Lupus Anticoagulants are a type of protein antibody called antiphospholipids. These proteins react to phospholipids, which are fat molecules in your blood cells that can stop your cells from working properly. The problem with these antiphospholipids is that they can cause blood clots in your lungs, legs, heart and brain.
We represent a 59 year old security guard with Lupus Anticoagulant from Syosset whose Social Security Disability (“SSD”) application was approved today. The claimant could not sit, stand or walk for more than 10 minutes without his legs swelling, despite being medicated with blood thinners. Consequently, the claimant has to spend as much time elevating his legs to reduce swelling, as he does sitting, standing or walking, which a vocational expert testified precluded all work.
