The expensive cost of treating bronchiectasis

Workers in Indiana may find themselves devastated after they are diagnosed with bronchiectasis. Since the medical condition has no cure, the situation is made especially bad if you have family members that heavily depend on you and your income.

Individuals may suffer from a long-term disability when the bronchial tubes in their lungs become enlarged and damaged. The common result of this affliction is numerous breathing problems due to infection. To live normally, individuals who have bronchiectasis are given costly treatments to lessen the risk of infection. Patients are prescribed with antibiotics and bronchodilators to suppress bacteria and to open up air passages. Other medications are also prescribed for patients to release mucus and to control chronic coughing. In more severe cases, patients may need to undergo surgery if bleeding occurs inside the lungs. In some situations, patients are also required to undergo therapy or a daily procedure to extract mucus.

If you become disabled by bronchiectasis, an attorney can help you pursue long-term disability insurance benefits. Find out how Hankey Law Office in Indiana may help you today by calling (800) 520-3633.


Long-Term Disability benefits for workers affected by Sarcoidosis Disease

Long-term disability insurance often overlooked

Most people know the benefits of having auto, health, life, and homeowners’ insurance, but the importance of long-term disability insurance often goes overlooked.

The disability of a breadwinner can have serious consequences on a family’s financial outlook. The disabled person stops making money, but begins to accrue numerous burdensome costs because of their new inability to work.

Having disability insurance will allow a person who suffers the unfortunate event of becoming disabled to continue having  the funds they need to pay their expenses.
