Moston’s neuroma long term Disability Benefits
Do you know that patients with untreated Morton’s Neuroma can develop a lifelong disability? According to the laws of United States, patients with chronic cases of this physical condition can apply for disability benefits on account on their incapability to walk and therefore, earn a living for themselves.
However, these benefits are not easily obtained. All the information regarding a patient’s medical, academic, work and vocational records are obtained and evaluated. It is important to bear in mind that benefits are not allowed on the basis of having Morton’s Neuroma, but any kind of disability caused by this disease.
To avoid any disability, you should seek the treatment for your Morton’s neuroma.
