Hypertension Disability Claims
Fighting Major Insurance Companies So You Don’t Have To
Millions of Americans will be diagnosed with or live with the complications caused by hypertension every year. A patient is considered to have hypertension – or just high blood pressure (HBP) – if they consistently have a blood pressure reading of 130/80 or higher. The health condition is difficult to diagnose and often causes no outward symptoms until it becomes severe enough to trigger potentially fatal complications.
Since hypertension is “invisible” most of the time, insurance companies are often tempted to discard any long-term disability insurance claims filed by hypertension patients without giving them a proper investigation. In fact, some dishonest insurers will automatically deny any hypertension claim and see if the claimant has the energy or interest to challenge them through an appeal.
At Dabdoub Law Firm, we think it is simply wrong for hardworking people like you to be cast aside so often by insurance companies that seem to often be more interested in profits than doing what is right. That’s why we founded our law firm with one purpose in mind: stand up to insurance companies to secure LTD benefits for our clients. We do not distract ourselves with any other case type or practice area.
Disabling Conditions Caused by Hypertension
Hypertension is particularly concerning when diagnosed because the prognosis is so unclear. The condition may be controlled and remedied with diet, exercise, and medications. On the other hand, it might be an issue rooted in genetic or another disease, leaving it largely incurable.
As time goes on, untreated high blood pressure will start to manifest into other dangerous health conditions. It is at this point that hypertension becomes significantly disabling. Although, the argument can be made that hypertension is disabling in its early stages since the patient should be allowed time to rest and to explore treatment options.
Three of the worst health conditions caused by hypertension are:
In-Depth Investigations to Improve Your Claim
A big part of the Dabdoub Law Firm recipe for claim success is our ability to thoroughly investigate a client’s claim, medical condition, and occupation. We get to the core of your disability and how it is preventing you from continuing work due to its complications and symptoms. We evaluate your medical record to find clear and convincing medical evidence of your disability as well. Registered nurses contracted by insurance companies often have little to no understanding of specific diseases and conditions like hypertension, so they have to decide if a claim is worthy of approval or not based on educated guesses. With the evidence we build into our cases, we can confidently challenge their decisions and demand reinstatement or approval of benefits or threaten litigation otherwise.
