Heart Arrhythmias And Heart Disease

Heart disease is a broad term used to describe a range of diseases that affect the heart or blood vessels. Some of these diseases include heart attacks, coronary artery disease, heart arrhythmias, and congenital heart defects. Heart disease can cause symptoms such as chest pain and shortness of breath. It can also cause pain, numbness, weakness or coldness in the legs or arms.

Social Security looks at how heart disease affects your maximum physical ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your heart disease, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will consider your limitations in climbing ladders, ramps, ropes, or scaffolds. Social Security will also assess any further limitations that your heart disease might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.

If heart disease interferes with your ability to manage daily activities or maintain employment, Zerbe Garner Blondell & Weldon LLP can help. Our attorneys help individuals suffering from heart disease fight for disability benefits.
