A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney can help you to determine if the medical condition you have will make you eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. There are many different kinds of conditions that can entitle you to benefits, including some neurological conditions.
Can You Get Disability Benefits for a Neurological Condition?
Whether you can get disability benefits for a neurological condition or not will depend upon a few factors. First, the question is whether your condition is listed in the Blue Book, or Listing of Impairments prepared by the Social Security Administration.
If it is listed, you'll have to prove you have the condition and associated symptoms. If it's not, you will need to demonstrate the condition you have is medically equivalent in severity to the listed condition and causes you to be unable to work at any job for which you're qualified.
Neurological conditions that may qualify you for disability benefits, provided you have required symptoms, are listed in section 11.00 of the Blue Book. Some examples of listed conditions include epilepsy, vascular insult to the brain, and benign brain tumors, among others.
If your condition is listed, or if you think your condition is as severe as those listed, and you need help applying for Social Security Disability benefits or appealing a denial of benefits, you should give us a call today to find out how a disability benefits lawyer in Los Angeles can help you to make your claim and maximize the chances of getting disability income from the Social Security Administration.
