Complex Regional Pain Syndrome: Orlando CRPS Disability Claims

Some medical conditions are unusual and cause claims representatives difficulty in assessing the claim because they do not understand the medical condition, especially a medical condition that does not fit neatly into all of the boxes insurance companies create. CRPS is one of these conditions. That’s why we’re here to help with Orlando CRPS disability claims.

There is a “knee-jerk” reaction for Orlando CRPS disability claims to be denied because of the claim representative’s ignorance of the significant short and long term disability which can be caused by CRPS. Insurance companies try to deny these claims because of the self-reported nature of the widespread pain caused by CRPS. They routinely ignore the associated complaints of pain even though case law specifically disallows this approach. The insurance companies routinely ignore the diagnostic testing which can assist your doctor in treating the condition.

Typically, there is an array of medical conditions which combine to render a claimant disabled. Such conditions are chronic fatigue syndrome, myofascial pain syndrome, sleep disorders, memory problems and related arthralgias. Insurance companies will try to parse out and discount each one by one rather than look at the total effect.

Of import in this regard is any policy language which attempts to limit your benefit entitlement due to CRPS or other conditions which insurance companies suggest are based solely on subjective complaints. This is rather ludicrous because the insurance company willingly took your premium money and now are questioning your honesty.
