What Causes Epilepsy Disability in New York?

The symptoms of epilepsy can vary greatly between individuals, and the causes of epilepsy disability in New York vary greatly as well. Some people are born with epilepsy or a seizure disorder, and some people develop epilepsy later in life. Some of the common causes of epilepsy include: 

  • Injury to the brain at birth
  • Abnormalities in the brain or blood vessels
  • Alzheimer's disease and dementia
  • Stroke
  • Bacterial and viral infections, such as meningitis, abscesses, or AIDS 
  • Some metabolic disorders
  • Tumor affecting the head or brain
  • Destruction of brain tissue due to another disorder/illness. 

As you can see, it can be very difficult to pin down the cause of epilepsy in you or a loved one, which is a part of why so many medical tests and procedures are required when you are evaluated for epilepsy disability.

They kept my best interests at heart. Updates on a regular basis of the status of the case and returning of calls was much more prompt after I started dealing with the same lawyers and support team.
