Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease Disability Insurance Lawyers

Our Long-Term Disability Attorneys Are Here for You

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that can spread to your joints, heart, and nervous system. If left untreated, it can cause serious complications. Even after treatment, symptoms of pain, fatigue, and confusion can continue for more than 6 months. This is known as post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS).

The effects of untreated Lyme disease or PTLDS can interfere with your day-to-day activities and make it hard for you to maintain gainful employment. If symptoms associated with Lyme disease or PTLDS prevent you from working, you may be eligible for short-term disability benefits while you recover. If your infection continues to interfere with your employment, you could be eligible for long-term disability coverage, as well.

At Dabdoub Law Firm, we can help you gain access to your benefits through an employer plan or one you carry on your own (if you are self-employed). For over 20 years, our firm has been helping clients just like you with disability insurance claims, appeals, and lawsuits.

The first step toward getting the benefits you’re entitled to is calling our firm at (800) 969-0488 today.

Causes and Complications of Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi, which is spread by black-legged deer ticks in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Upper Midwest, and Pacific coast. If you have a tick attached to you for 36 hours or more, you could develop Lyme disease. Early symptoms start between 3 to 30 days after your bite, and include:

If you spot these signs early enough, prompt treatment can help you recover fully over a short period of time. Nevertheless, Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed, and the longer the infection exists in your body, the more serious it becomes.

Long-term symptoms of Lyme disease include:

  • Severe headaches and neck stiffness
  • EM rashes all over the body
  • Facial palsy (drooping on one or both sides of the face)
  • Arthritis with severe joint pain and swelling
  • Pain in the tendons, joints, muscles, and bones
  • Heart palpitations
  • Irregular heartbeat (Lyme carditis)
  • Dizziness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Inflammation of the brain and spinal cord
  • Nerve pain
  • Numbness or tingling in the extremities

Any of the symptoms above can make it difficult for you to work. More than 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease each year and many people suffer from severe, debilitating symptoms. Further, 10 to 20% of people who are diagnosed with Lyme disease also experience PTLDS, which can affect your mobility and cognitive skills at work and beyond.
