People afflicted with degenerative disc disease entitled to LTD benefits

People should consider applying for long-term disability (LTD) benefits in Indiana if they can no longer earn an income due to the debilitating symptoms of degenerative disc disease (DDD). People who are afflicted with DDD may find it impossible to carry out even the most simple tasks if they experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Chronic pain that takes place in the lower back or neck
  • Sharp pain triggered by usual body positions such as bending or lifting of objects
  • Problems sitting and standing for longer periods
  • Varying pain levels depending on body positions triggering back and neck pain

Though there are medicines and therapies available to alleviate DDD symptoms, individuals suffering from it may file a claim because severe cases of DDD may require expensive surgical procedures to address the crippling pain.

If you can no longer continue working because of the debilitating symptoms of degenerative disc disease, working with a skilled legal counsel could be beneficial if you are applying for or appealing your LTD benefits.
