Chronic Impairment Claims
Downey California Chronic Fatigue & Disability Claims Lawyers
Chronic health conditions can make it impossible for you to work on a regular basis. However, it often takes an experienced Social Security Disability claim lawyer’s help to prove to the Social Security Administration that you are disabled.
At the Law Offices of Judith S. Leland, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your chronic health impairment claim. For your convenience, we have offices in Downey, Stadium Towers Plaza and Ontario in Southern California.

- Genitourinary problems including kidney disease, nephrotic syndrome and impaired renal function

When you file a Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim for a chronic impairment such as HIV, the Social Security Administration (SSA) may send you to one of their consulting doctors to evaluate you. However, everyone who has a chronic illness experiences good days and bad days. If their doctor sees you on a good day, your claim may be denied. If you receive an appointment to see a social security doctor, do not reply until you contact an SSD/SSI lawyer.
