Diabetes is a condition in which the body is unable to regulate blood sugar. Type 2 Diabetes—sometimes called “adult onset diabetes”—is considered to be presumptively service-connected for disability compensation for veterans exposed to Agent Orange. Agent Orange was a defoliant used primarily in Viet Nam to clear the jungle. Exposure to Agent Orange causes a number of health conditions in veterans. Due to the association between exposure to Agent Orange and the development of a number of medical conditions, the Veterans Administration created regulations which establish a presumptive service-connection. That is, a veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange and is later diagnosed with diabetes is presumed to have a service connected disability, no matter when the condition first appears. In addition, the veteran may be eligible for compensation for a number of conditions that are judged as secondary to Type 2 diabetes such as diabetic neuropathy, coronary artery disease, hypertension and a list of other conditions. These conditions are all eligible for benefits starting when the disease first occurs. For the most part the VA does not attempt to prove that the diabetes was caused by some other condition. The amount of compensation a veteran receives under the rating schedule for diabetes varies based on the severity of the symptoms and whether the diabetes is manageable by a restricted diet or if insulin or other medication is necessary. To be awarded a 100 percent rating requires episodes of ketoacidosis requiring multiple hospitalizations per year and additional complications. For most Viet Nam veterans, the fight is not whether their diabetes is as a result of exposure to Agent Orange, the fight is over the VA’s rating of their disability from diabetes. We can review your rating decision and medical records to determine if the proper rating was made. In addition, we can determine whether you are entitled to additional compensation for conditions secondary to the type 2 diabetes.

http://www.disabilitydenials.com/diabetes-disability.html In this video Marc Whitehead, a Board Certified Disability Attorney, explains how you prove your diabetes qualifies you for disability benefits. Millions of Americans are affected by Diabetes, disability claims filed by those who live with this disease are often denied benefits even though the claimants are truly no longer able to work. For a person with diabetes, their body can't regulate their Blood Glucose (Blood Sugar). Insulin is the main hormone used by the body to regulate sugar. A Diabetics body cannot make enough insulin or can't process the insulin produced by the pancreas. Diabetes is a major cause of disability because it effects the entire body. It is identified with many serious complications and disabling symptoms. Disabling chronic conditions may develop, such as -Kidney Failure -Cardiovascular disease -Damage to the retina Diabetes can also experience poor healing of wounds and gang green in the feet which may led to feet amputation. People with diabetes also frequently suffer from diabetic neuropathy. Disability claims for people with diabetes are routinely challenged by insurance companies, The Social Security Administration, and The Department of Veterans Affairs. If this has been your experience, it may be time to seek legal help in order to prove you are indeed disabled. Social Security Disability Claims Based on Diabetes: For a Social Security Disability Claim, you must prove one of two things- Your Condition meets or is equals the medical description of diabetes found in the Social Security Listing of Impairments. Diabetes is listed under Section 9.0. OR If your condition is not sever enough to meet or equal the Social Security Listing. You must prove that your condition causes significant functional limitations that disable you from working. In making this evaluation the Social Security Administration considers your age, education, work experience, and your Residual Functional Capacity. Social Security recently changed the requirements in their listings for Section 9.0. The Section now states that you need to meet or equal a listing by showing that diabetes effects a specific area of your body, the SSA then evaluates the effected body system. In other words instead of being found disabled under Section 9.0 for diabetes, you must also refer to other specific listings. For example: Hyperglycemia can cause long term complications that effects various body systems. The SSA evaluates these conditions under the effected body systems cardiac arrhythmia, intestinal necrosis, cerebral edema, and other move disorders. With proper preparation and skilled legal representation many with diabetes disability claims that are first denied by the SSA can be approved by the Administrative Law Judge when the Hearing comes. Veterans Disability Based Diabetes: The Department of Veterans Affairs Presumes that specific disabilities diagnosed in certain veterans were caused by their military service. For Vietnam Veterans, Type 2 Diabetes has been associated with exposure to Agent Orange and is required to be at least 10% disabling under the VA's rating regulations. Basic requirements must be met including, -A medical diagnosis of diabetes -Evidence of service in Vietnam The VA the refers to the schedule of rating disabilities when determining the level of the veterans Service Connected Disability. Diabetes is listed under the Endocrine System and is rated according to the loss of function and the effect on your ability to be employed. If the VA denied you because they said your diabetes disability is not service connected, it existed before service, or it isn't sever enough. You need to consult with qualified legal counsel. Long Term Disability Insurance Claims Based on Diabetes: If your Diabetes claim was rejected by you insurance company, what do you do now? Abundant court cases will attest that insurance companies are notorious for denying valid disability insurance claims. Our attorneys routinely work with complicated medical facts surrounding Diabetes Disability and communicate with treating doctors and experts, and challenge insurance companies physicians and other experts who seek to further their own interests.

