Epilepsy Disability Claims Attorneys Representing Policyholders Throughout the U.S.
At Disability Insurance Law Group, our Florida and nationwide attorneys know, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, epilepsy is a disorder of the brain characterized by repeated seizures. A seizure is usually defined as a sudden alteration of behavior due to a temporary change in the brain’s electrical functioning.
According to the Epilepsy Foundation, epilepsy affects three million people in the U.S. Epileptic seizures may be tied to brain injury or genetics. Still, for 70% of epilepsy patients, the cause is unknown.
The unknown aspect of epilepsy can lead to confusion when it is time for those living with the condition to pursue disability claims when they cannot work. Without a clear “cause” that policyholders are suffering from an illness or injury, insurance companies often deny epilepsy disability claims quickly, leaving workers nationwide struggling to support themselves.
Our national disability insurance attorneys help individuals with epilepsy prove they qualify for disability benefits by showing that their medical conditions prevent them from performing full-time jobs — no matter where they live or work in the U.S.
