Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a debilitating disease. It leads to constant shortness of breath and gets progressively worse over time. If you have COPD, it may be impossible for you to continue working. If you cannot work for 12 months or longer, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Millions of Americans, including people with COPD, depend on SSDI benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) does not approve claims for benefits without first taking a close look at all of your medical evidence.
In order to be successful in your disability claim, it is important to show the SSA just how your physical condition makes it impossible for you to work. Your claim will have a better chance of success if your doctors closely document your condition. The more specific information your doctor can provide, the more information the SSA will have to make an informed decision about your claim for benefits. Our law firm will take this information from your doctors and use it to present an effective claim.
