Under Social Security Disability one can be deemed disabled due to the complications from a heart attack. Most of the clients I have represented who have suffered from a heart attack have far more complications after their attack. Many of these include stent placement surgeries, strong medications, limits on their mobility and stamina, additional hardware placed in or around their heart, and further surgeries to repair possible damaged arteries or valves. All of these complications either alone or combined are very important to your claim.
When I represent someone who has suffered from a heart attack I first review their medical history and then consult with medical experts to get their opinion on the medical evidence. There are certain things that a medical expert may be able to glean from medical history that could be very important in your claim. I then review the requirements of Social Security Disability and see how your medical history fits into the rules. I have a Registered Nurse who is on immediate call for case discussion from me.
Many factors will go into the determination of your claim by the Social Security Disability department, such as age, ability to ambulate, education, stamina, ability tolerate smells climates chemicals, and past work history. Especially important in a claim based on a heart attack are the factors mentioned above, including your medical history and your doctors observations of you.
