Ischemic Heart Disease Disability Insurance Attorneys
Helping Clients with Ischemic Heart Disease Claims Nationwide
Also called coronary artery disease, ischemic heart disease is the most common type of heart disease in the United States. Ischemic heart disease refers to all heart problems caused by narrowed heart arteries (coronary arteries), and the symptoms of the disease are often disabling and dangerous. Many people do not realize they have ischemic heart disease until they suffer a heart attack.
Employees and professionals with coronary artery disease may be unable to fulfill the duties of their occupations and need short-term or long-term disability benefits to look after their health and avoid heart failure, especially after suffering heart attacks. Ischemic heart disease is a qualifying medical condition for disability insurance, which means insurance companies must pay out benefits to those who cannot work due to the disease.
If you have disability insurance through your workplace or a private plan, Dabdoub Law Firm can help you file a claim for benefits. We can also help you appeal denied claims and hold insurance companies accountable under ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974).

What Is Ischemic Heart Disease?
The term, “ischemia” refers to a condition in which blood flow and oxygen are restricted or reduced, and ischemic heart disease occurs when the heart muscle suffers decreased blood flow and oxygen. When coronary arteries become narrowed or clogged, the result is ischemic heart disease (coronary artery disease).
Left untreated, ischemic heart disease can lead to heart attacks. The symptoms of the disease include:
- Angina (chest pain or discomfort)
- Feeling light-headed
- Cold sweat
- Pain and discomfort in the arms or shoulder
- Shortness of breath
- And more
When you experience these symptoms, your heart is telling you it does not have enough oxygen. Over time, this shortage of oxygen can weaken your heart muscle and cause heart failure.
Still, some people experience ischemic episodes without symptoms in a phenomenon known as silent ischemia – these people may have a heart attack with no prior warning. Silent ischemia is common in those with diabetes or who have had heart attacks in the past.
Treatments for ischemic heart disease include cardiac rehabilitation, lifestyle changes, surgical procedures, and medicine. Because stress can interfere with healing and even trigger heart attacks, many people are unable to work during cardiac rehabilitation. Further, patients who need surgery or major lifestyle changes may need to take time off work.
From the onset of symptoms through rehabilitation, ischemic heart disease can take away your ability to work. If you have disability insurance, Dabdoub Law Firm can help you recover short-term or long-term benefits while you look after your health.