Social Security recognizes that diabetes can disable you from all competitive work. However, it is not enough that you have been diagnosed with diabetes - instead, you have to show that you experience frequent and severe complications from your diagnosis such that you would not be reliable or able to function at even a simple, entry-level job. In this video I explain how I approach claims involving diabetes. Obviously there are some cases where my client’s blood sugar has been so out of control for months or years that permanent neurological damage has occurred. Those cases are often approved. But there are many other cases where my client’s diabetes has not reached disabling severity yet my client’s symptoms can still help win a claim. If you have been diagnosed with either Type I or Type II diabetes and you are finding it more and more difficult to perform the duties of a full time job, you may qualify for disability under Social Security’s rules.

Most military personnel at some point during their service are exposed to a high level of noise. Because noise-related hearing loss can be caused by exposure to loud noises over an extended period of time or by a sudden, unexpected loud noise, many veterans suffer from hearing loss disability. If you're a vet whose hearing loss or ringing in the ears--known as tinnitus--began or was aggravated during your service in the military, you may qualify for disability benefits from the VA. How Military Service-Related Hearing Loss Occurs Any noise over 85 decibels is considered damaging. If you're exposed to that level of noise, you can experience hearing loss when the nerve endings or tiny hair cells within the ear are damaged or have died. Most often, this hearing loss can't be reversed. Military personnel experience noise exposure quite often. Some of the loudest environments for service men and women include duty on the flight line, serving in the infantry or working around naval ship engine rooms, aircraft carriers, and artillery. Those in combat are often exposed to auditory trauma for long periods of time. Hundreds of thousands of veterans who served in Afghanistan and Iraq suffered hearing loss related to their military service, especially those caught by roadside bombs. The explosions cause extreme change in the air pressure and this can fracture bones in the ear and rupture the eardrum. Veterans who apply for VA disability for their hearing loss must show a service connection in three ways. You must provide evidence that you have a diagnosis of hearing loss. You must prove with medical evidence that the hearing loss occurred or was aggravated during your military service . And you must prove that there is a link between the disability you have today and an event that took place during your military service. Our VA Disability Attorneys Can Help You Get the Benefits You've Earned If you were exposed to high levels of auditory trauma while you were in the military and have developed some type of hearing loss, contact us Cuddigan Law for a free evaluation of your situation. We can help determine if you're eligible for VA disability benefits.

