Diabetes

If you have diabetes, you do not need anyone to tell you how difficult it can be to function in a job on a consistent basis. Perhaps your symptoms and consequences have forced you to stop working — or you are struggling to continue in your job despite physical problems that make that nearly impossible.

Whether you need help filing for Social Security Disability benefits in Ohio or you have applied and received a denial letter, our law firm can be an invaluable resource. For more than 35 years, we have been advocating for the injured and disabled and building an impressive track record of results.

A Rigorous, Strategic Approach To Obtaining Benefits For Diabetes Sufferers

Our dedicated, highly qualified attorneys have in-depth knowledge of how the Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluates applications and the evidence officials need to see to approve them. We have helped thousands of people get the benefits they deserved through our meticulous, personally attentive approach.

It is important to recognize that simply having a diagnosis of either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes will not qualify you for benefits. Evidence may be required to substantiate specific impairments that restrict your ability to perform work, such as:

  • Organ damage that may lead to kidney failure and dialysis, heart problems and other seriously disabling conditions
  • Neuropathy causing numbness and loss of muscle control
  • Retinopathy seriously affecting your vision
  • A recurring, life-threatening condition such as acidosis that sometimes requires urgent treatment to raise insulin levels

If you suffer from diabetes mellitus or any other work-ending impairment, we are here to help in every way we can. A lawyer at our firm will carefully evaluate your situation and potential or actual reasons for a claim denial. We are dedicated to preparing the most comprehensive and compelling case possible for you, supported by the right documentation and medical evidence.
