Chronic pain occurs in the following ways:
The condition can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to prove to employers and insurers. Chances are you’re experiencing other side effects including fatigue, trouble sleeping, a weakened immune system, and changes in mood. You may find yourself resting or sleeping more than usual, while finding that your pain has not abated by the time you wake up. We understand your frustration in having to deal with these health problems in addition to talking to unsympathetic representatives from your insurance company.
Even after finding a doctor who supports your claim, the medical documentation may not prove convincing enough, and you may not be entitle to the full extent of benefits available to you. You may be subjected to endless medical assessments; each delaying your claim’s filing, as well as being frustrating and discouraging.
We can offer you peace of mind as we have decades of experience filling out the countless forms, talking to the insurance company, and understanding where we can make the most of insurance policies.
