Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos and Newlin Disability Lawyers
  • Estimates show there are more than 2 million Americans suffering from epilepsy. In one-third of those cases, there is no effective treatment, leaving victims to suffer uncontrollable disruptions of electrical signals traveling between neurons in the brain.

    Many epileptics are unable to work due of their medical conditions, but assistance is available through Social Security Disability that can act as a source of income. However, there are several standards that epilepsy disability cases must meet to qualify for benefits.

    First, patients must be undergoing treatment for their seizures. The Social Security Administration says there must be an “ongoing relationship” between patients and the doctors treating them that shows a history of actively attempting to control the seizures. Furthermore,  doctors must thoroughly document their efforts with notes and testing of the patient’s anti-convulsant blood levels.

    Other than blood level testing, SSA policies are very broad in outlining what information is needed from doctors in order for epilepsy disability claims to be approved. That’s why it’s important to have a Social Security Disability lawyer by your side if you’re seeking benefits from the SSA.

    At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we can examine your case to clarify what documentation is needed for your claim. Call us anytime to discuss your case.
