Conditions

Ideally, there would be a test for every medical condition that definitively proves that you have the condition, and precisely measures the limitations you experience as a result of the condition but, unfortunately, that is not always the case.

Many disabling conditions are also slowly progressive and, as a professional with such a condition, it can be difficult to know when things are bad enough to file a disability insurance claim. With all medical conditions—and particularly slowly progressive conditions—the fight is not over when a diagnosis is obtained. That is just the beginning. The more difficult part is proving up your limitations (particularly subjective symptoms, such as pain and numbness) and showing that your condition prevents you from performing the duties of your prior occupation.

Disability insurance companies know this and often seek to take advantage of the limitations of medical science. If your medical condition falls into this gray area, instead of gathering additional information to learn more about your condition, in good faith, many companies will simply determine that your claim is “unsupported” because your reports of your subjective symptoms do not provide adequate objective, verifiable evidence of disability. They will likely seek to corroborate this unfair determination with other evidence taken out of context, including surveillance videos, social media posts, statements you made on the claim forms, inconsistences during your interview, one-sided discussions with your doctors, etc. Because of this, it is important that both your treating physician and the attorney handling your disability claim are familiar with your condition, so that your claim can be presented in the most effective manner possible to ensure that you collect your rightful benefits.
