate, professional and trustworthy attorney. Rachel was there to guide me from the start and helped me get through this stressful and lengthy process.

While attempting to handle it on my own, my long-term-disability claim had been denied two previous times. With the help of Rachel Alters and her team, I was able to obtain a settlement I never would have been able to get without their assistance. Rachel and her team far exceeded my expectations in every capacity. She was focused, clear, responsive, efficient and above all exceedingly knowledgeable.
