You purchase your long term disability policy to protect your income and if you have been diagnosed with phlebitis or thrombophlebitis, you should apply for long term disability benefits.
Phlebitis is the inflammation of a vein that causes a circulatory problem. Phlebitis means a “vein with inflammation” and if it progresses to “thrombophlebitis” that means that you have a “blot clot”.
Deep thrombophlebitis is associated with tenderness, pain and swelling on your extremity, and difficulties with your extremities such as standing or walking. Unfortunately, there may be no signs of deep vein thrombosis until you have a pulmonary embolism that moves through your vein system to your lungs.
You have any of these symptoms, you should immediately go to the emergency room and seek medical care.
If you physician has told you that you are unable to work as a result of phlebitis or thrombophlebitis you should apply for long term disability benefits. It is important that you document the problems that you have with pain, swelling of your extremity and any problems you have with the activity of daily living such as walking, standing, or stooping.
If your claim for long term disability benefits as a result phlebitis or thrombophlebitis is denied, you should appeal that denial after you secure the services of a long term disability/ERISA attorney.
You should also apply for Social Security Disability benefits to provide you with additional financial assistance.
Thrombophlebitis can endanger your life and the denial of your long term disability claim can endanger the financial well being of you and your family. You should consult a phlebitis’s/thrombophlebitis long term disability attorney for assistance in your disability application and long term disability appeal process.
