A few years ago, I was in an accident and became partially paralyzed. I've been denied disability because of my AGE. Yes, that it what the case worker told me after "fighting" my claim. They have "doctors" on staff who "read" the medical evidence to make a judgment on my condition. After appealing my case, It turns out that they do not even my my last surgery on file, yet still made their decision because of my AGE!!! (apparently, if you are under 54, it is tough luck!!!)
So, has anyone been through this process? Did you hire a lawyer? I cannot afford one, but am getting doors closed in my face by the government. Medical bills piling up, and I can't claim my disability! Any suggestions????
