Peripheral Neuropathy


Bartolic Law handles Long Term Disability cases at all stages, from filing a claim to lawsuits under ERISA § 502(a). We are who the most discerning clients hire when an insurer denies their claim, and the one they wish they had when another firm loses their appeal and abandons the case. We are Innovative, Authentic, Compassionate, Transparent and Chicago strong. Bartolic Law is nationally renowned for our Innovative work:

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition in which damaged nerves cause pain, weakness, and numbness in the affected area of the body.
While it is most common in the hands and feet, it can occur in any nerves outside of the brain or spine. In addition to impacting your quality of life, it can also impact you on the job.
Symptoms like muscle weakness, extreme sensitivity, and sharp, jabbing pains could make routine job-related tasks impossible, and a long-term disability claim might be your only option.

Success With Peripheral Neuropathy LTD Cases

We understand how peripheral neuropathy affects your work. We helped a client maintain disability benefits due to peripheral neuropathy after undergoing aggressive cancer treatment. Though our client was no longer disabled due to cancer, the treatment was so aggressive that it resulted in severe peripheral neuropathy, making the client unable to work as an executive.

The insurer had a difficult time understanding that although the claim began due to cancer, it was the damage to nerves done by the treatment that left the client permanently disabled, despite successfully beating cancer.

One of the challenges associated with peripheral neuropathy concerns the ability to document it properly because patients are often impacted differently depending on which nerves are damaged. Peripheral neuropathy disability claims are frequently denied by insurers for failure to provide supporting evidence of the severity of the condition.

Documentation required by insurers often includes medical records detailing your symptoms and how they have progressed. They may also require a firm diagnosis from your doctor and results from diagnostic testing, records regarding treatments and follow-up care, and statements from yourself, your co-workers, and your family regarding the impacts peripheral neuropathy has on your life.


If your peripheral neuropathy is making it difficult to work, don’t wait to contact an attorney.
