Social Security and Breathing Problems
Breathing-related problems leave can leave you gasping for air and exhausted. You may need to avoid pulmonary irritants like dust, fumes, temperature extremes, and humidity. You may require supplemental oxygen or frequent doses of steroids to remain healthy. At McCroskey Law, we realize that breathing-related impairments can make work impossible. Our skilled Social Security attorneys are ready to answer your questions-- call for a free evaluation today.
Social Security includes many respiratory or breathing-related impairments, including:
- COPD or emphysema;
- Cystic Fibrosis; and
- Chronic Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
Our Social Security attorneys will review your medical history and records in detail. It's important that we understand your personal limitations and treatment history. Make sure to tell us about your history of ER visits, inpatient hospitalizations, pulmonary testing, and use of medication. We will also need to discuss your smoking history.
If your breathing-related conditions cause serious problems with your lung function, you may qualify for benefits under the Social Security Administration's technical Listings of Impairment. It can be very difficult for the average person to understand and evaluate a breathing-related Listing. However, McCroskey Law's Social Security attorneys have the knowledge and experience to guide you through this assessment. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
Even if you conditions to not meet the Listing standards, you still may be disabled under the Social Security rules. Again, our attorneys have the skills and experience to assess your claim, and advise you of your rights. We look forward to working with you. Contact McCroskey Law today.
