Heart Failure Disability Claims Attorneys
We Can Help You Get Disability Benefits After Congestive Heart Failure
Heart failure occurs when your heart cannot pump enough blood to meet your body’s needs. Your heart may be unable to fill with enough blood, have insufficient force to pump blood through the rest of your body, or face both these problems simultaneously. Although heart failure does not mean your heart has stopped working, it is a serious medical condition that requires care and attention – and it can keep you from meeting the duties of your occupation.
If you have been diagnosed with heart failure and need disability benefits, do not hesitate to contact Dabdoub Law Firm. With more than 20 years of experience, we can help you get the financial assistance you need while you pursue treatment and focus on your health.

Understanding Congestive Heart Failure
According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute:
“Heart failure develops over time as the heart's pumping action grows weaker.” You may have problems with the left side of your heart, the right side of your heart, or both. Most people struggle with function on both sides of their heart, which means they cannot get enough blood into their lungs nor get enough oxygen-rich blood to the rest of the body.
Heart failure is more common among men than women, as well as people who have had heart attacks in the past. It often affects people who are overweight and accompanies other health concerns – like coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
Signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure include:
- Frequent urination
- Shortness of breath or trouble breathing
- Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
- Swelling in the ankles, feet, legs, and abdomen
- Weight gain
If you are having difficulty breathing and completing physical tasks, you may be unable to work. Further, you will have to seek treatment, which sometimes includes open-heart surgery and other medical procedures, and change your lifestyle significantly.
Whether you need time to recover from surgery or ongoing care for heart failure or related conditions (i.e., diabetes and high blood pressure), Dabdoub Law Firm can help you recover short-term or long-term disability benefits from your disability insurance company.
