Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA Epilepsy

Alabama Disability Attorney VESTAVIA HILLS: Epilepsy, also known as seizure disorder, is a neurological condition which affects the nervous system. It is usually diagnosed after a person has had at least two seizures which were not caused by some known medical condition like extremely low blood sugar or alcohol withdrawal. The seizures in epilepsy may be related to a traumatic brain injury or to a congenital defect, but most often the cause of the seizures is unknown. Generally, epilepsy is not curable, but for many people it is manageable with medical care; for those whose seizure disorder is not manageable with medical treatment, Social Security Disability benefits may be appropriate.

Persons suffering from a seizure disorder who are unable to perform their past relevant jobs may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits if their medical records reflect that (i) they are suffering a specified number of attacks within a certain time period specified by law and that (ii) these episodes occur despite the person's full compliance with prescribed medical treatment. Usually a person's physician asks them to keep a diary of when they suffer these episodes; documentation of these attacks is vital for your treatment and claim for disability benefits. Failure to comply with reasonable medical treatment which could return you to work activities can disqualify you from receiving disability benefits and could lead to serious consequences, so be sure to follow your physician's directives.

Many times when we represent people who suffer from epilepsy/seizure disorder, we have a family member appear at court to testify as to the frequency of the attacks and the attacks manifestations as the person who is suffering may not recall them, so you may want someone to come with you to explain your condition when you meet with an Alabama Disability Attorney lawyer.
