Advising Workers Affected By Digestive Disorders
While not discussed very often due to the personal embarrassment many victims feel, digestive disorders can wreak havoc on workers, particularly those who are subject to a regimented work schedule. If a digestive disorder is making it difficult to function at work, the attorneys of Crowe & Shanahan can help you pursue your rights.
Unlike other firms that focus their practice nationally, our firm focuses on representing workers locally in St. Louis, eastern Missouri and southern Illinois. You will not be just another case file number; you will always have access to your attorney.
Digestive Disorders Do Not Wait For A Convenient Time
For workers who are expected to remain at their desk or be in a certain area until their scheduled breaks, digestive disorders can make it impossible to get their job done. A number of digestive disorders could qualify you for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, including:
- Crohn’s disease
- Nausea and vomiting
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
We will work with you and your doctor to document the symptoms of your digestive disorder so we can properly demonstrate how it is preventing you from working. In order to qualify for benefits, you must be unable to work for a continuous period of 12 months. However, it does not have to be a permanent disability. You can receive back pay for a closed period of disability.
