The Sullivan Law Office focuses on the fact that every application for social security benefits is unique to the individual. The Sullivan Law Office may provide valuable assistance during the long and sometimes stressful gathering of personal information and medical evidence involved in the application process. Applicants should understand every necessary detail before they file an application and the Social Security Administration (SSA) determines eligibility. The assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable disability attorney may, therefore, be crucial to the approval of an application for disability benefits.

At times, eating competitions may be dangerous to the participants. A patron recently sued a San Mateo, California restaurant after he fell into a two-week coma and suffered a severe tear in his esophagus after eating the establishment’s unique “ghost pepper burger.”

The lawsuit alleges that the restaurant failed to warn the customer about the ghost pepper burger’s extreme spiciness. Under an actual standardized rating system for spiciness, Ghost peppers are rated at approximately 1,000,000 units, while a jalapeño pepper is rated at approximately 5,000 units!

After eating the ghost pepper burger, the customer ran from the restaurant vomiting, which doctors believe caused the hole in his esophagus from the body’s natural reaction to release the ghost pepper.

In evaluating disorders of the digestive system, Social Security considers disorders including gastrointestinal hemorrhage, hepatic (liver) dysfunction, inflammatory bowel disease, short bowel syndrome, and malnutrition. These disorders may also lead to complications, i.e., obstruction, or be accompanied by manifestations in other body systems.
