Disabling complications of peripheral artery disease

Individuals may find it hard to sustain the financial needs of their family if they are prevented from doing their jobs after developing peripheral artery disease (PAD). However, workers who are covered by long-term disability insurance (LTD) may be entitled to benefits that can help them through tough financial times.

Individuals affected by PAD may find it difficult to complete even simple task like walking. This is because PAD causes restricted blood and oxygen flow to the lower limbs. A person with PAD may experience severe pain from the hip down to the calf muscles when walking. When the arteries are narrowed due to plaque buildup, a person with PAD is at risk of other serious complications as well. Parts of the person’s body affected by PAD may need to be amputated in some serious cases. Stroke and other cardiovascular diseases may also occur in relation to PAD.

If you have suffered an injury or illness that prevents you from working, a lawyer of the Hankey Law Office in Indiana may be able to help you file for your long-term disability benefits. Learn more about the services we offer today by calling (800) 520-3633.
