Neurological disorders can make doing even the simplest tasks a challenge. For many people, they can also result in an inability to work. Some of these include epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, traumatic brain injury and neuropathy (sudden, severe pain and numbness in your limbs).
Not all conditions are caused by physical trauma. A common cause of serious neurological disorders is workplace exposure to chemicals, including solvents, glues and epoxies.
Social Security Disability benefits are available to people needing disability benefits for neurological disorders with qualifying conditions, but navigating the application and appeals process can be a daunting prospect for people who may be struggling to simply manage their day-to-day pain. Fortunately, people in Oregon, Washington and throughout the Pacific Northwest have an experienced disability benefits lawyer and dedicated legal ally in JP Law, PC.
Portland lawyers Melissa Kenney and Lisa Porter have spent years obtaining valuable experience in the area of SSD and SSI law — it is our firm's exclusive area of practice — and we work to make the disability benefits application process as smooth as possible for our clients, allowing them to focus on their health and well-being.
Determining SSDI Eligibility For Your Condition
Depending on your condition and the symptoms you present, we may be able to establish that your condition meets the criteria for one of the impairments listed by the SSA. If not, our Portland disability benefits lawyer will build an extensive file to show how your condition — and any other related ones — has resulted in you being unable to work.
