Social Security Disability Attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq. can represent individuals seeking Social Security Disability benefits, who suffer from a broad range of neurological disabilities. A neurological disability stems from a trauma, disorder or disease of the human nervous system. Following are some of the typical neurological disabilities considered by the Social Security Administration for SSD benefits:
- Epilepsy - Individuals with this disorder suffer from seizures, which vary in frequency and severity. Sometimes a severe seizure will involve aura, tongue bites, lack of sphincter control and postictal phenomena.
- Brain Tumors - A malignant brain tumor may result in paralysis, tremor or other involuntary movements, ataxia and sensory disturbances.
- Multiples Sclerosis - This genetic disorder results in muscle weakness or other significant disorganization of motor function. Extreme fatigue and loss of visual acuity are also symptoms of this disease.
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Commonly called "Lou Gehrig's Disease", this rare genetic disorder is nearly always fatal and totally destroys the motor cells in the spinal cord and brain stem.
- Myasthenia Gravis typically is contracted by women. It is a fairly rare disorder of the immune system that blocks transmission of impulses from nerve endings to muscle fibers.
- Traumatic Brain Injury - Unfortunately, this is becoming more common among Combat Veterans, who may sustain non-impact brain injury from the blast wave of improvised explosive devises.
