Collecting Lupus Disability Benefits Is A Reality
Most disability insurance companies will challenge a lupus claim for either short or long term disability benefits on the basis that there is no objective evidence to support the restrictions and limitations associated with the disease. In order to combat this argument, it is important for individuals with lupus to appropriately document their daily struggles. Treating with a doctor that truly understands Lupus is essential to recovering benefits. Our disability insurance attorneys recommend individuals maintain a pain and functional limitation diary, as well as consulting with a supportive treating physician who is skilled at appropriately documenting the condition. Our lawyers will provide you and your treating doctor(s) with the information necessary to prove your claim. It is our job to put you in the best position to collect benefits if you are unable to work.
Each person with lupus suffers differently. Since it is an autoimmune disorder, it is suggested that disability claimants avoid any environment that may expose them to infectious people. As a result, individuals with lupus who attempt to continue employment could potentially relapse and be unable to work in any sheltered job environment with reasonable continuity. Our firm helps individuals who have been wrongfully denied their lupus disability claim or need assistance filling out an initial disability application. We handle ERISA appeals, lawsuits and applications for benefits. Let’s discuss how we can assist you.
How the Symptoms of Lupus Can Cause Your Disability
Signs and symptoms associated with the four recognized types of lupus may come on suddenly or develop slowly, be mild or severe and temporary or permanent. Additionally, the signs and symptoms of lupus that an individual experiences will depend on which body systems are being affected by the disease.

- Mouth sores
- Hair loss
- Raynaud’s phenomenon
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Dry eyes
- Easily bruised
- Memory loss
There are several treatment options that can help individuals with lupus when the signs and symptoms are moderate or mild. When dealing with the fluctuating nature of a disease like lupus, individuals may find it more beneficial to seek the disability benefits they deserve. In a free consultation, our firm can explain your rights and provide answers regarding your eligibility for lupus disability benefits.

Reviews from Our Clients
Very satisfied with the work of this team. Took well care of my case and took all the necessary time to be responsive and attentive when I had questions. Guided me through recovery and returning to normalcy. All thanks to Jason & Tabitha, thank you!
I’m extremely satisfied with the experience I have had with this firm from day one. The lawyer who has handled my case, Alex, is very efficient and attentive to all my questions and concerns. They are always aware of how my case has gone and they care about my health. I feel optimistic with them because they are very attentive during the process of my claim. I would not hesitate to recommend families and friends if in any situation they need their services. Kathleen as well has been very well and assisted me with this case. I highly appreciate everything they have done for me.
It’s unfortunate when disability insurance companies come after older disabled policyholders just to help their bottom line. It can be a living nightmare the damage they can do to a family. Dell Disability Lawyers are polite, understanding and knowledgeable. They call you back and answer any question you have no matter how unimportant it can be. The amount of stress they took off of myself and family was incalculable. I recommend them highly to take care of any disability case whether it be filing for benefits or reversing a claim decision. They are outstanding.
I could not have been happier or more appreciative of the hard work they performed on my behalf. I was well briefed on my case and it was closed in a timely manner with a financially successful resolution.
Mr. Symonds and Sonia as well as everyone else we have worked with throughout this process have been very helpful, professional and caring to our situation. We are very thankful to have this great team on our side.
Without them my LTD company was dropping my plan with me still suffering from my accident, even with doctor’s statements I’m still disabled. The LTD company didn’t want to advance my policy to the next stage of years of pay. Dell Disability Lawyers saved my policy, and helped to enforce the LTD company’s own policy (for its policy holder, me) that I would be covered still under the LTD policy I had paid for at my previous job, when my accident occurred. These lawyers know what they are doing and can help you too. LTD companies will try to drop you when you still need coverage just because they don’t want to pay on your policy anymore. Don’t let them break contract with ya because they are trying to get out of it. Hit em with legal action to ensure the continuation of your policy you paid for. Dell Disability worked very well for me and continue to do so.
I was denied long term disability benefits from The Hartford after being on it for years. I found Dell Disability Lawyers after doing research online. In a matter of days they responded and explained to me everything that would be done. Dell Disability Lawyers were able to settle my suit against The Hartford very quickly and responded to me quickly. I would definitely recommend this team of lawyers for anyone that is fighting for their disability insurance.
I have had nothing but a great experience with Dell Disability Law Firm. Mr. Alex Palamara and his team went above and beyond my expectations. They will respond to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Thank you once again for taking my case.
This law firm is the best so far. MetLife denied me two times, they appealed two times for me and they won of course. So if you are on disability and want a chance at winning your case use this firm Dell disability lawyers, kind courteous understanding and they get the job done. You won’t be disappointed.
