Multiple Sclerosis Flare Ups Can Make Working Almost Impossible

Lincoln, Nebraska, Multiple Sclerosis Disability Attorney

Hundreds of thousands of Americans live with multiple sclerosis (MS). Multiple sclerosis can gradually lead to severe physical and mental disabilities. Most people with MS suffer from episodes when the disease "flares up." These episodes can cause muscle weakness, coordination problems, pain and fatigue. Flare ups can last for days or even weeks. Even when a person with MS is not suffering from flare ups, MS can cause fatigue and weakness.

Many people with MS support themselves and their families for long periods of time. For many people, however, the progressive effects of the disease can make it very hard to go to work every day. If your MS has made it impossible for you to work, you have probably looked into whether or not you qualify for government benefits. Cuddigan Law, P.C., L.L.O., has helped many people with MS in Omaha, Lincoln and surrounding areas get the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits they need.

Qualifying for Multiple Sclerosis Disability

Multiple sclerosis qualifies as a disability by the Social Security Administration (SSA). However, the SSA will still need proof to show how your MS prevents you from working. We will help you document your condition. Our firm can work with your treating medical providers to describe the full extent of your limitations. We know exactly how much these disability benefits mean to you. If we accept your case, we will take all steps within the law to help you get them.
