Gastrointestinal Disorder Social Security Disability Claims Attorneys
You’re used to working every day – you’ve been doing it your whole life, but now your gastrointestinal disorder has made it impossible to work any longer. It’s time to talk with us at Binder & Binder® about your options for gastrointestinal disorder disability benefits. Our Social Security Disability attorneys are ready to help you determine your eligibility for benefits, file your application, and prove your gastrointestinal disorder disability claim.
Social Security Disability benefits are available to people with many different kinds of gastrointestinal disorders including:
- Gastrointestinal hemorrhaging
- Chronic liver disease
- Gastroesophageal reflux
- Liver dysfunction
- Liver transplantation
- Crohn’s disease
- Interstitial cystitis
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Short bowel syndrome (SBS)
- Peptic ulcers
- Weight loss or malnutrition due to any digestive disorder
Gastrointestinal disorders often require an extreme change of lifestyle. Some will require a change in diet or lifetime medication while others may require that constant access to a restroom. Whatever the type, gastrointestinal disorders can be very debilitating – however, you still must be able to prove your disability. Your gastrointestinal disorder must be shown to persist on repeated examinations despite therapy to establish that it will last for a continuous period of at least 12 months to qualify you for gastrointestinal disorder disability benefits. Medical record documentation of doctors’ appointments, medications and treatment, and treating doctors’ opinions are critical to proving you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. With gastrointestinal disorders x-ray images, sonograms, CAT scans, and/or MRI imaging may be required as well.
If you are suffering from a disability or gastrointestinal disorder and your doctor says you can’t work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.
