Collecting Macular Degeneration Disability Benefits Is A Reality
Our disability insurance lawyers have fought for clients suffering from eye related disabilities since 1979. We have the experience and knowledge to give you your best shot of receiving benefits if you legitimately qualify for them. Contact us if you are considering applying for disability benefits or appealing a denied disability claim caused by macular degeneration or any other eye related condition.
People suffering from macular degeneration may not be able to continue performing their job duties. Clear central vision is necessary for a host of daily activities including reading, driving, recognizing faces and doing detail orientated work. Some disability insurance providers will deny people the benefits that they legitimately need, or try to limit them to a few months. It is essential to work with a board certified ophthalmologist that will help with your claim for disability benefits. Our disability lawyers will work very closely with you and your ophthalmologist to present the best evidence possible in support of your claim. Since Macular degeneration is degenerative condition, most disability carriers will argue that you can still continue to work with the condition since you have been working for years with the same condition. This is a pathetic argument and one that we deal with on a daily basis.
Our Disability Lawyers Understand Why Macular Degeneration is Disabling
Macular degeneration is a chronic eye disease characterized by deterioration of the macula – the tissue in the part of your eye that controls your central vision. This eye disease typically has a gradual and painless development. For example some of the early signs can be generally hazy vision, a dulling in the appearance of colors and/or difficultly seeing in low light. As the condition progresses, patients experience a significant reduction in the sharpness of their central vision, as well as a blind or blurry spot in the center of their field of vision. In some cases visual hallucinations, known as Charles Bonnet syndrome, are also present as vision loss becomes more severe. We have represented numerous doctors and computer professionals that rely on accurate vision in order to perform their duties.

Reviews from Our Clients
Very satisfied with the work of this team. Took well care of my case and took all the necessary time to be responsive and attentive when I had questions. Guided me through recovery and returning to normalcy. All thanks to Jason & Tabitha, thank you!
I’m extremely satisfied with the experience I have had with this firm from day one. The lawyer who has handled my case, Alex, is very efficient and attentive to all my questions and concerns. They are always aware of how my case has gone and they care about my health. I feel optimistic with them because they are very attentive during the process of my claim. I would not hesitate to recommend families and friends if in any situation they need their services. Kathleen as well has been very well and assisted me with this case. I highly appreciate everything they have done for me.
It’s unfortunate when disability insurance companies come after older disabled policyholders just to help their bottom line. It can be a living nightmare the damage they can do to a family. Dell Disability Lawyers are polite, understanding and knowledgeable. They call you back and answer any question you have no matter how unimportant it can be. The amount of stress they took off of myself and family was incalculable. I recommend them highly to take care of any disability case whether it be filing for benefits or reversing a claim decision. They are outstanding.
I could not have been happier or more appreciative of the hard work they performed on my behalf. I was well briefed on my case and it was closed in a timely manner with a financially successful resolution.
Mr. Symonds and Sonia as well as everyone else we have worked with throughout this process have been very helpful, professional and caring to our situation. We are very thankful to have this great team on our side.
Without them my LTD company was dropping my plan with me still suffering from my accident, even with doctor’s statements I’m still disabled. The LTD company didn’t want to advance my policy to the next stage of years of pay. Dell Disability Lawyers saved my policy, and helped to enforce the LTD company’s own policy (for its policy holder, me) that I would be covered still under the LTD policy I had paid for at my previous job, when my accident occurred. These lawyers know what they are doing and can help you too. LTD companies will try to drop you when you still need coverage just because they don’t want to pay on your policy anymore. Don’t let them break contract with ya because they are trying to get out of it. Hit em with legal action to ensure the continuation of your policy you paid for. Dell Disability worked very well for me and continue to do so.
I was denied long term disability benefits from The Hartford after being on it for years. I found Dell Disability Lawyers after doing research online. In a matter of days they responded and explained to me everything that would be done. Dell Disability Lawyers were able to settle my suit against The Hartford very quickly and responded to me quickly. I would definitely recommend this team of lawyers for anyone that is fighting for their disability insurance.
I have had nothing but a great experience with Dell Disability Law Firm. Mr. Alex Palamara and his team went above and beyond my expectations. They will respond to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Thank you once again for taking my case.
This law firm is the best so far. MetLife denied me two times, they appealed two times for me and they won of course. So if you are on disability and want a chance at winning your case use this firm Dell disability lawyers, kind courteous understanding and they get the job done. You won’t be disappointed.
