Workers’ Compensation Claims for Diabetes Complications
Diabetes mellitus can be a qualifying impairment by itself, especially untreated or mismanaged Type 1 diabetes resulting in coma, seizures or kidney failure. Most often SSDI/SSI claims arise from complications of Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes:
- Diabetic neuropathy — Loss of sensation and swelling in the feet (“diabetic foot”) that renders walking painful or impossible, or similar neuropathy in the hands and fingers, sometimes leading to skin infections or amputation
- Diabetic retinopathy — Abnormal blood vessel growth in the retina of the eyes, resulting in vision loss or blindness
- Renal failure — Kidney damage eventually requiring dialysis or transplant
- Cardiomyopathy — Damage to heart tissues, causing irregular heartbeat or cardiac arrest
- Stroke — Vascular damage resulting in brain damage or paralysis
Our Pennsylvania diabetes injury lawyers work with clients, their families and doctors to document these conditions and how they impact our clients’ daily lives to the point of inability to sustain employment. This includes fatigue, shortness of breath, fainting, impaired mobility, difficulty concentrating, mood swings or abnormal behavior as a result of blood sugar fluctuations or the diabetes complications.
The diabetes injury attorneys on our team have a documented success rate, especially at the administrative law judge level of disability appeals. When we take a case, we are prepared to fight as long as necessary for our clients. We also coordinate other claims for long-term disability (LTD) or workers’ comp to maximize income for our clients.
