Disability for Neurological Disorders

If you’re living with a neurological disorder and are interested in applying for benefits, contact our Social Security disability attorney in Knoxville, TN today.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) uses their Blue Book to help determine whether your disability is severe enough to qualify for social security disability benefits.

What Neurological Disorders Qualify?

Currently, there are sixteen neurological conditions that are listed in the SSA’s Blue Book. Included in the list are:

  • Brain Tumors
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Cerebral Trauma
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Parkinsonian Syndrome
  • Anterior Poliomyelitis
  • Lesions of the Spinal Cord or Nerve Roots
  • Central Nervous System Vascular Accidents
  • Sub-Acute Combined Cord Degeneration
  • Syringomyelia
  • Peripheral Neuropathies
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Other Degenerative Diseases

Just because a condition isn’t listed in the Book doesn’t mean they won’t evaluate your case and approve your claim. The application process is confusing and it is recommended that you hire a disability lawyer in Knoxville to help you with your case.

The experienced attorneys at Drozdowski & Rabin have years of experience and can help you file for disability, and get approved. Contact us today for your free case evaluation.

How the Process Works

If you are suffering from a neurological disorder that has left you unable to work or earn a liveable income, you may qualify for disability benefits.

The application process is very detail-oriented. It’s important that you have all of your information and paperwork in order to keep things moving and get approved. Supporting evidence and documentation is needed to back up your claim and provide the SSA with sufficient proof that your disability is severe enough to qualify for benefits.

Once you understand how the process works, it’s less likely that you will make common errors that typically delay the process and prevent you from receiving the benefits you deserve.

You will be asked to supply medical evidence to support your claim and prove your neurological condition. The greater details you provide, the better chances you have of being approved.

Keep all your paperwork from all medical providers in order. Every detail matters. Keep contact information and all dates you received treatment.
