The Social Security Administration (SSA) often denies many disability benefit claims based upon seizures. Thus, when making an application for Social Security Disability benefits, it is of the utmost importance to ensure that you have proper medical documentation of your disability. If you suffer from grand mal or major motor seizures, or if you suffer from petit mal or minor motor seizures, you must have medical evidence documenting the frequency and severity of the seizures. The SSA will also deny disability benefits applications if the applicant fails to follow a prescribed treatment or is drinking alcohol. The SSA will check blood tests to determine the levels of any anti-seizure medications you have been prescribed, as well as blood alcohol levels. If you are still having employment difficulties following treatment, our attorney can help walk you through the application and appeals process for Social Security disability benefits.
