Often, Atlanta disability benefits lawyers come across persons who suffer from symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, and want to know if they are eligible for Social Security disability benefits.
Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disease, which means that the symptoms get progressively worse over a period of time. The most commonly known symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are tremors and shaking, but there are a number of other symptoms that can also worsen as the disease progresses. For Instance, the person may suffer from muscular stiffness, difficulty in coordination, difficultly balancing, slow movements, and slurred speech. As the disease progresses, the person may even suffer from dementia.
The symptoms may seem minor during the beginning stages of the disease, but will get progressively worse, and can dramatically impact the person’s ability to earn an income.
