Disability Benefits for Hepatitis
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from Hepatitis?
Hepatitis is a condition that causes inflammation of the liver. This may be caused by a viral infection, drug or alcohol use, or sexual contact. Most cases of Hepatitis appear in the form of hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. Hepatitis may cause symptoms such as jaundice, dark urine, extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, pale bowel movements, and loss of appetite. Hepatitis can lead to cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), and can progress into cancer.
Social Security looks at how hepatitis affects your maximum physical ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your hepatitis, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will also assess any further limitations that your hepatitis might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.
