Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease and in almost all cases shortens the lifespan of the afflicted individual. If you have this disease, it is important that you understand your options and contact a Charlotte SSD lawyer.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) typically affects young children and worsens with age. Common symptoms of CF include:
CF causes the mucus in the lungs and pancreas to thicken. Permanent lung damage is all but certain.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has established listings of medical impairments that it uses to determine disability, and CF is among those listings. Unfortunately, a claimant’s medical records must reflect exactly the SSA listings criterion for CF in order for the SSA to find the claimant automatically eligible for disability benefits.
A claimant may still make a showing of disability with the proper medical documentation. A properly documented case will include:
A Charlotte SSD lawyer understands that most afflicted with CF cannot work due to the severity of the illness or the time necessary for treatments or both.
