Offering Assistance In Gathering Proper Evidence
The liver is a complex organ that serves many vital functions in the body. When a person’s liver is compromised by toxins or disease, the damage can be severe and irreversible. Liver disease is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. and one of most common disability claims.
Yet a high percentage of people diagnosed with chronic liver disease are turned down for Social Security Disability or long-term disability insurance. Despite the devastating health effects, many of those claims are denied for lack of proper medical evidence. At Abromson & Carey, Attorneys at Law, in Newark, New Jersey, we excel at the medical aspects of disability claims in fighting for clients’ rightful benefits.

SSDI And SSI Claims For Chronic Liver Disease
Chronic liver disease takes many forms, but SSDI or SSI claims typically fall into three categories:
- Cirrhosis — Permanent scarring of liver tissues from long-term exposure to medications, poisons, excessive alcohol and other toxins that exceed the organ’s capacity
- Hepatitis C — A chronic viral infection contracted through transfusions, intravenous drug use, sexual activity, body piercings and any other blood contact
- AIDS/HIV — Accelerated liver damage in those with compromised immune systems, especially with an underlying hepatitis C or B infection
Qualifying for disability benefits for liver disease requires specific medical evidence. Attorney Glenn Carey has handled thousands of disability cases since 1985, including claims for chronic liver disease. He is knowledgeable about the Social Security Administration’s criteria and the supporting documentation needed to win claims, hearings or appeals.
Beyond a diagnosis of liver disease or being placed on a liver transplant waiting list, our legal team works to supplement claims regarding treatment and the disabling effects of liver damage: weight loss, nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, muscle aches, fatigue and/or depression.
