Assisting You With Long-Haul COVID Disability Claims
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the evolution of a medical condition known as long-haul COVID. Because long-haul COVID is a fairly new condition, the medical community’s knowledge of it is still evolving. However, we do know that it is a serious condition recognized by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Insurance providers are facing a record number of claims related to long-haul COVID. Unfortunately, many insurers tend to reject these claims or offer much lower settlements than their policyholders deserve. At Disability Insurance Law Group, our team of disability attorneys can advocate aggressively to recover the insurance benefits to which you are entitled if you have long-haul COVID. We serve clients throughout Florida and nationwide.
What To Know About Long-Haul COVID
Long-haul COVID refers to symptoms of COVID-19 that linger in some patients long after the standard two-week duration of the virus. Medical professionals also sometimes refer to this as a post-COVID syndrome, long COVID or PASC – post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2.
As with standard cases of COVID-19, the symptoms of long-haul COVID vary from patient to patient. However, some of the most common symptoms include:
- Brain fog (Difficulty thinking)
- Shortness of breath
- Heart palpitations
- Chest pains
- Loss of sense of taste
- Loss of sense of smell
Certain risks factors can increase your likelihood of long-haul COVID. These factors include:
- Type 2 diabetes
- SARS-CoV-2 RNAemia
- Epstein-Barr virus viremia
- Certain autoantibodies
Unfortunately, there is no known cure for long-haul COVID. Treatment often requires a multidisciplinary approach as the condition can affect multiple organ systems. In severe cases, you may need to seek hospitalization.
