The term “cardiac disease” broadly encompasses a wide range of diseases affecting the heart, including those related to blood vessels (cardiovascular), as well as heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias), infections and genetic heart defects. The term is often used interchangeably with “heart disease” and “cardiovascular disease.” Cardiac impairments are one of the three most common conditions listed on Social Security Disability claims.

The lawyers at Hermann Law Group, PLLC know what information is needed from your doctors to obtain a favorable decision in your Social Security Disability claim, and we will insure that your claim is presented favorably to Social Security. For some reason it is very common for doctors in cardiac cases to scribble “my patient is disabled and cannot work,” on their note pads and expect that will be enough to win a claim. Unfortunately, that really does not help at all–but we have the experience and ability to tell the doctor what is needed to win a claim, along with the staff and tenacity to make sure we get it!

In any Social Security case medical evidence has to be obtained to support the claim. But what happens when all the records are in but your doctor simply notes “no change,” or “patient is doing well,” at each visit, while failing to explain that you can’t walk without shortness of breath or that you suffer angina or arrhythmias unpredictably?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides disability benefits to persons who are unable to work for one year or more due to a physical or mental impairment. A person seeking Social Security Disability benefits must file a claim with the SSA, starting what is often a lengthy and confusing process. Though we can and do file initial claims for about half our clients, we tell our clients that the initial denial is designed to discourage them, and that is what it does for many of the people who are initially turned down.
