Birmingham Disability Lawyer Listing 11.02 and 11.03

In many of our Social Security Blogs we have discussed various Listings found in the Code of Federal Regulations which spell out in some specifics what symptoms a person applying for disability must exhibit in order to obtain disability benefits for certain impairments. Over the next few blog entries, we thought we would list specific listings word for word for you to review. We hope this is beneficial to you.

The next impairment we will list is found in Listing 11.02 and 11.03, which deal with epilepsy and seizure disorders.
