Potential Issues for Teachers
Whether you teach preschool, middle school math, or high school chemistry, working in the education system can be physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting. Teachers are expected to stand for long hours lecturing, oftentimes bending over student desks to oversee classwork and assist with problems. Additionally, teachers usually move their own equipment, carry papers and homework to and from the classroom. Any back or neck injuries could make this type of work extremely painful, as could certain arm or leg maladies.
If you suffer from any injury or illness that prevents you from performing the duties required of your teaching position, our firm may be able to help you acquire the long-term disability benefits you are entitled to.
Conditions Educators May Experience
Degenerative disc disease is likely one of the most prominent health issues teachers may deal with. An individual suffering from degenerative disc disease will typically show symptoms of chronic back or neck pain. This discomfort is caused by wear and tear on the spinal discs that cushion the vertebrae. It can also cause shooting pain through arms or legs and may increase with motion and stress to the affected areas. Other serious health scares that may require a teacher to file for disability include other chronic spinal problems, heart conditions, cancer, or certain mental or emotional disorders.
If you are suffering from any illness or injury that prevents you from working, you may have a disability insurance claim. Our attorneys can review your case and determine whether or not you could be eligible to receive long-term disability benefits.
