Do you or someone you know suffer from Bell’s Palsy? The truth of the matter is that many Americans suffer from this surprisingly common condition, which is sometimes mistaken for a stroke.  Bell’s Palsy is a condition that causes paralysis, numbness, or weakness in the facial muscles. It generally is confined to one side of the face and can cause facial drooping and the inability to open the eye on that side of the face. This condition can also lead to difficulties with taste and the production of tears.  Bell’s Palsy symptoms can come on rapidly. A person can go to sleep one night feeling great and wake up the next morning feeling the frightening symptoms of Bell’s Palsy.  Bell’s Palsy symptoms include excessive tearing, dry eye, loss of taste, drooling, pain in or behind the ear, facial numbness and a sudden sensitivity to sound.  Bell’s Palsy generally heals within weeks,.  In some cases, the effects of Bell’s Palsy are permanent. 

If you are suffering from a permanent Bell’s Palsy, you may be eligible for long term disability insurance benefits.

The Law Firm of J.P. Gonzalez-Sirgo, P.A. represents individuals that have had their valid long term disability insurance benefits denied, delayed or terminated.

I am eight weeks post diagnosis of Bell's palsy. I received a note and event of treatment By my neurologistand subsequently have began to say and be treated by a specialist. I was told that the damage to my face is 75% likely to remain we are working to save the site in my eye. I have been trying to file short-term disability for the last five weeks and have not been approved even though my eye doctor has repeatedly sent letters stating that I am unable to work due to double vision Loss of depth perception dry Eye, and possible injury tocornea. Do I need to seek legal help?

I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy last week. And it's scary but is it for permanent or not? I hope not I'm taking meds for it now. Is it considered a disability if it don't go away?
