Decreased liver function can leave you feeling weak, fatigued, and unable to work. If you suffer from chronic liver disease, including hepatitis or cirrhosis, and are no longer able to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
Generally when filing for Social Security disability due to liver disease the main issue the Social Security Administration (SSA) looks at is whether or not your disease has progressed to the point where you are unable to work. Your doctor will play a key role in obtaining disability benefits, but so will your medical record. Social Security will also attempt to determine whether or not substance abuse is a contributing factor to your liver disease. We’ve often faced these issues. At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we will thoroughly review your file, talk with you about your medical history and help you gather all the medical records necessary to build a strong case for your liver disease disability benefits case. We can also obtain statements from physicians that have treated you to further help your claim.
We always stand up for our clients. SSD claims can be stressful; we have in-depth knowledge of the Social Security Disability process, and we will deal with the government for you. We know you have enough to worry about.
