Chicago Liver Disease Attorneys

Illinois Social Security Disability Lawyers

Liver disease refers to a variety of medical conditions that prevent the liver from functioning normally.  Liver disease may be caused by cirrhosis, hepatitis or other causes.  Without proper treatment, the liver may shut down and create a potentially lethal medical situation.

Liver disease, regardless of the kind or cause, can cause a serious impact on an individual’s life.  In some cases, a patient suffering from liver disease may be unable to engage in substantial gainful employment.  The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides social security disability benefits – either Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) – to those persons who are unable to work due to a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death.

Because the SSA creates strict guidelines for eligibility and requires specific documentation of the applicant’s disability and financial means, a skilled social security lawyer can be incredibly helpful in navigating the application process.  At Ankin Law our Chicago social security lawyers have considerable experience helping clients complete the Social Security Disability application process, including those clients suffering from liver disease and hepatitis.  Our knowledgeable SSI lawyers understand the importance of adequately documenting your medical condition, as well provide supporting information regarding income and financial resources.

Regardless of the cause, the Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluates liver disease according to section 5.00 of the Listing of Medical Impairments.  The disability review process is comprehensive and includes the review of detailed medical records and documentation of the liver disease condition.  The application review process also involves the consultation with vocational experts that will testify regarding the impact of a particular medical condition, such as liver disease, on an individual’s ability to work or maintain any residual functional capacity.

It is crucial to hire a skilled social security attorney who is familiar with the application review process, including the medical documentation and vocational testimony that will be provided, at a disability hearing.  The experienced Chicago social security attorneys at Ankin Law are well-versed with the process for reviewing social security applications in Illinois.  We have considerable experience representing clients at social security disability hearings and can question any vocational experts called to testify at the hearing.

If you or a loved one suffers from liver disease and is unable to work as a result, do not hesitate to contact the knowledgeable Chicago liver disease disability attorneys at Ankin Law at (872) 529-9377 to schedule a free consultation to discuss your social security disability claim.
