Fibromyalgia Claims

LTD Fibromyalgia Claims

Fibromyalgia is a condition that is not easily diagnosed, making it more and more difficult to obtain long term disability benefits when the condition prevents you from working. Simply put, insurance companies do not like to pay claims to individuals with conditions that are not concrete and easily demonstrable; unfortunately Fibromyalgia claims seem to fall under this category. While Fibromyalgia may be more difficult to detect and diagnose than other conditions, its symptoms can be just as painful and debilitating.

At the law firm of Burke Harvey, LLC, we understand how frustrating it can be to receive notice that your claim for long term disability benefits has been denied. We also understand how difficult it can be to pay your bills and take care of your physical condition while struggling with Fibromyalgia. Fortunately, you are not alone in your quest for LTD benefits; with more than 50 years of combined experience, our LTD Fibromyalgia claims attorneys have the knowledge and skills needed to help you pursue the benefits you are entitled to.

When Seeking Benefits, Information is Power

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that produces chronic widespread pain. This pain often leads to other conditions, such as disrupted sleeping, abnormal pain processing (by the brain), and psychological grief. When a person is diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, this chronic pain can become so severe that the patient is also affected emotionally and socially.

When appealing a denied claim for long term disability benefits, information can be key to your success. Offering your insurance company all of the information detailing your case can greatly improve your chances of obtaining benefits. When reviewing your claim, insurance companies require a great deal of information, including:

  • Detailed notes on your condition
  • Clear notes of your physician’s opinion of your condition
  • All related medical records
  • All reported income losses

Our LTD claims & appeals attorneys will help you gather all necessary information needed to file your appeal, and will work closely with your employer, doctor and accountant to insure that the information is clear, easily readable and adequately demonstrates your qualifications for benefits.

Should your insurance provider continually refuse to approve your claim, despite clear evidence that your qualify, we will help you file an ERISA lawsuit to have your case reviewed by a federal judge.
