Ovarian Cancer Treatment side effects and your rights to long-term disability benefits
If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and your treatment plan involves chemotherapy, you may experience physical, emotional, and psychological side effects. These can include:
- Nauseousness and vomiting
- Mouth and throat problems
- Anxiety and depression
- Nerve and muscle problems.
When ovarian cancer prevents you from working, you may be entitled to receive long-term disability benefits if you purchased a disability policy from a private insurer or have coverage through an employer. Unfortunately, long-term disability carriers don’t make it easy to get the disability benefits you deserve, and in particular, do not understand the side effects of chemotherapy and how it can impact your employability. If you have been denied your long-term disability benefits because of ovarian cancer, disability attorney Nancy Cavey can help you cut through the red tape and fight for your benefits no matter where you live in the United States.
