Cancer Disability Insurance Attorneys
Long-Term Disability Lawyers Here to Help You
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 9% of all Americans have been or will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. As the second most prevalent health condition behind heart disease, cancer in all of its forms debilitates or disables millions of workers every year, making it extremely difficult or impossible for them to hold gainful employment. For people living with cancer and who are covered by disability insurance provided by an employer or private-provider, they may be able to gain short-term disability insurance coverage, long-term disability insurance coverage, or both.

About Cancer & Health Conditions It Causes
Cancer is extremely difficult to understand and treat, and so it can be challenging to know just how it will debilitate an individual. Every cancer case is different from the next due to variances in the cancer’s location, its source, how rapidly it spreads, the overall health of the individual, and so forth. Specific disabilities can afflict one cancer patient but never another for this reason.
Imagine someone who has a cancerous growth in their lungs. They will struggle with manual labor due to shortness of breath, but someone with a tumor in their arm may not have a problem. For most people living with cancer, though, the greatest disabilities actually come from cancer treatments.
Whether you use chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, or radiation therapy, you can expect side effects to include:
- General weakness
- Fatigue or exhaustion
- Nausea and digestion problems
- Proclivity to serious illness
All of these issues can be persistent enough to cause chronic pain or discomfort. Completing regular job duties in such a condition and employed in any occupation can put undue stress and hardship onto you. In turn, it may allow you to seek long-term disability insurance benefits, either until your treatments end or for the rest of your life.
Taking On Insurance Companies Is What We Do Best
Disability insurance companies are notorious for trying to sidestep coverage payouts for people diagnosed with cancer, perhaps due to the fact the disease is known for its permanence. To enhance your claim and increase its chances of being accepted, let our nationwide disability and ERISA attorneys handle it from start to finish. We can also help you with responding to insurance company investigations and claim denials.
