One of the most common diseases Americans face in today’s day and age is diabetes. Fortunately for many, they can live with their diabetes in a way that doesn’t significantly impact their lives. However, for others, their diabetes can be more serious. In some cases, diabetes can lead to kidney damage, infections of the gums or skin, cardiovascular disease, weight loss, a weaker immune system, and more. If your diabetes has caused any of the aforementioned and you find yourself unable to return to work because of your medical condition, you are most likely worried about your future. Please continue reading and reach out to our nationwide long term disability attorneys to learn more about whether you can receive long term disability benefits if you’re diabetic and how we can help you through each phase of the process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
Will I qualify for long term disability if I am diabetic?
Unfortunately, not everyone with diabetes will automatically qualify for long term disability benefits. If you believe you’re entitled to LTD benefits because of your diabetes, you should speak with a competent attorney who can assess your circumstances and begin the process on your behalf. Our firm will have to gather various forms of evidence, and then use this evidence to prove that your diabetes significantly impacts your life and prevents you from returning to the workforce for the foreseeable future. Some of the most useful types of evidence can include medical records, doctor’s notes, and more. Our firm will fight for the long term disability benefits you and your family need, every step of the way. If you’re ready to get started, simply pick up the phone and give us a call today. We are on your side.
How can long term disability help me?
Long term disability benefits can help a person and his or her family stay financially afloat in the absence of a regular paycheck from work.
