Bipolar Disorder Attorney
Disability Attorneys Representing Victims of Bipolar Disorder
Due to the disturbance in mood and dramatic swings that come with bipolar disorder, many victims are unable to function at work. If your bipolar disorder is preventing you from earning more than $1,000 per month for at least a year, you may be eligible for disability benefits.
At Midwest Disability, we are dedicated to helping people who are unable to work as a result of bipolar disorder. Our attorneys provide a variety of services, including preparing initial applications and fighting to protect our clients’ rights in administrative hearings and appeals. We have even argued disability issues before the United States Supreme Court.
The Effects of Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder affects people in different ways, with some cases more severe than others. Some of the common symptoms are dramatic mood swings in which euphoric or depressed moods can come and go rapidly. When a victim is receiving treatment and still unable to function normally at work due to depressive or manic symptoms, they can qualify for disability benefits.
Honesty Is the Best Policy
While thorough medical evidence and documentation will be key in proving your need for disability benefits, it is critical to be completely honest with your doctor about the symptoms you are suffering from. Our advice is to be upfront about how these symptoms affect you and to follow through on your doctor’s orders regarding future care, treatment, referrals and prescriptions.
