Getting Social Security Disability Benefits When You Have Crohn’s Disease

October 14, 2014

If you have Crohn’s Disease or any similar conditions, winning your Social Security Disability claim can be challenging. At Nash Disability Law, we’ve heard clients say, “I don’t look sick, but there is no way I can hold down a full time job when I am in the bathroom all day. How can I get Social Security to understand that?”

If you suffer from Crohn’s Disease, Colitis or similar conditions, let us help. We’ve successfully represented hundreds of clients these conditions. You may think discussing these problems is difficult and embarrassing especially when you have to open up about them to strangers or in front of a judge. We‘ll give you the personal attention you deserve to get the right evidence in front of the right person, at the right time.

Recently, disability attorney Dan Rosen of our office represented a client at a hearing who was diagnosed with severe gastrointestinal problems, including pelvic floor dysfunction with chronic constipation. Dan worked hard to get the right evidence in the case, including a detailed explanation from the client’s doctor describing her need to use the bathroom for several hours each day in order to move her bowels.

Dan argued her case in front of the judge and explained why she can’t work full-time, based not only on the facts of her case, but also on his knowledge of the Social Security laws and regulations. Social Security even had a doctor at the hearing, who testified that Dan’s client’s problems may not be as bad as she claimed. Dan was able to question this doctor and convince the judge that his client cannot work. Dan ended up winning her case and she will now receive monthly benefits to help improve her quality of life.
