Getting You The Money You Need

Social Security Disability For Heart Conditions

Throughout metro Atlanta and the surrounding counties, Skibiel Law has earned a reputation for diligence in our work and compassion for our clients. From your initial consultation to the final resolution of your claim, we will remain by your side, navigating you through a complex and sometimes challenging process and securing SSDI or SSI benefits.

The Help You Need When A Heart Condition Prevents You From Working

Certain types of heart diseases and cardiovascular problems may qualify you for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA). These include:

  • Aneurysm — Weakness in the wall of the blood vessel results in a bulge in the aorta, brain or other arteries. A rupture can lead to fatal bleeding.
  • Arteriosclerosis — Hardening of the arteries occurs when fatty or calcium deposits cause artery walls to thicken.
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF) — Veins become backed up with blood returning to the heart, resulting in congestion in the tissues.
  • Coronary artery disease/ischemic heart disease (IHD) — Arteries are clogged and narrowed, restricting blood flow and depriving the heart of oxygen.

Being diagnosed with one of the above or any other heart condition does not guarantee disability benefits through the SSA. Certain standards must be met, including, but not limited to proof that limitations in physical exertion or abnormalities in the heart muscle or vessels leading to the heart exist.

Similar to other SSDI or SSI applications, the chances of an initial rejection are high. The help of an attorney is vital in pursuing an appeal. Our Social Security Disability attorney, Joshua Landers, understands the stakes involved when our clients are suffering from serious heart conditions and unable to make a living. While they focus on their health, he attends to every detail in his aggressive pursuit of disability benefits.

Client Testimonials

Mark was very knowledgeable and kept me informed with my case. He wasn’t intimidated with the large law firm. I know for a fact that without his expertise and diligent work ethic my settlement wouldn’t have reached the amount it did. He worked far beyond what I expected, meeting with the company doctor, therapist, and insurance representatives. HAVE A TALK WITH HIM ITS FREE!!!!!

Mark takes the time to get to know you as a person, not just as a case. He’s an attorney you can trust to keep you informed on every aspect of the case. I received all info about the case as soon as he did, and Mark carefully answered every question that I asked. I would recommend Mark to anyone who is in need of an honest attorney.

When my adjuster refused to pay for lost wages and for prescriptions, I felt the need to hire an attorney. After a brief consultation, I hired Mark. Within days, I saw results in my case. Everything that happened in my case went exactly as he told me it would happen in our initial consultation. When we went to the hearing, it seemed very one-sided and we won “hands down.” From start to finish, my case lasted less than nine months. My lost wages were recovered, and a sizeable settlement as well. Kudos Mark.

Mark explained, in detail, how the law would apply to my case and assured me it would take some time for me to accomplish my goal. During my case Mark and his staff kept my wife and me informed and updated. Every time my wife or I called Mark’s office we were able to get a response from either him or his staff. When we settled my case, it was more than I ever expected. Mark and his staff were professional in handling my claim. My experience with Mark and his office was wonderful!
