Does Having a Pacemaker Qualify for Long Term Disability Benefits?

When someone gets a pacemaker installed, they have a lot to think about. In many cases, when someone has a pacemaker, it is because they have bradycardia, a medical condition that causes a slower heartbeat, or they have a heart block, which essentially means that they have a slow electrical signal through their heart. In many cases, pacemakers can successfully fix any such problems, however, they cannot fix everything permanently, and in many cases, those who either suffer from heart failure or arrhythmias after having a pacemaker installed may qualify for long term disability benefits if they can prove that their medical condition prevents them from returning to work. If you find yourself in this situation, you should strongly consider retaining the services of our knowledgeable nationwide long term disability attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through every step of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How can long term disability insurance help me if I have a pacemaker?
