Social Security Representation For People With Mesothelioma

A mesothelioma diagnosis marks a turning point. Everything must change. The focus turns to fighting the disease and preserving a quality of life. For many, this is the time they first investigate obtaining Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

Compensation options for work-related asbestos exposure diseases

Mesothelioma  and other pleural diseases associated with occupational asbestos-exposure often takes years to develop. Once diagnosed, individuals are often left scrambling for help; the average life expectancy for individuals with mesothelioma is twelve months.

Maximizing benefits for terminally ill SSDI and SSD clients

Terminal illnesses are often debilitating, forcing dying individuals to drop out of the workforce to fight their disease in hopes of maximizing whatever time is left. Often, these individuals will pursue a Social Security Disability claim in hopes of minimizing the impact of the lost wage.

Advising clients who are terminally ill

Estate planning is often new territory for individuals diagnosed with a terminal illness. According to Caring.com, only 42 percent of Americans have a will. For clients diagnosed with mesothelioma or some other form of cancer, this may be the first time they have thought about meeting with an estate planner.

Diagnosis Mesothelioma: How to tell a patient they are dying

Giving bad news is never easy. Telling someone that they are terminally ill is exceptionally challenging. A study in the Journal of Oncology Practice revealed that delivering end of life news to patients is one of the most stressful parts of their jobs as oncologists. Remarkably, training in how to effectively communicate with patients and protocols as to what to cover is largely absent.
