Does Fibromyalgia Qualify for Long Term Disability Benefits?

There are few things worse than contracting a debilitating disease that prevents you from returning to work. When you do, you have a lot to consider, such as how you will pay medical bills, the daily costs of keeping/running a home, and more. Fortunately, in many cases, if you have fibromyalgia, there is a very good chance that you may qualify for long term disability insurance. When someone has fibromyalgia, they often experience insomnia, memory issues, mood issues, and widespread musculoskeletal pain. Fibromyalgia, in the eyes of most medical professionals, is a disease that amplifies the way your brain perceives physical pain, and this condition can be contracted through various triggering events, including surgeries, physical trauma, an infection, and more. In other cases, people develop the disease with no particular triggering event at all. Regardless of the circumstances of your fibromyalgia, it can be quite clear how such a medical condition can prevent an individual from returning to work, and if you believe you are unable to return to the workforce, our nationwide long term disability attorneys are here to help you obtain the benefits you need to move on with your life. Please continue reading and give us a call to learn more. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the perks of obtaining long term disability benefits?

When someone’s long term disability claim is approved, they will either receive monthly insurance payments, or one lump-sum payment from their insurance company. These payments can be used to help cover the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and other financial hardships you’ve incurred as a result of your debilitating medical condition, and our firm is here to help you receive them.

How do I file a long term disability claim?

Filing a long term disability claim is not always easy, which is why you need an experienced nationwide long term disability attorney on your side. The first step in filing your claim is speaking with your insurer or your employer to learn more about your policy. Our firm can then file your claim within 180 days, wherein we will include a wide array of information supporting your claim, such as medical records, MRI results, family medical history, and, perhaps most importantly, a doctor’s note regarding the extent of your disability (how it affects your daily life, and how it prevents you from returning to work). If you have any additional questions, give us a call today.
