Case Studies

In this section of our vascular disease disability site, you will find several examples of  cases that experienced disability lawyers have actually tried in court.  These case studies are as close as you can get to sitting in and watching me litigate a claim in a Social Security Hearing room.

Each case study contains background information about the client and his/her disability, strategies taken to argue the case before a Judge, details regarding the actual hearing and testimonies, and case outcomes with related commentary.

We hope you find these case studies informative about disability claims arising from vascular diseases and ways in which disability claims can be handled before a Judge.  Remember, however, that all cases are different and that these case studies merely serve as examples of case strategies and outcomes. The circumstances of your claim may differ greatly from the ones of those listed here.

Additionally, please feel free to use the contact form on the right for a free case evaluation.

Vascular Disease Case Study #1: 40 year old man who developed DVT after minimally successful spine surgery. His case was also complicated by diabetes and a significant anxiety and depression history. This case resulted in a favorable decision.

DVT Case Study #2:  46 year old male with recurrent DVT flare-ups and non-healing stasis ulcer likely caused by lupus and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome.  This case resulted in a fully favorable bench decision.

Vascular Disease Case Study #3: 61 year old male with diabetes and decreased heart function.  He experiences dangerous leg swelling unless he keeps his legs elevated at least half of the day.  This case resulted in a favorable decision.
