Knowledgeable Advocacy for Complex Diabetes Cases

Have the symptoms and consequences of your diabetes forced you to stop working? Or are you continuing to work despite problems that are getting progressively worse? Perhaps you have filed an application for Social Security Disability benefits only to receive a denial letter, and now do not know where to turn for help.

The Babut Law Offices, PLLC, is a proven resource for diabetic individuals and others with a vast range of disabilities. Our attorneys will look hard at your situation and analyze the reason you were denied, striving to build the strongest possible case for you to win benefits at the reconsideration phase, at a hearing before a judge, or before the Appeals Council.

Experience to Handle Complicated Cases

While the Social Security Administration includes diabetes in its listing of medical impairments, being diagnosed with diabetes does not alone satisfy disability requirements. DIB and SSI disability claims involving either Type I or Type II diabetes mellitus are evaluated in light of each sufferer’s “functional impairments and restrictions,” such as:

  • Neuropathy — involving numbness and loss of control of the arms, hands, legs and feet
  • Retinopathy — a cause of lost peripheral vision and a decrease in visual acuity
  • Recurring acidosis — a life-threatening condition calling for urgent treatment to correct the patient’s lack of insulin

Applying a wealth of experience and substantial medical knowledge, we are prepared to build your case for benefits based on a full picture of your health. We know, for example, that diabetes victims often suffer organ damage leading to kidney failure or dysfunction and the need for dialysis, cardiovascular problems and other disabling physical problems.
