Hepatitis Social Security Disability Claims
Hepatitis A, B, and C are viral infections that together affect an estimated 5% to 6% of Americans. Most people with hepatitis B or hepatitis C lead normal healthy lives. However, some people infected with hepatitis develop serious liver disease that severely affects their quality of life, including an inability to work.
If you are unable to work due to your hepatitis B or hepatitis C, you may be able to work with Binder & Binder® to file a successful hepatitis disability claim for early payment of monthly Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
Your Medical Record
If the SSA approves you for disability benefits, it does so by reviewing the information found in your medical record. For this reason, it is important that your medical records thoroughly document your condition and/or disability. Hepatitis can often present subjective symptoms, so physicians and other treating health professionals are frequently asked by the SSA to submit reports about your impairment. Medical reports for your hepatitis disability claim should include:
- Medical history
- Clinical findings
- Laboratory findings
- Treatment prescribed with response and prognosis
- A statement from your doctor providing an opinion about your ability to perform work-related activities, such as sitting, standing, walking, carrying, lifting, handling objects, etc.
When helping you apply for Social Security Disability insurance (SSDI) or benefits, the Social Security Disability Attorneys at Binder & Binder® gather a full listing of your treatment sources, dates of treatment, names of doctors and the medical conditions with which you have been diagnosed. We know exactly what is needed, and what will greatly benefit your hepatitis disability claim.
