After a long, hard-fought battle, my client with Crohn’s Disease finally won her case that granted her benefits all the way back to October 2006. She received six and a half years’ worth of past-due disability benefits.
In her 20’s, she was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease – a devastating condition that caused her severe stomach pain, constant diarrhea, constipation, and occasional nausea and vomiting. Understandably, the intensity and unrelenting nature of her symptoms eventually led her to become severely depressed. She was originally denied mental health disability benefits by an Administrative Law Judge in 2008, but persistence paid off. After I successfully appealed her case, we went to a hearing with a different judge who fully granted her case. She is finally receiving the financial and medical assistance she so urgently needed.
