Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Long-term disability claims can come as the result of illness or injury, including long-term illnesses, progressive conditions and cancer. While undergoing cancer treatment, an insurance company will likely approve benefits, as there will be clear cut evidence as to why a person is unable to work. However, there are residual side effects that occur after cancer treatments that may not be as evident to the insurance company and the insurance company may feel that once treatment is completed, a person can return to some form of employment as the cancer is in remission.
Chemotherapy and radiation can cause long-term health problems. These cancer treatments can also affect each person in a different way, and not every person recovers in the same way.
After receiving a course or multiple courses of chemotherapy and radiation, a person could potentially developing long-term symptoms of fatigue, lymphedema, cognitive difficulties, neuropathy and possibly psychological symptoms. A combination of these physical and psychological symptoms would make it very difficult for someone who has just completed treatment to recommence employment.
