Assisting People With Genetic Conditions

As modern medicine has progressed, so has the insight into the most fundamental causes of disease. We now know that many previously misunderstood conditions are actually genetic, caused by mutations in a person’s genes, chromosomes or cellular material. These conditions manifest in a wide variety of ways, but are linked by their underlying cause. While the symptoms can be mild for some people, others have to leave the workforce altogether, cannot enter it in the first place. Social Security Disability benefits are often the only option for support.

While some attorneys hesitate to accept these cases, Nicolet Law Office, S.C. has guided many clients in Wisconsin through successful disability benefits applications. We are eager to do the same for you.

All of our fees are contingency-based. You do not pay unless—and until—we win.

A Wide Spectrum Of Conditions

Genetic conditions can result in both physical and mental impairments, sometimes simultaneously. The full list of genetic conditions is tremendously long, but some of the more common ones include:

  • Down syndrome
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Tay Sachs disease
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Certain varieties of muscular dystrophy

Is My Condition Covered By Social Security Disability?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) maintains a long list of allowable conditions, including some with genetic causes. Each of these listed conditions has a specific set of criteria their evaluators will use to determine whether or not you are eligible.

However, for conditions not listed in the SSA guidelines, there is a more general test that evaluators will use. For adults, they essentially want to know whether you can currently hold not just a previous job, but any job at all. To determine this, they will assess your ability to:

  • Retain and process information
  • Interact appropriately with others
  • Manage your time and tasks effectively
  • Engage in self-care and adapt to change

Building Your Case

A successful benefits application requires documentation from physicians and other professionals. A best practice is to document as many difficulties as possible in a way that can be medically corroborated. Our lawyers will assist with the process, as it looks different for every individual.

Increase The Chances Of Success

While Social Security Disability benefits are never guaranteed, working with an attorney can boost the probability of success by as much as fifty percent. To discuss your case or that of a loved one, please reach out to us. We are available by email, or else by phone: 715-802-0872.
