Respiratory Conditions And Social Security Disability

Having a hard time breathing can make daily living and your job very difficult to handle. When your body is not getting enough oxygen, you often become easily fatigued and even the simplest tasks, such as walking, can become a huge challenge. If you find yourself suffering from respiratory problems or have been diagnosed with a chronic lung condition, such as COPD or emphysema, you may qualify for benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

Applying for these benefits with the SSA (Social Security Administration) is not an easy process. Many initial applications are denied, and it is common for applicants to appeal. Documentation to support your claim must be gathered to support your application. This can be a long and arduous application process. That is why it is so important to have the help of a skilled SSDI attorney.

At Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, we help clients who are suffering from respiratory illnesses and seeking SSDI benefits.

Respiratory Illness/Condition

If you or your loved one suffers from severe restriction due to shortness of breath, is easily fatigued or has difficulty walking long distances, seek medical attention as you could have a respiratory condition. Our law firm can help you seek SSDI benefits if that is what is required for your situation.
