We know how to prove neurological disabilities.

If you are trying to prove disability claims for neurological conditions, it can be a complex and overwhelming process. However, there are some steps you can take to increase your chances of a successful claim.

Here are some tips for proving your disability claims for neurological conditions:

The first step in proving a disability claim for a neurological condition is to get a diagnosis from a qualified medical professional. This can be a neurologist, psychiatrist, or another medical specialist who is familiar with your condition.

Keeping detailed records of your condition can be essential in proving your disability claim. Keep track of any symptoms you experience, the frequency and severity of those symptoms, and any treatments you have received. Also, document any work limitations you have experienced due to your condition.

To support your disability claim, you will need to collect documentation from medical professionals, employers, and other sources. This could include medical records, treatment plans, and employer letters verifying your work limitations.

Consulting us can be a helpful step in proving your disability claim for a neurological condition. A lawyer can help you navigate the complex disability claims process and ensure that you have the necessary documentation to support your claim

The disability claims process can take time, and it is essential to be patient throughout the process. Continue to gather documentation, follow up with medical professionals, and stay in touch with your disability attorney to ensure that your claim is progressing.

Overall, proving disability claims for neurological conditions can be challenging, but with the right documentation and support, you can increase your chances of a successful claim.

Denial of LTD claims for neurological conditions

There are several reasons why disability claims for neurological conditions may be denied. Here are a few of the most common reasons:

Neurological conditions can be complex, and it may be difficult to establish a clear diagnosis based solely on subjective symptoms. Insurance companies may require objective medical evidence, such as imaging or laboratory tests, to support the diagnosis.

If an individual has not sought medical treatment or has not followed through with prescribed treatment, insurance companies may argue that the disability is not severe enough to prevent work. Sometimes there is no treatment for the condition and the insurance company will use that to deny on the basis of not meeting the treatment requirements in the policy.

To establish a disability claim, it is important to provide comprehensive medical documentation that establishes the extent of the disability and its impact on daily activities and work. Insufficient documentation may lead to a claim being denied.

If there are conflicting medical opinions or a lack of agreement among healthcare providers, it can be difficult to establish a clear diagnosis and demonstrate the extent of the disability.

Insurance companies may deny claims if they suspect that an individual is exaggerating their symptoms or is not truthful about their condition. Again, no one chooses to be disabled, have no income, and be in litigation with an insurance company, unless they have no other option.

If an individual has a pre-existing neurological condition, insurance companies may argue that the disability is related to the pre-existing condition and not a new disability. It’s not easy, but we can prove that the pre-existing condition is not the same as the disabling condition.

It is important for individuals with neurological conditions to work closely with their medical providers and contact us to help ensure that they have the best chance of successfully claiming disability benefits. If the claim is denied, it is important to contact us right away to discuss options for disputing the denial.
