Long term disability benefits and leukemia

Indiana workers may be entitled to long term disability benefits (LTD) if they can no longer continue doing their job due to the disabling symptoms of leukemia. Leukemia is a type of cancer which causes bone marrow to produce defective white blood cells in the body.

While symptoms of leukemia may differ depending on the type a person has, below are the usual symptoms of the cancer:

  • Chronic weakness, fatigue, and fever
  • Episodes of bleeding, including chronic nose bleeding
  • Unexpected weight loss
  • Pain or swelling of the bones
  • Enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, or liver
  • Profuse sweating at night
  • Serious infections

The above leukemia symptoms may result in financial loss if workers can no longer continue performing work-related duties and require complex treatment. The lawyers of the Hankey Law Office in Indiana know just how important it is for workers who have been diagnosed with leukemia to get their disability benefits in order to pay for expensive treatments.