After you have filed your appeal at the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, you can still follow your case. After the court receives your notice of appeal, the court will create a docket card online (https://efiling.uscourts.cavc.gov/cmecf/servlet/TransportRoom?servlet=CaseSearch.jsp). You can always go to the docket card online to see the status of your appeal. The Court will issue a "notice of docket" instructing the VA to file a copy of the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA) decision and to send to you a copy of your VA claims file. The VA has 60 days to respond to the "notice of docket." This is a period of time when nothing will happen in your case. While the BVA decision is often provided quickly, it may take a full 60 days for the VA to provide your VA claims file and mail it to you. The copy of your VA claims file will be called the "record before the agency (RBA)." When you get the RBA, you have 14 days to go through it, and see if there are documents missing or documents that might be partially blurred. While your attorney will be able to assist you, you must review your VA claims file because you are the only one who has lived the life reflected in those papers. It's important to keep the RBA papers in order, because they are numbered. The RBA is the key to your case. You cannot add documents after the RBA is produced. Once the 14-day RBA period has passed, the court will give you and your attorney 60 days to file a brief. This provides the legal basis for what you think the court should do, and it will include the RBA documents that you and your attorney feel are helpful and support your case. It should be noted that even if you do not have an attorney, an informal brief can be filed by a veteran without legal representation, and your case can still go forward. After the brief is filed, the VA gets 60 days to write its brief, which presents the VA position on your case and why it was denied. If necessary, you will get 14 days to respond to the VA's brief. Then the central legal staff of the Court will prepare a compilation of all of the briefs and the documents referred to in those briefs, called the Record of Proceedings. The Record of Proceedings is given to the judge. Then the case is considered to be "in chambers." The case may be "in chambers" for a few weeks or up to a year. During this time period, you will again have to wait and there is nothing you can do to speed up your case. The Court could reverse the board decision, which is extremely rare. It's more likely the Court will remand the appeal, or affirm the board decision. If the case is remanded, it will be returned to the VA. This means the Court believes that the VA made a mistake and wants the VA to "do it right." A remand gives the veteran an opportunity to submit additional evidence. If the Court affirms the board decision, it means the case is over at the Court. You may still file an appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, even with an affirmation of the board decision by the Court, if you want to do so.

http://www.disabilitydenials.com/cancer-disability.html In this video Marc Whitehead, a Board Certified Disability Attorney, explains how you can qualify for disability benefits with a diagnosis of cancer. Social Security Disability Cancer Claims: The Social Security Administration views Cancer as a long term disability, when it's expected to last 12 months or longer or has been found to be inoperable and terminal. When cancer responds to treatment a patient may be considered able to go back to work within 12 months. The Social Security Listings of Impairments, also referred to as The Blue Book, lists their medical requirements for cancer under listing 13.0. All Cancers are further divided into 27 different sections, each with a specific and technical description of the SSA's threshold of disability for that particular type of cancer. Cancer also results in serious secondary conditions, such as: - Fatigue - Depression Many cancers are listed on the SSA list of Compassionate Allowances conditions. This allowance allows claims to be fast tracked for benefits for claimants whose medical conditions are so sever that it is evident that their illness meets the disability standard. How can Social Security deny claims for Cancer Disability? Although Cancer is recognized as a sever impairment, we've seen many initial claims for cancer benefits denied. If the cancer is discovered at an early stage the SSA may inaccurately decide that treatment will lead to remission, side effects of treatment may not have been considered. Many first claims are incomplete, without sufficient objective evidence for the SSA to justify an award of benefits. A critical part of Cancer disability claims is to show the SSA that you are in fact unable to work at your past job or at any other job according to their vocational guidelines. Don't give up on your claim. For the best chance of winning benefits under the Social Security Disability Program keep appealing and get an experienced attorney on your side. Veterans Disability Cancer Claims: Under the Veterans Disability system the VA decision maker will look to the VA rating schedule to asses the level of your service connected disability. Cancer disability is rated according to the loss of function it has caused and the effect on your ability to work. Veterans may have been exposed to substances such as Agent Orange and Radiation that are known to cause cancer. Many of these Veterans were exposed to these agents several decades ago and are now at an age where cancer may develop. If a Vietnam veteran suffers from a list of impairments the VA will presume that the Cancer disability was caused by exposure to Agent Orange. In addition, Veterans exposed to Radiation from atomic weapons, fall-out and nuclear reactors have presumptive conditions. There are 21 different types of Cancers related to exposure to radiation. Long Term Disability Insurance Cancer Claims: Long Term Disability Insurance is offered by employers as benefits packages to employees or sold by insurance companies to individuals. Although insurance providers say they'll pay Long Term Disability Benefits if you are unable to work, many will deny valid claims, minimize payments, or find ways to delay payments hoping you will give up and abandon your claim. Reasons in support of Long Term Disability Cancers claims include: - Cancer Treatment - Side-Effects from Medication - Invasive Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments All of which can leave the patient seriously fatigued and sick. As well as the effect of their cognitive function such as memory, focus and inability to absorb and analyze information. Insurance Companies will challenge this saying that the patient is exaggerating or not giving their maximum effort. If your insurer has denied your Cancer disability claim don't give up. A court of law may view the insurance companies denial much differently when all of the facts are raised and properly presented. An experienced disability insurance lawyer representing your claim can make a huge difference when fighting against a large insurance company.

