Meniere’s Disease Disability Claims Attorneys Representing Policyholders Nationwide
At Disability Insurance Law Group, our nationwide claims attorneys know Ménière’s disease is a rare inner ear disorder that can cause multiple debilitating effects, including:
- A feeling of pressure inside the ear.
- Severe dizziness or Vertigo.
- Ringing in the ears or Tinnitus.
- Hearing loss.
Ménière’s disease is caused by an abnormality in the labyrinth, part of the inner ear. It occurs most often in people between 40 and 60, and women are more likely to get it than men.
The cause of Ménière’s disease isn’t known, and because no single cause has been found, Ménière’s disease likely has a combination of causes.
There is no cure for Ménière’s disease. However, some treatments can help lessen the severity and duration of vertigo attacks. These treatments include medications, dietary changes, Gentamicin injections, and surgery.
The chronic nature of Ménière’s disease and its impact on daily life can contribute to stress, anxiety, and depression. These mental health challenges can further affect a person’s ability to cope with work-related stressors.
Individuals with Ménière’s disease may experience severe symptoms that can result in missed work, which can lead to challenges in maintaining regular attendance and meeting work expectations.
This is where disability insurance can make an essential difference in their lives.
When a disability insurance claim is denied, it can physically, emotionally, and financially devastate Ménière’s Disease sufferers. We want to help.

When is Ménière’s Disease Considered an Impairment?
Symptoms of Ménière’s disease may be due to extra fluid in the inner ear called endolymph, but it isn’t clear what causes this fluid to build up.
Common issues that may contribute to the build-up may include, but are not limited to:
- Poor fluid drainage may be due to a blockage or irregular ear shape.
- Autoimmune disorders.
- Viral infection.
Because treatments are not always successful, Ménière’s disease can significantly impact an individual’s ability to work due to:
Severe vertigo attacks often characterize Ménière’s disease. Vertigo can make it difficult for individuals to perform tasks that require balance and coordination, such as operating heavy machinery or driving.
The hearing loss associated with Ménière’s disease can impact communication, making it challenging for individuals to engage in meetings, conversations, or other work-related activities that rely on clear hearing.
The persistent ringing or buzzing in the ears (tinnitus) can distract and interfere with concentration, particularly in quiet work environments.
Ménière’s disease symptoms can be unpredictable and may vary in intensity. This unpredictability can make it challenging for individuals to plan their work schedules and commitments.
Coping with the symptoms of Ménière’s disease, especially during and after vertigo attacks, can be physically and emotionally draining. Fatigue may affect a person’s ability to concentrate and perform tasks efficiently.
