Heart Attack Disability Claims

A heart attack is a life-changing experience. A heart attack occurs when the blood flow that normally brings oxygen to the muscles of the heart is cut off, usually because of a blockage of the coronary arteries. Without blood blow, the heart muscle is starved for oxygen and at a certain point the muscles of the heart are damaged or actually die. When that happens, a person experiences a heart attack.

This is about a Social Security Disability claim.

The severity of the heart attack can range from a vague flu-like feeling to feeling like an elephant is standing on your chest. Women present different symptoms than men, and very often are undiagnosed.

❯❯ Read a recent success story

One of the issues facing people who file a disability insurance claim as a result of a heart attack is that people have different levels of damage, the damage occurs in different locations in the heart and everyone heals differently. For some people, surgery may be necessary and there are many different types of surgical procedures, depending on the injury to the heart and arteries.

While some people are able to return to work afterwards, others are never able to return to work. The wide range of severity of heart attacks is one reason why disability insurance companies may consider your claim to be questionable and seek to obtain more documentation or request invasive medical examinations.
