Graves’ Disease Disability Attorneys
Handling Graves’ Disease Claims Nationwide
Graves’ disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism in the United States. As an autoimmune disorder that attacks your thyroid and its hormones, Graves’ disease can affect every organ in your body. The symptoms and complications of Graves’ disease make it difficult for many patients to maintain full-time jobs.
If you struggle with Graves’ disease and your condition is interfering with your occupation, you may have options. As long as you carry disability insurance through your employer or a private policy, you should be entitled to short-term or long-term disability benefits.
Short-term disability benefits can help you while you seek treatment and learn how to manage your condition, and long-term disability benefits can support you if Graves’ disease makes it impossible for you to return to work.
With more than 20 years of experience working with major insurance companies across the country, Dabdoub Law Firm can help you recover the benefits you need and deserve.
Understanding Graves’ Disease
Graves’ disease is associated with a number of unpleasant and even dangerous symptoms and complications.
Symptoms of Graves’ disease may include:
- A fast and irregular heartbeat
- Diarrhea or frequent bowel movements
- Goiter (an enlarged or swollen thyroid)
- Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
- Muscle weakness
- Heat intolerance
- Increased sweating
- Nervousness or anxiety
- Trembling hands
- Trouble sleeping
- Weight loss
- Menstrual irregularities (in women)
Graves’ disease is also associated with skin conditions and an eye disease called Graves’ ophthalmopathy (GO), which can cause bulging eyes, double vision, light sensitivity, and pain and swelling around the eyes.
In severe cases, large goiters can interfere with breathing and swallowing, and GO can lead to blindness.
Any of the symptoms and complications we’ve discussed can interfere with your ability to work, and a more severe case of Graves’ disease can leave you permanently disabled.
If you need time to adapt to your condition or you are unable to return to work for the foreseeable future, our disability insurance attorneys are here to help you get the benefits you need and deserve.
