Disability Benefits For Cancer

The law office of David Dopkin, Attorney at Law, has assisted more than 3,500 individuals throughout Texas with Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims since 1991. Our lawyers knows exactly what it takes to prove to the Social Security Administration that cancer or another serious health condition makes it impossible for you to work.

We handle cases involving all types of cancer, including but not limited to:

  • Lung cancer: This type of cancer often starts off without any visible symptoms. As it progresses, however, patients may develop chronic coughs, back or chest pain, difficulty swallowing, fatigue, weakness and respiratory infections.
  • Brain tumors: Cancer in the brain can result in many disabling symptoms, including nausea, seizures, headaches and double vision.
  • Leukemia: This cancer of the blood cells can result in an array of symptoms, some of which may include easy bruising, headaches, night sweats, joint pain, enlarged spleen, frequent infections, weakness, weight loss and fatigue.
  • Lymphomas: Both Hodgkin lymphoma and B-cell lymphoma share many common symptoms. One of the most telltale symptoms is enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, armpit, groin, abdomen or chest. Fatigue, night sweats, weight loss and itchy skin are also common.

The Treatment Itself Can Be Disabling

In some cases, the treatment you must undergo is just as disabling as the cancer itself. Radiation, chemotherapy and surgery can have side effects of their own that prevent you from holding a job. We will take this into account when presenting your case.
