Has Neuropathy left you unable to work and carry out daily activities?
Neuropathy Disability benefits can help.
Neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy, is a common neurological disorder that affects an estimated 20 million people in the United States. It is not a single disease, but rather, a general term for disorders that result from damage to the peripheral nervous system, which transmits information from the brain and spinal cord to every part of the body.
Neuropathy occurs when nerves have been damaged or destroyed, causing them to malfunction and send bad signals. More than 100 types of peripheral neuropathy have been identified. Symptoms depend on the type of nerves that are damaged.
Some people may experience numbness, tingling or sharp stabbing pains in their feet or hands. Others may have difficulty walking or moving their arms or legs. Lack of coordination, falling and chronic pain is also common with neuropathy.
Peripheral neuropathy is often caused by diabetes. It can also be caused by HIV, infections, nutritional deficiencies, toxins, physical trauma, or genetic disorders. Regardless of the cause, peripheral neuropathy can be debilitating. Everyday tasks like writing, driving, walking and working can be extremely difficult, severely impacting your quality of life and livelihood.
If you or a loved one is suffering from neuropathy and has been (or is expected to be) out of work for at least a year, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. If approved, you would receive a monthly payment, early Medicare and, quite possibly, a significant amount of back pay. Your spouse and children may also be entitled to monthly benefits.
Unfortunately, getting approved for Neuropathy Disability is not simple. It requires an extensive amount of medical information, as well as specific details about your work history and daily activities. The process can be complicated and overwhelming, especially for individuals who are sick and stressed.
That is why so many people turn to McDonald Law Firm. Our Disability team and attorneys will handle the Social Security Disability process for you. We will evaluate your circumstances, prepare and file your Disability claim and work diligently to bring you some financial relief.
If for some reason your Disability application is denied, we will appeal your denied Disability claim and, if necessary, represent you during a Disability hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. We will be with you every step of the way, advocating and fighting for you.
How does the Social Security Administration (SSA) decide who qualifies for Neuropathy Disability benefits?
The SSA recognizes that neuropathy can be a disabling condition and, in severe cases, it will grant Neuropathy Disability benefits during the initial application stage. To get approved at the onset, you must have neuropathy that is characterized by tremors, paralysis, ataxia or involuntary movement in at least two arms or legs. These complications must make it difficult to use your hands, stand or walk — despite prescribed treatment
Don’t meet the SSA’s criteria for Neuropathy Disability benefits? Don’t fret.
Don’t be troubled if you don’t meet the SSA’s listed criteria. If you can show that your condition is so debilitating that you cannot return to your past work and are unable to transition to any other type of job, you could still be awarded Neuropathy Disability benefits.
Convincing the SSA that you can’t work at all can be challenging. Medical evidence is essential. The SSA will want to review all of your records, treatments and doctors’ notes to determine what your limitations are and whether there is any type of work you can perform.
Sound daunting? This the benefit of having an experienced Disability team in your corner. McDonald Law Firm knows what kind of evidence the SSA is looking for and how to meet their strict requirements. We take all the work — and the worry — out of the Disability process.
Denied Neuropathy Disability benefits? Don’t give up.
Receiving a denial letter can be disheartening, but don’t throw in the towel. The unfortunate truth is that most people get denied Disability benefits during the initial application stage.
Your chances for approval actually increase if you appeal a denied disability claim and enlist the services of a skilled attorney who understands Social Security Disability law. The experienced Disability lawyers at McDonald Law Firm routinely convince the government to reverse an unfavorable decision and award our clients the Disability benefits they so have earned and so desperately need.
Don’t delay, though. You only have 60 days to file an appeal after you receive your denial letter.
