CNC Machinist Finds Himself Disabled and Unable to Work

From CNC Machinist to Disabled

Jeffrey was a computer numerical control (CNC) machinist for numerous years. He worked with heavy machinery to produce parts and tools from metals, plastics and other materials. Over the years, he started noticing tingling and numbness in his hands, which later down the road resulted in more difficulty using his limbs. 


As his condition worsened, Jeffrey decided to see a doctor. He was diagnosed with polyneuropathy along with diabetic ulcers. “It was a slow process, over a 15-20 year period where my health declined to where I was unable to work,” Jeffrey said.  


When Jeffrey was working, he was spending most of his time in the hospital at the hyperbaric chamber receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy to heal his wounds. At one point in his career, he was standing for twelve hours at a time. Now, he couldn’t stand to work at all. 


Unable to work and finding disability assistance

Jeffrey knew he needed help as he was unable to work. He had been a diabetic for nearly forty years and over that time, his circulation throughout his body began to decline.


Because Jeffrey wasn’t working, he wasn’t receiving income. “I looked up disability lawyers online and Balin Law was the closest law firm to me. They specialize in disability and that was appealing,” he said. 


Partnering with Balin Law gave Jeffrey peace of mind. “Before, I was borrowing money from family members and if it weren’t for Balin Law, I’d be on the street. I knew nothing about the process. I wanted to make sure I worked with a firm who knew what they were doing.” 


Jeffrey put his trust in our firm to help him get disability benefits he was so deserving of. For individuals who are facing dire need situations, your case may be eligible to be expedited.