http://www.dailyrxnews.com/ A new study from the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) and the VA Center for Clinical Management Research found that veterans with type 2 diabetes who kept their blood sugar levels under control also lowered their risk for heart attack, stroke, heart failure and amputation. "Taken together with findings from other large studies, we see that controlling blood sugar in [type 2 diabetes] can indeed decrease cardiovascular risk...," said lead study author Rodney Hayward, MD, of the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System and UMHS, in a press release. "This finding reinforces the importance of combining good blood sugar control with control of other cardiovascular risk factors for a combined effect." In type 2 diabetes, the body's cells do not properly use insulin — the hormone that regulates blood sugar (blood glucose). In type 1 diabetes, the body produces little or no insulin at all. Dr. Hayward and team looked at more than 1,700 veterans who had type 2 diabetes over a 10-year period. These patients were randomly divided into two groups. One group received therapy to keep blood sugar under strict control for a 6-year period. The other group received only routine medical care. Patients in the therapy group were given four medications: metformin, a statin, a blood pressure medication and aspirin. Metformin (brand name Glucophage) is a drug that helps control blood sugar. Statins (brand names Crestor, Lipitor, Pravachol and Zocor) are used to lower cholesterol. Aspirin helps to keep the blood from clotting, which may lower the risk of heart attack and stroke. Blood sugar levels are measured with a laboratory test called hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). Patients who don't have diabetes usually have an HbA1c of less than 5.7 percent. An HbA1c of 6.5 percent or above indicates diabetes. Dr. Hayward and team found that patients who kept their average HbA1c even at about 8 percent, were able to lower their risk of heart attack, stroke, heart failure and amputation by 17 percent. Blood sugar control may be within most patients' reach, according to Barry Sears, PhD, author of "The Zone Diet" and president of the Inflammation Research Foundation in Marblehead, MA.

Social Security’s listings covering endocrine systems disorders has been changed to make it mor difficult to qualify. In 2011, SSA changed Listing 9.0 to eliminate listing level consideration for endocrine system disorders like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, pituitary glad disorders, parathyroid gland disorders and adrenal glad disorders like Cushing Syndrome or Addison Disease. As I discuss in this video, SSA made this change because they believe that these endocrine system diseases can be treated and managed. This change is explained at Social Security ruling 14-3p which you can read at https://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/rulings/di/01/SSR2014-03-di-01.html Currently the only endocrine system disorder that continues to exist at listing level is diabetes, meaning that you can still win disability for out of control Type I or Type II diabetes. This change to this listing does not mean that you will lose your disability case if you suffer from thyroid, adrenal or other glandular problems. You can still win by proving that your disease leaves you without the capacity to reliably perform an entry-level job. But the task is more difficult than it was prior to this change and you are unlikely to win early. ===============FREE SURVIVAL KIT==================== Don’t know where to begin?

