South Texas residents come to our firm needing Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI/SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for various mental and physical disabilities. Diabetes is rampant in the area, requiring many to seek benefits because of their inability to work.At the Law Office of Kathleen L. Day, we help our fellow Texans with SSDI and SSI applications and fight to overcome the challenges involved in a complicated and frustrating bureaucratic process.
A Dedicated And Diligent South Texas Diabetes Disability Benefits Attorney
Even though illnesses and injuries are added every year, diabetes is no longer formally listed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) as a disability qualifying for benefits. Simply stated, those suffering from the debilitating illness cannot receive benefits. Government bureaucrats feel that treatment from doctors and advancement in medicine have brought diabetes under control.
Based on the clients who come to our Corpus Christi office, those bureaucrats are mistaken. The disease is rampant in the area with family histories leading to more South Texas residents suffering from the disabling illness. The SSA’s decision ignores not only the effects of diabetes, but also resulting renal atrophy, neuropathy, kidney failure, amputations and blindness.
You do not have to face the challenges on your own. Even though diabetes is not on a formal list, we will still pursue benefits on your behalf. From the initial application to the appeals process, our lawyer will establish and argue compelling and fact-based claims to get the SSDI or SSI benefits you deserve.
