Is Heart Disease Keeping You Out Of Work?

Heart disease can cause severe fatigue, light headedness, concentration problems, pain and other symptoms that make it very difficult, if not impossible, to maintain employment. If a heart condition is keeping you out of work, the attorneys at Davis, Davis & Patterson can help you apply for monthly disability benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. The Social Security Administration (SSA) does not approve benefits easily, but we can give you the best possible chance of obtaining a favorable outcome.

Heart Disease And SSDI

If you suffer from any of the following types of heart disease, you may qualify for SSDI benefits (note, this list is not exhaustive):

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Coronary heart disease 
  • Ischemic heart disease
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Recurrent arrhythmias
  • Severe hypertension

In order to be approved for benefits, you must provide the SSA with documented evidence that you suffer from heart disease and your condition prevents you from working. Evidence of heart disease may come from electrocardiograms (EKGs), cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), stress tests and other medical evaluations. Remember, the SSA will only take your claim seriously if you get treated for your condition and follow your doctor’s orders.

We are here to handle all of the legal details of filing your claim and, if necessary, appealing a denied claim. We have more than 80 years of combined experience in disability law and a proven record of success obtaining favorable results for our clients.
