Common Cardiovascular Conditions Can Have A Big Effect

Cardiovascular conditions — such as heart attacks and heart disease — not only interfere with your ability to perform the daily activities you once enjoyed, but also may prevent you from maintaining employment.

Since 1974, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Clark, James, Hanlin & Hunt, have been helping individuals struggling with cardiovascular diseases to obtain the financial resources and medical insurance coverage they need to treat their diseases while staying financially afloat.

Cardiovascular impairments include any disease that affects the heart or blood vessel system in a person's body. Common cardiovascular impairments include:

  • Heart disease
  • Heart attacks
  • Chronic heart failure
  • Heart aneurysms
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Ischemic heart disease (IHD)
  • Arrhythmia

Proving The Nature And Extent Of Your Disease

Due to the complex nature of cardiovascular conditions, it can be difficult to prove an individual impairment rises to the level of a disability. Oftentimes, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will want to know the specific ways your impairment prevents you from holding employment and why medications are not working.

At Clark, James, Hanlin & Hunt, our lawyers work closely with physicians and specialists to prove that your condition not only exists, but is also so severe as to prevent you from maintaining employment.

Work activity limitations set forth by your doctor are particularly helpful in proving your Social Security claim. Limitations on standing or sitting, exertion and dealing with stress help prove to the SSA that you are unable to work.
