Getting Social Security for Invokana-Related Conditions
Invokana is associated with a number of serious ailments. Many of them make you eligible for Social Security disability benefits. Our Social Security disability attorneys can help you file a claim, gather the required supporting documentation, and get approved for disability.
One disability linked to the drug is amputation. Many patients who took Invokana for diabetes needed to have limbs amputated. If you lost a limb due to Invokana, you may be eligible for Social Security disability if your amputation prevents you from being gainfully employed.

- Loss of both hands
- Loss of one or both legs above the ankle, and an inability to wear a prosthetic
- Loss of one hand and one leg above the ankle
- Hip disarticulation
If you do not meet a Blue Book listing, we can still help you get approved for disability by showing that your condition prevents you from working and carrying out daily living activities. Call the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod & Baril, PLLC at 866-628-8179 for a free consultation.
