Was it an end of the year quota or a Christmas present? Unfortunately, probably neither.
I represent a 54 year old nursing assistant who suffered a stroke also known as a vascular accident. One common symptom of stroke is difficulty speaking. The claimant’s stroke was so severe that she suffered a complete loss of the ability to speak, amongst other symptoms.
There is a listing that provides a person is disabled if they have “ineffective speech.” If simply having ineffective speech means a person is disabled, then having no speech at all is an disability determination.
