Insurance Denial Lawyers for Endometriosis Related Disability Claims

Endometriosis is a disease of the female reproductive system that can be debilitating.  Endometriosis affects the ovaries, uterus, fallopian tubes and pelvis and occurs when tissue which normally grows inside the uterus starts to grow outside of the uterus.  The results can be incredibly debilitating.  

The exact cause of endometriosis has yet to be determined and it is most prevalently found in women aged 25-40.  As the symptoms of endometriosis widely vary in type, degree and frequency, there is no one set treatment for endometriosis.  There is often a significant amount of medical investigative treatment you must undergo to determine the severity of your endometriosis.

Symptoms of Endometriosis

Some of the symptoms of endometriosis include:

  • Inflammation
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Chronic Pain 
  • Pain Associated with Menstruation
  • Severe Abdominal Cramping
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Nausea 
  • Fatigue

Due to the fact that the cause of endometriosis has not been determined and because the symptoms often come and go, even if a person is disabled as a result of their endometriosis, insurance companies will often attempt to deny long-term disability benefits.  This is a common occurrence for conditions which are not widely known of or understood.  Supporting medical evidence from your treating medical professionals can help.
