For The Rights Of Inured Workers

Skilled Disability Attorneys Representing Clients With Skin Disorders

Depending on the severity of the condition, skin disorders can create such pain and discomfort that they make living a normal life nearly impossible. If your skin condition is such that you are not able to hold a regular job, you may be entitled to collect Social Security Disability benefits. There are specific criteria that need to be met in these cases, and an experienced New York attorney can help to ensure that you receive fair treatment under the law.

At Dennis Kenny Law, we represent clients in all types of complex Social Security Disability claims. We have a complete understanding of the law in these cases, and we know what the Social Security Administration (SSA) looks for when it evaluates a claim. We work diligently to see that you receive the benefits you need.

Helping You Through A Complex Process

One of the most difficult aspects of disability claims for skin disorders is their sometimes seasonal nature. Under the law, your condition must be expected to last 12 consecutive months. If your condition subsides for just one month out of the year, it could jeopardize your benefits. We will take the time to help you understand the law regarding your case and fully explain your legal options.

Some of the skin disorders that may be classified as disabling by Social Security include:

  • Ichthyosis
  • Skin lesions
  • Hidradenitis suppurativa
  • Chronic infections of the skin or mucous membranes
  • Bullous disease
  • Genetic photosensitivity disorders
  • Dermatitis
  • Severe burns
