Articles on Ataxia Disability Claims
Ataxia is a rare medical condition usually caused by damage to the cerebellum, which causes an afflicted individual to experience a lack of muscle control or coordination of voluntary movements. Simple, everyday activities — such as grasping objects, walking, reaching, gesturing, bending and speaking — can become difficult or impossible for persons suffering from ataxia.
If the symptoms of your ataxia are so severe that you are unable to work, you may qualify for disability benefits through your group disability insurance policy, the Social Security Administration, or VA. In the articles below, the ataxia disability benefits lawyers from Marc Whitehead & Associates discuss this rare condition and how to go about applying for disability benefits for ataxia.
