Muscular Dystrophy Disability
Call Our Long Term Disability Attorneys
People who have been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy undergo abnormal gene mutations that afflict their muscles, often beginning at a young age. As time goes on, the muscle fibers weaken and cannot regenerate. The end result is a muscular dystrophy patient cannot conduct many day-to-day activities, and severe cases can even lead to muscular paralysis.
People living with muscular dystrophy may not be able to:
- Hold objects with articulation, such as writing utensils
- Breathe without assistance
- Lift one or both arms
- Learn new skills without difficulty
Finding and keeping gainful employment as a muscular dystrophy patient may be unreasonable or impossible due to the physical and mental limitations caused by the disease. If an employer or private-party provides the patient with disability insurance, though, it could be possible to find stability with long term disability coverage and/or short term disability coverage. For legal guidance through these complicated processes, you can come to Dabdoub Law Firm and speak with our long term disability insurance lawyers about your condition, financial needs, and insurance coverages.

Long Term Disability Benefits for Any Occupation
Muscular dystrophy is an intensely debilitating genetic disease, as it weakens most or all of the body’s muscles to the point they effectively become paralyzed. Depending on how rapidly the disease progresses, a patient might be bedridden in a matter of a few years after an initial diagnosis. Keeping any occupation might not be possible in a brief amount of time, so it is important to explore your legal options with our ERISA attorneys and long term disability lawyers as soon as possible.
