Kidney failure affects nearly every part of the body and is when the kidneys, which process chemicals in the blood begin to fail. This means that the person who is suffering from kidney failure begins to have toxic blood. The only treatment for this right now is dialysis and eventual transplant, which makes kidney failure a very difficult problem for the patients who are suffering from it. This has many different causes, some of which include:

  • Acute Tubular Necrosis
  • Autoimmune Kidney Disease
  • Decreased blood flow (Low Blood Pressure)
  • Hemolytic-uremic Syndrome
  • Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Thrombotic Purpura (ITTP)
  • Malignant Hypertension
  • Reaction to Transfusion

If you or a loved one has this disease and it is affecting your life so severely that your doctor tells you that you should not return to work, contact an experienced RI Social Security Disability attorney right away. An experienced Social Security attorney in Rhode Island can help you to make important life decisions and can ease the stress of the application process to the Social Security Administration. Nearly 75 percent of all first time applicants for Social Security Disability are denied benefits. This denial is generally not because the disability is not worthy of benefits, but rather because the paperwork was not what the Social Security Administration was looking for.

medical record for person with Kidney FailureWhen looking to approve or deny a claim for Disability benefits, the Social Security Administration relies heavily on the medical record provided to them as well as the opinion of the treating physician. It is important to have an attorney look these papers over in order to be sure that they accurately reflect the pain that you are experiencing. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney can ensure that you put the best claim forward for benefits that you have and can also reduce the stress of compiling and reading all of the information yourself. Dealing with the symptoms of kidney failure can be stressful and a competent and experienced RI Social Security Disability attorney can ease the stress and pain of fighting for your right to Social Security Disability compensation. An experienced RI Social Security Disability attorney can also ensure that the Social Security Administration is aware of the extent of your disability and your inability to work.
