Council Bluffs SSI/SSDI Attorney: Some Disorders Are Hard to prove
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income benefits, you will have to prove that you are unable to work for 12 months or longer. The Social Security Administration will closely review your medical information in order to determine whether you qualify for benefits.
You may suffer from certain physical disorders that are very painful and restrict your ability to work. Nonetheless, certain disorders may be harder to prove, and it may be difficult to obtain the benefits you need. An experienced disability attorney can help you document your conditions and present your claim effectively. Cuddigan Law, P.C., L.L.O. has helped many people with difficult medical conditions get disability benefits. Contact us to discuss your claim.
We have helped people with very serious physical disorders such as the following:
- Lupus: Lupus can cause fatigue, making it very difficult for a person to work a full day.
- Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis can cause swelling in the joints and is very painful. This pain can make it especially difficult for people to perform their duties at work. Pain and swelling in the hands may make impossible to do any work.
- Seizures: Both grand mal or petit mal seizures can present major hardships. Medication to control seizures can make a person extremely tired or sluggish.
- Migraines: Severe migraine headaches can make it impossible for a person to function.
When we represent someone with a physical condition that is difficult to prove, we will help you develop your medical records to the fullest possible extent. We will write to your doctor and ask for the report. If necessary, we will encourage you to see your doctor. We will encourage you to document your own condition to help your doctors. For instance, if you suffer from seizures or migraines, we may ask you to keep a diary of your seizures or migraines to document how long they last and how you feel after a seizure or what you do when a migraine occurs. These documents can help your doctor give you a complete diagnosis. We will then present this information to the SSA. If necessary, we can appeal your claim to an administrative law judge (ALJ) and even federal court. We have helped thousands of people throughout eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss your condition with you.
