Getting denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can be overwhelming. At Disability Advocates Group, our experienced SSDI attorneys understand the challenges individuals with IBS face, especially when navigating the appeals process. In this blog post, we shed light on how the expertise of a Social Security Disability attorney can significantly improve the outcomes of your SSDI or SSI appeal in Florida.

Understanding IBS and Its Impact

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder characterized by symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. IBS can significantly impact an individual’s ability to maintain employment and engage in daily activities, making it a valid basis for disability claims.

Challenges in IBS Disability Claims

  1. Subjectivity of Symptoms:
    • IBS symptoms, often subjective, can be challenging to measure objectively.
    • The Attorney’s Role: An experienced attorney assists in translating your subjective experiences into compelling legal arguments.
  2. Documentation Challenges:
    • Comprehensive documentation is crucial, but individuals may struggle to compile necessary evidence.
    • The Attorney’s Role: Attorneys ensure the gathering and presentation of compelling medical evidence to support your claim.

Why You Need a Social Security Disability Attorney for Your IBS Appeal

    • Navigating the legal intricacies of the appeals process is challenging without legal expertise.

    • The Attorney’s Role: Attorneys are well-versed in SSA criteria, ensuring that your appeal aligns with the necessary standards.
  3. Comprehensive Case Building:
    • A successful appeal demands a well-constructed case supported by extensive documentation.
    • The Attorney’s Role: Attorneys assist in building a comprehensive case, ensuring that all aspects of your IBS and its impact are effectively communicated.
