If your chronic kidney disease has become a disabling condition and caused you to miss work or be unable to work, our disability insurance lawyers can help you. The United States has seen a significant rise in the instances of chronic kidney disease over the past ten years. Numbers from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) indicate that nearly 17 percent of adults over 20 suffer from chronic kidney disease. We have helped numerous clients that have been disabled as result of kidney cancer, and renal failure.
These increases may be due to a number of contributing factors, such as the simultaneous rise in obesity, diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure). You may be at a higher risk for chronic kidney disease if you have any of the following diseases or conditions:
- Diabetes, type I and type II
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- Enlarged prostate
- Kidney stones
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
We have experience in dealing with disability insurance companies that are often reluctant to follow through on their own policies. We can help at any stage of your disability insurance claim, which include filing an application, appeal or lawsuit if necessary. Disability companies think that if you have one good day, then you must be able to return to work. Working and having a day where you can go to the grocery store are not similar at all. Don’t let yourself get taken advantage of by your insurance company.
Chronic Kidney Disease Can Make it Difficult to Work at Any Job
Kidney disease has the potential to damage your central nervous system; this can lead to difficulty concentrating, personality changes or seizures. It can also decrease your body’s immune response, making you more vulnerable to infection. All of these effects can make it difficult to report regularly to a job, and to perform regular job duties. Chronic kidney disease is a degenerative process and disability companies will require proof as to why a claimant can no longer work with the condition. We work with you and your doctor to make sure the proper medical support is provided. Most doctors don’t document your chart properly, which can result in a claim denial.
