Peripheral Artery Disease Disability Claims Attorneys
Get Short-Term or Long-Term Benefits for PAD with Dabdoub Law Firm
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition caused by plaque buildup in your peripheral arteries, or the blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart and to other parts of your body. In PAD, plaque buildup can reduce or stop blood flow, and blocked blood flow can cause tissue death, amputation, and other serious medical problems.
If you suffer from PAD, you may have difficulty walking or climbing stairs, which can prevent you from maintaining a full-time job. PAD is a qualifying medical condition, so if you have disability insurance through your employer or a private policy, short-term or long-term disability benefits can help you take the time you need to manage and treat your illness.
No one with disability insurance should be expected to work through peripheral artery disease, and Dabdoub Law Firm can help you get the disability benefits you deserve.
For help with filing a claim, appealing a denial or termination of benefits, or filing a lawsuit against your insurance company, please call us at (800) 969-0488 today.
Understanding Peripheral Artery Disease
In the United States, PAD affects approximately 6.5 million people aged 40 and older. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
“The classic symptom of PAD is pain in the legs with physical activity, such as walking, that gets better after rest.”
Claudication (cramps with walking) can strike in the calf, thigh, hip, or buttock, and other physical symptoms include:
- Muscle weakness (atrophy)
- Hair loss
- Decreased leg hair
- Poor nail growth on the toes
- Smooth, shiny skin
- Skin that appears pale or bluish
- Skin that is cool to the touch
- Decreased or absent pulses in the feet
- Sores or ulcers on the legs or feet
- Delayed healing in the legs or feet
- Cold or numb toes
- Erectile dysfunction (in men)
Because PAD can increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiac events, you should speak to your doctor immediately if you notice any of the symptoms we listed above. The pain, numbness, achiness, or heaviness in the leg muscles that define PAD usually improve with rest, but only long-term treatment can provide more than a temporary fix.
Treatments for PAD include medication, surgery, and lifestyle changes. Taking time off work should never be an excuse to delay treatment, especially if you have disability insurance.
Dabdoub Law Firm can help you get the benefits you need to pay your bills while you recover from PAD.
