Hepatitis Disability Claims

Disability claims for hepatitis can be problematic because of the nature of the disease. Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, and there are several different types. It can be caused by a virus, but it can also be caused by the abuse of drugs and/or alcohol. Hepatitis can progress over time to fibrosis (scarring), cirrhosis or liver cancer. There are five main viral types of hepatitis, known as A, B, C, D and E.

If you have received a hepatitis diagnosis, you may be wondering if you should continue working given the infectious nature of the disease. You can spread hepatitis C even if you have no symptoms. Many people who have hepatitis C do not know they are sick, as they don’t have any symptoms. But hepatitis C is a serious disease that results in long-term health problems, including liver damage, liver failure, liver cancer and death.

This is about a Social Security Disability claim.

Frankel & Newfield has worked with clients who have hepatitis. The success of a disability claim does depend upon the severity of the symptoms. It is important to remember that a diagnosis of hepatitis alone is not enough to qualify for a long-term disability claim. You’ll have to demonstrate that you are unable to perform the tasks and duties of your occupation. Medical reports from your treating physician will be very important to the success of your claim. The disability insurance company will not be in a hurry to approve your claim.

Hepatitis claimants are able to focus more on taking care of themselves instead of battling with the disability insurance companies when they work with our law firm. Call us today at 1-877-LTD-CLAIM (1-877-583-2524) to find out how we help people with hepatitis and their disability insurance claims.
