Unable To Work Due To Diabetes? You Need A Lawyer.

If you are unsure about whether your diabetes is severe enough to qualify for disability benefits, consider whether you are unable to work because of your condition. If you have been working, despite your condition, you will probably not qualify because you have not demonstrated an inability to work unless you work on a very limited basis, such that it is not "substantial gainful activity" under the statute.

Serious complications stemming from Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes may demonstrate a disabling condition, including:

  • Peripheral neuropathy or limb pain
  • Eye conditions
  • Retinitis or visual impairment
  • Acidosis, uncontrolled blood sugar levels
  • Liver disease

If your diabetes is uncontrollable and you have suffered severe and persistent pain or conditions that prevent you from working, attorney Drake will help you file for SSD benefits. Marjorie Drake will help you prepare the necessary medical records to document your condition and prepare evidence that demonstrates your inability to work. Attorney Drake will help reduce your stress by taking care of the details so you can focus on your health.

Because disability benefits are usually denied the first time, you may also need skilled legal representation to contest a denied SSD benefit. Attorney Drake will prepare paperwork for appeal and aggressively present your case on appeal.
