Alabama Disability Lawyer Chelsea Epidermolysis Bullosa

If you live in Chelsea, Alabama or anywhere in Shelby County, Alabama* and you have recently been denied Social Security Disability benefits or SSI benefits related to a condition known as epidermolysis bullosa, you are understandably upset, but don't give up -contact an experienced Alabama Disability Lawyer.

Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare genetic disease characterized by the presence of extremely fragile skin and recurrent blister formation, resulting from minor mechanical friction or trauma (there is no cure for EB) is one of the skin conditions which could entitle a person to social security disability benefits. Persons who suffer from EB suffer periodic outbreaks of blisters-which can become quite large-all over the body. These outbreaks are painful and can cause the sufferer some apprehenive about going out in public. We have had clients in the past who have lost jobs because customers where they worked were scared to have them handle things they might come in contact with out of fear that the condition is contagious; it is not. It is not uncommon for persons suffering from EB to also have suffered with bouts of depression and anxiety.

Listing 8.00 of the Code of Federal Regulations sets forth the factors of certain skin disorders (such as exfoliative dermatitis, ichthyosis, pemphigus, erythema multiforme bullosum, deep mycotic infections, epidermolysis bullosa, psoriasis, etc) which would entitle a person who suffers from these skin disorders to social security disability benefits.