http://www.disabilitydenials.com/blog/proving-neuropathy-long-term-disability-claim-erisa/ In this video Marc Whitehead, Board Certified Disability Insurance Attorney, discusses how to prove diabetic neuropathy qualifies you for Disability Insurance benefits. Almost 26 million children and adults have Type II Diabetics according to the American Diabetes Association and many of these people also suffer from peripheral neuropathy as a result of diabetes related nerve damage. Neuropathy may become increasingly more server over time causing pain, numbness and weakness in the hands, feet and other parts of the body and eventually compromise an individuals ability to work and complete normal daily activities. If neuropathy makes it impossible for you to continue completing your normal functions of your job, you will likely need to apply for Disability Benefits and prove that this disability is legitimately preventing you from working. The following forms of documentation will help you prove your case and receive the benefits that you need to support yourself. 1- Medical Records: The most obvious evidence that you will need is your complete medical history including a neurologist diagnosis or your peripheral neuropathy based on nerve testings such as MRI's, nerve biopsies, Blood tests, nerve conduction tests or spinal tap. 2- Documentation of Treatment: Presenting an initial diagnosis of Peripheral Neuropathy is generally not enough in a long term Disability Case. You need to prove that you have continued the recommended treatment. If you can't prove that you've received regular treatment from a neurologist or other medical provider, your claim may be denied. In order to prove that you can no longer work in the capacity that you used to you need to prove that your Neuropathy hinders your completion of basic day to day activities. The most straight forward way to do this is by tracking how long it takes you to do certain tasks and what type of pain and other symptoms you experience while completing these daily activities. Things such as showering, dressing and completing household chores. If you write all of this down in an activity log, you can use that log as evidence. Finally get a written statement from a Neurologist. To make your claim even stronger you should have your Neurologist write and sign a detailed statement stating the symptoms you experience, how those symptoms are disabling you and what they recommend for your course of treatment.

We owe them more." - The Honorable Kimberly Moore ** Read the FULL BLOG POST here: https://cck-law.com/news/cck-live-recent-federal-circuit-rulings-and-their-impact-on-veterans-law/ Feel free to ask questions, give us feedback, or request new veterans' law topics below!

The VA assumes that certain diseases, cancers, and other health problems are likely caused by exposure to Agent Orange. These are considered presumptive diseases, meaning that if one of these conditions is diagnosed in a veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange, the veteran can qualify for disability benefits without the burden of proving the condition was caused by military service.

Can you win Social Security #disability benefits if your primary medical problem is Type II diabetes? As I discuss in this video, Type II #diabetes is very common and Social Security judges see this diagnosis in many claims. My experience has been that if your diabetes is controlled by medications you will need something else. However, if your high blood sugar requires injectable insulin to control, and if your A1C and other levels indicate that your diabetes is not being controlled despite increasing dosages of insulin and medications, your case gets stronger. If you experience numbness and tingling (neuropathy) or vision loss (retinopathy), your case will be stronger. Often we can build a winning case if your #diabetesmellitus is under sub-optimal control, you have permanent nerve damage or vision loss, and you have another significant medical condition. Even if you are diligent measuring your blood levels and fully compliant with your medications, complications from diabetes can create long term health problems that will help support an argument that you no longer have the capacity for competitive work. #diabetesandsocialsecuritydisability #ssdiwinningstrategies #socialsecuritydisabilityhearing #atlantasocialsecuritydisability #georgiassdi ===============FREE SURVIVAL KIT==================== Don’t know where to begin?

WINONA W. ZIMBERLIN IS ACCREDITED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS You've served our country. Now you're disabled. Fighting the VA can be a daunting prospect. Claims can take years to navigate through the system. The two major VA disability benefits are service- connected compensation and needs based, non- service connected pension. For service connected disability, a veteran is entitled to compensation for disabilities incurred in or aggravated during active military, naval or air service. When a claim is made, the VA will make three decisions: 1. Whether disability is service connected 2. The percentage of disability -- from 0% to 100% 3. The effective date. This is the date from which benefits are paid; usually the date of the claim or back to the day after discharge After a veteran makes a claim to the VA Regional Office, the Regional Office will make a decision. If you disagree with the VA's decision, that can be appealed to the Board of Veteran's Appeals, and then to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. This wasn't always the case; before the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims was created in 1988 a veteran could not go to court at all. Until recently, a veteran could not retain an attorney for the early stages of a claim; the veteran was required to wait until a final decision was reached by the Board of Veteran's Appeals. A recent law changed that. Now, a veteran can hire an attorney after a Notice of Disagreement is filed, as long as the Notice of Disagreement is filed after June 22, 2007. This means that an attorney can be hired earlier in the process, before a Board decision. Hiring an attorney before a Board decision can prevent mistakes which could lead to an unfair denial.
