Breast cancer is not a common disease associated with disability, and in fact, most of the debilitating factors related to breast cancer originate more from the treatment rather than the condition itself. This often leads to disability claims being unfairly denied or unnecessarily delayed.

To improve your chances at filing a successful disability claim you should first seek the help of a New York disability lawyer. Experienced lawyers will have worked on many cases similar to yours and know the right resources to explore in developing your claim.

Having good documentation of your medical history, past and current treatment, prognosis, and projected care is also important to your disability claim. The Social Security Administration will be looking to see that your disability is caused by your breast cancer and treatments, and that it prevents you from doing substantial gainful activity.

Your doctor should be able to provide you and/or your attorney with the diagnosis, lab and test results, treatment analysis, and long-term prognosis. They can also help you verify the cause of symptoms such as fatigue and chronic pain as a result of chemotherapy treatment or mastectomy.
