Multiple Sclerosis Disability Claims Attorneys
Social Security Disability and MS Lawyer
Generally speaking, multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease that gets worse over time. If your MS symptoms are keeping 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 MS victims apply for and obtain disability benefits. Our attorneys provide a comprehensive range of services, including helping clients prepare initial applications as well as fighting to protect our clients’ interests in administrative hearings and appeals. In fact, we have even argued disability cases before the United States Supreme Court.
The Effects of MS on Workers
MS can have a number of negative effects on workers who suffer from it. It can:
- Affect concentration
- Cause memory problems
- Reduce or eliminate the ability to walk
- Reduce strength, agility and dexterity
As with other disabilities, if the effects of your MS cause you to miss more than two unscheduled days of work per month, you should be able to qualify for disability benefits as you will be considered unemployable.
Honesty Is the Best Policy
Even though you cannot win a Social Security Disability claim without the aid of convincing medical evidence and documentation, the last thing you should do is mislead your doctor about your condition. Our advice is to be completely honest about the effects of your MS and follow through on your doctor’s orders regarding future care, treatment, referrals and prescriptions.
