Renal Failure Disability Claims Lawyers
Helping Claimants with Kidney Failure Recover Benefits Nationwide
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), kidney diseases are the 9th leading cause of death in the United States. Not all patients with kidney disease progress to kidney failure, but if your kidneys fail, you will need treatment to replace the functions your kidneys perform.
Whether you decide to treat renal failure with dialysis or a kidney transplant, you will need to take some time off work and make significant lifestyle changes. If you have disability insurance through your employer or a private policy, short-term and long-term disability benefits can help you adjust. If you need help recovering these benefits, Dabdoub Law Firm is here for you.
We have been helping clients like you recover disability benefits from their insurance companies for more than 20 years. Whether you need to submit a claim, appeal a denial, or sue your insurance company in federal court, you can get started with a FREE CONSULTATION.

About Renal Failure
Renal failure and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) are the formal terms for kidney failure, a condition that affects more than 661,000 people nationwide. Because kidneys keep your body clean by removing excess fluid, minerals, and wastes – and create hormones that benefit your blood and bones – you will need treatment if your kidneys fail.
While some people chose dialysis or a kidney transplant, these treatments have considerable drawbacks, and other patients receive ongoing care from their healthcare team, take medicines, and monitor their diet and lifestyle choices.
No matter how you choose to treat it, kidney failure can impact your life in numerous ways. Kidney failure is often associated with other medical conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, autoimmune diseases like lupus, genetic diseases such as polycystic kidney disease, nephrotic syndrome, and urinary tract problems. Acute renal failure – or kidneys that stop working within 2 days – is associated with heart attacks, drug abuse, and problems with blood flow.
Symptoms of kidney failure include:
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
- Weight loss
- Muscle cramps
- Joint pain and stiffness
- Swelling in your legs, feet, and ankles
- Trouble catching your breath
- Trouble sleeping
- Confusion, trouble focusing, or memory problems
- Too much or not enough urine (pee)
In acute renal failure, you may also experience abdominal pain, back pain, diarrhea, nosebleeds, a fever, and a rash. If you notice any of the symptoms listed above, you should contact your doctor right away.
Many people find it difficult to work with dialysis appointments in the middle of the day and the ongoing, debilitating symptoms of renal failure. While your employer cannot legally fire you because of kidney dialysis or a kidney transplant, disability benefits can help you if you need to take a step back from work or do not feel able to perform the duties of your occupation.
If you’re having trouble recovering those benefits, you know where to find us.
