Neuropathy Disability Insurance Attorneys
Handling Neuropathy Claims Nationwide
According to Cleveland Clinic: “Neuropathy is damage or dysfunction of one or more nerves that typically results in numbness, tingling, muscle weakness and pain in the affected area.” The condition is most common in the hands and feet and affects many people nationwide. In fact, 25 to 30% of Americans will be affected by neuropathy in their lifetimes.
Diabetes is the most common cause of neuropathy, but other health conditions, treatments, and medications can inspire this type of neurological problem. No matter where it comes from, neuropathy interrupts the communication between your brain and other parts of your body. Experiencing pain, weakness, or numbness in your extremities can make it difficult to do your job, especially in occupations that require heavy physical activity or precision. A surgeon with neuropathy, for example, may be unable to perform their job properly.
When neuropathy prevents you from maintaining gainful employment, Dabdoub Law Firm can help. If you are covered by disability insurance, via your workplace or a private plan, we can help you file a claim for short-term disability (STD) or long-term disability (LTD) insurance benefits.
Everyone suffering from a condition like neuropathy deserves an opportunity to focus on their health and treatment, and no one should have to suffer through chronic pain or discomfort at work.

Neuropathy is often referred to as peripheral neuropathy because it affects the peripheral nerves and nervous system. The peripheral nerves carry information to and from the brain, and peripheral neuropathy occurs when those nerves are damaged or destroyed. Neuropathy can affect one nerve (mononeuropathy) or nerve type, a combination of nerves (multifocal neuropathy), or nerves throughout the body (polyneuropathy). Overall, there are more than 100 different types of neuropathies.
Symptoms of neuropathy include:
- Tingling or “pins and needles”
- Weakness in the affected area
- Muscle twitching, cramps, and/or spasms
- Muscle paralysis or loss of muscle control
- Sharp, lightening-like pain
- Burning, throbbing, or stabbing pain
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Inability to feel pain, pressure, temperature, or touch
- Changes in sensation
- Falling and loss of coordination
- Low blood pressure or abnormal heart rate
- Dizziness when standing up, fainting, or lightheadedness
- Sweating too much or not enough in relation to the temperature
- Problems with urination, digestion, and bowels
- Unintentional weight loss
- Problems with sexual function
Most people experience the symptoms of neuropathy in their hands and feet, but sensations can spread to the arms and legs and throughout the body. Some people develop these symptoms slowly, while others experience them all at once. Sometimes, neuropathy gets worse over time. If the symptoms of neuropathy are unbearable and prevent you from working, Dabdoub Law Firm can help.
