Alabama Disability Lawyer Cullman Cancer

Alabama Disability Lawyer Cullman Cancer

If you or a loved one lives in Cullman or anywhere in Cullman County Alabama,* and you suffer from some form of cancer, you may have been shocked, perhaps even angered, if your initial application for Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI) or SSI benefits was denied, but don't give up-contact an experienced Alabama Disability Lawyer.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that nearly 12 million Americans with a history of cancer were alive in January 2008; this number crosses all socio-economic lines and age categories and the diagnoses that you have cancer can lead to anxiety and depression.

Not only can cancer, in and of itself, be disabling at times, but the side effects of your treatment can be disabling as well, as can depression and anxiety. In applying for Social Security Disability benefits, it is important to list all the ways the cancer is effecting you.

In certain cases, the diagnoses in and of itself entitles the person applying for SSDI or SSI benefits (eg. Acute leukemia; esophageal cancer; gallbladder cancer; liver cancer; Mucosal Malignant Melanoma; Small Cell Lung Cancer; adrenal cancer with distant metastases or inoperable, unresectable or recurrent; bladder cancer with distant metastases or inoperable or unresectable; bone cancer with distant metastases or inoperable or unresectable; breast cancer with distant metastases or inoperable or unrescectable; etc).

In most other forms of cancer, you must be able to show that your condition, along with everything associated with your disease, prevents you from being able to perform the jobs you have done in the last 15 years and prevents you from engaging full time in other types of jobs after taking into account your age, education and past work experience.

Being diagnosed with cancer is devastating enough; you don't have to go through the process of obtaining you Social Security Disability benefits of SSI benefits alone. If you suffer from cancer and have questions about your appeal, the experienced Alabama Disability lawyers at would be happy to speak with you to try to answer your questions or help with your appeal.  Contact us today.
