We Work To Avoid Denial Of Your Claim
Most of the estimated 25 million Americans with diabetes are able to control the disease through medication and lifestyle changes and lead productive lives. Uncontrolled diabetes is another story. It can lead to nerve damage, renal failure, heart disease, amputation and other serious health problems that make it impossible to sustain employment.
Many people with Type 2 diabetes, even those with severe complications, are denied when they file Social Security Disability or long-term disability insurance claims. At the law firm of Abromson & Carey, Attorneys at Law, we know what kind of medical records and corroborating evidence are needed to win benefits in hearings and appeals. Call our office in Newark to discuss your case.
Collecting The Necessary Proof
A diagnosis of diabetes is not sufficient to qualify for SSDI or SSI disability benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires specific proof of known medical complications, such as:
- Neuropathy (nerve damage) — numbness or severe pain in the feet or hands
- Amputation of toes, feet or legs due to advanced neuropathy
- Hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease or stroke
- Retinopathy — vision impairment or blindness
- Kidney failure — End-stage kidney disease requiring dialysis or transplant
Attorney Glenn Carey has handled disability claims for 35 years, including many diabetes cases. He is knowledgeable about the SSA’s technical medical criteria regarding the diabetes diagnosis and related neuropathies. He helps clients document their treatment and symptoms and helps them obtain blood work and other specific tests and physician documentation that will support their claim in hearings and appeals of the SSDI process.
