A transplant of any kind can result in debilitating side effects and medical conditions that can last a lifetime. With a liver transplant, you might experience an acute bile duct complication or have to deal with the pain of a leaking bile duct.
Excessive bleeding at inopportune times, as well as failure of the donated liver to work flawlessly can keep you out of the workforce indefinitely. An acute infection and mental seizures are also adverse side effects associated with the aftermath of a liver transplant.
Several studies have released data that demonstrate there is a 25% chance of a worker 20 years of age becoming disabled at some point before he or she reaches retirement age. This startling statistic makes it important for workers to understand the disability rights granted by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA offers a booklet that provides useful information that pertains to everything about Social Security Disability benefits.
To receive what you deserve for a disability covered under the Social Security Act, you should contact a state licensed Social Security attorney who specializes in helping clients receive what they deserve under the Social Security Act.
It Starts with Submitting an Accurate Application
Receiving disability compensation from the SSA requires a certified physician to diagnose a medical condition that prevents you from working for at least 12 months. When you reach the 12-month mark, you are eligible to submit an application to receive Social Security Disability benefits.
Make sure to complete every section of the application accurately. An online application will ensure you submit a completed application because the software used to operate the application system will alert you to missing information and the submission of inaccurate data.
Medical documents must accompany the Social Security Disability application. The most important medical document is the confirmation of your condition, as well as confirmation that the medical condition prevents you from making a living.
You need to submit the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the caseworkers, hospitals, and physicians that have interacted with you during the diagnostic and treatment phases. The copy of the document submitted by your doctor should include detailed information concerning your symptoms and how the symptoms make it impossible for you to work.
Make sure to include any prescription drugs you have taken. Every cost associated with your medical condition should be listed in the Social Security Disability application.
Proving the existence for a debilitating medical condition is just part of the process for submitting a Social Security Disability application. You also need to support any claim made within the application about how much money you have lost because of the disability.
Employment records, especially documents that provide evidence of what you earned per year, should accompany the medical documents you submit with a Social Security Disability application. Attaching the most recent W2 form also provides the SSA with evidence of your earning power.
Work with a Licensed Social Security Attorney
Interacting with the SSA can lead to an incredible amount of frustration. The SSA is often overwhelmed with claims, which leads to delays in processing Social Security Disability applications. When you work with an experienced Social Security lawyer, you let the SSA know that you are serious about receiving compensation for a debilitating injury or disease.
