Cancer Disability Claims Attorneys Representing Clients Across the Country

Cancer Disability Claims Attorneys

At Disability Insurance Law Group, our Florida and Nationwide attorneys know Cancer is a group of diseases that occurs when abnormal cells grow uncontrollably or spread to other parts of the body.

Cancer can start almost anywhere in the human body when the cell reproduction process breaks down, and abnormal or damaged cells grow and multiply when they should not. Often, these cells form tumors — except in cancers of the bloodstream — that spread into, or invade, nearby tissues and can travel to distant places in the body to form new tumors.

Depending on the person, the type of cancer, and the stage in which it was caught, treatment may be invasive and exhausting for those suffering from these conditions.

Our cancer disability insurance attorneys assist individuals throughout the country in filing disability claims, so they can thoroughly and strategically apply for the benefits they need to take back control of their lives. Long-term disability can help cancer sufferers focus on their medical care, treatment, and overall well-being – instead of worrying about how they will pay their bills while seeking potentially life-saving care.

If you have disability insurance — whether your coverage was underwritten as a private or employer-provided policy — and are in the United States, allow our Florida and Nationwide disability insurance claims attorneys to help you pursue the benefits afforded through your policy.

We have over 50 years of combined experience pursuing all insurance coverages and corporations for the benefits policyholders across the nation deserve. Contact us now to learn more. We can pursue your disability insurance company for the help you need today.

When are Cancers Considered an Impairment?

Our cancer disability attorneys assist policyholders nationwide with outlining the severity of their conditions and compiling the necessary medical records to support their claims.

According to the National Cancer Institute, there are multiple types of cancer, including:

  • Carcinoma

Carcinomas are the most common type of cancer. They are formed by epithelial cells, which are the cells that cover the inside and outside surfaces of the body.

  • Sarcoma

Soft tissue sarcoma forms in soft tissues of the body, including muscle, tendons, fat, blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerves, and tissue around joints.

  • Leukemia

Cancers that begin in the blood-forming tissue of the bone marrow are called leukemias.

  • Lymphoma

Lymphoma is a cancer that begins in lymphocytes. These are disease-fighting white blood cells that are part of the immune system. In lymphoma, abnormal lymphocytes build up in lymph nodes and lymph vessels, as well as in other organs of the body.

  • Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is cancer that begins in plasma cells, another type of immune cell, and builds up in the bone marrow and forms tumors in bones all through the body.

  • Melanoma

Melanoma cancer begins in cells that become melanocytes, which are specialized cells that make the pigment that gives skin its color. Most melanomas form on the skin, but melanomas can also form in other pigmented tissues, such as the eye.

How are Cancers Diagnosed?

Most people experience general signs and symptoms associated with cancers that will lead them to pursue medical care to find the underlying cause of their conditions.

Some of the general symptoms may include, but are not limited to:

  • Changes in bowel or bladder habits.
  • Difficulty swallowing.
  • Fatigue.
  • Hoarseness.
  • Lump or area of thickening that can be felt under the skin.
  • Persistent cough or trouble breathing.
  • Persistent indigestion or discomfort after eating.
  • Persistent, unexplained fevers or night sweats.
  • Persistent, unexplained muscle or joint pain.
  • Skin changes, such as yellowing, darkening, or redness of the skin, sores that will not heal, or changes to existing moles.
  • Unexplained bleeding or bruising.
  • Weight changes, including unintended loss or gain.

Diagnostic procedures for cancer may include imaging, laboratory tests, tumor biopsy, endoscopic examination, surgery, or genetic testing.

Once an individual has been diagnosed with cancer, the American Cancer Society lists common treatments — which will be specific to each person, and the type of cancer — as:

  • Surgery.
  • Chemotherapy.
  • Radiation Therapy.
  • Targeted Therapy.
  • Immunotherapy.
  • Stem Cell or Bone Marrow Transplant.
  • Hormone Therapy.
  • Palliative Care.
  • Clinical Trials.
  • Precision or Personalized Medicine.
  • Off-label Drug Use.
  • Biosimilar Drugs.
  • Tumor-agnostic Drugs.

Depending on the diagnosis, cancer can leave patients unable to work for extended periods, as the complications from both the disease and the treatment can be debilitating. This is why we are here.

Common treatment complications may include, but are not limited to:

  • Pain.
  • Fatigue.
  • Difficulty breathing.
  • Nausea.
  • Diarrhea or constipation.
