HIV/AIDS has been an epidemic for more than thirty years. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 1.1 million people nationwide are living with HIV infection, and almost 1 in 5 (18.1%) are unaware of their infection. If you are disabled as a result of HIV or AIDS and/or secondarily related diseases, our disability insurance attorneys are available to discuss your potential short or long term disability insurance claim. The medications for treating and controlling HIV are very effective, however the side effects of the medications and secondary medical conditions often make it difficult for people with HIV to work. We have represented numerous long term disability claimants suffering with HIV and our disability lawyers understand the restrictions and limitation caused by the disease.
