Multiple Sclerosis Cognitive Dysfunction & Disability Insurance Claims

In addition to the very obvious physical symptoms of multiple sclerosis, such as loss of muscle function, problems with walking, vision disturbances, tremors, etc., there is a more debilitating symptom that often goes unnoticed – that of cognitive dysfunction.  This is separate and apart from the symptoms of fatigue and depression which also plague the MS patient.

Common Disabling Conditions of Cognitive Dysfunction

All of these non-physical impairments are not easily observable but have the most detrimental affect on being able to function at a job and/or profession.  Frequently these dysfunctions are overlooked by insurance companies when assessing a claim for disability.

We at Stennett & Casino are aware of these pitfalls and have helped many clients suffering from multiple sclerosis secure disability benefits emphasizing how these cognitive deficits preclude a client from carrying out the duties of even a sedentary job.
