Crohn’s Disease Disability Claims Attorneys Representing Policyholders Nationwide
At Disability Insurance Law Group, our Florida and nationwide attorneys know that, according to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract.
According to the National Institutes of Health, studies show that Crohn’s disease has become more common in the United States. Researchers estimate that more than half a million people in the U.S. have Crohn’s disease.
Unfortunately, living with this chronic illness means spending substantial time and resources managing its physical and emotional symptoms, which can be stressful and overwhelming and prevents many from performing full-time jobs.
When these individuals have disability insurance, it becomes a lifeline for obtaining expensive medication and affording other expenses that could place them in substantial financial difficulty without the coverage. When insurers deny their claims, it is a devastating response to a distressing medical condition.
Our national disability insurance attorneys believe that no matter where you work or live in the U.S. if you have disability insurance, you should be able to access the benefits associated with your coverage when Crohn’s disease keeps you from working. Our Florida and Nationwide disability insurance claims attorneys want to help ensure that is true.

When is Crohn’s Disease Considered an Impairment?
Crohn’s disease symptoms can be so severe that they keep sufferers from leaving their homes. This can significantly impair their ability to work — even remotely.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes tissue swelling in the digestive tract, leading to painful and debilitating side effects, including:
- Abdominal pain and cramping.
- Anal fissure.
- Blood in the stool.
- Blot clots.
- Bone fractures.
- Bowel obstruction.
- Gallbladder disease.
- High blood pressure.
- Inflammation of skin, eyes, and joints.
- Inflammation of the liver or bile ducts.
- Iron deficiency.
- Kidney stones.
- Liver disease.
- Mouth sores.
- Pain or drainage near or around the anus due to inflammation from a tunnel into the skin (fistula).
- Reduced appetite and weight loss.
- Skin disorders.
Certain Crohn’s disease drugs act by blocking functions of the immune system, increasing the risk of infection. They also have a slight chance of developing lymphoma and skin cancers. In addition, people living with Crohn’s disease are at a much higher risk of Colon cancer.
There’s no known cure for Crohn’s disease. When the symptoms become debilitating, it can make working in any industry or position more than a challenge — but unachievable.
