Endometriosis and Disability Claims
What is Endometriosis & How is it Diagnosed?
Endometriosis affects women. It occurs when the endometrium, the uterus lining, grows outside of the uterus. In most cases, the endometrium will grow in the fallopian tubes, pelvis, and ovaries.
The endometrium will thicken and is shed like blood, just like during a period. The problem arises since the tissue outside of the uterus doesn’t leave the body, causing adhesion of organs and the development of scar tissue.
Endometriosis and Extreme Pain
Women who have endometriosis will usually experience extreme pain during their periods. The problem tends to worsen over time, forcing people to stop working and likely claiming long-term disability.
Ottawa Disability Lawyers works closely with clients suffering from endometriosis to help them dispute a termination or denial of a long-term disability claim. Most people end up stopping work since treatment can only help lessen the pain but not completely cure endometriosis.
We help our clients get all the required medical documentation to provide to their disability insurance provider for faster approval or reinstatement of the long-term benefits.
Ottawa Disability Lawyers have an excellent track record in helping clients who have long-term disability disputes. The pain associated with endometriosis can be debilitating; we accommodate the needs of our clients the best way we can.
Contact Ottawa Disability Lawyers if you have a terminated or denied long-term disability claim for endometriosis.
