ASTHMA AND SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

Posted October 29, 2014

A lot of people apply for disability due to asthma. The problem with many of the claims is that the severity of the asthma is not documented very well. One way to document the severity of asthma is to show it causes severe episodes that require you to go to the doctor or to the hospital.

Doctors can also perform breathing tests such as a Pulmonary Function Tests or Blood Gas Tests to show how your asthma affects your lungs and breathing ability. However, these tests do not always help to show the severity because asthma does not always affect the lungs but rather affects the bronchial tubes.

The main reason asthma can be disabling is because employers do not want to keep workers who can suffer an attack at any time and do not keep workers who have to miss time at work due to asthma attacks.

At Drummond Law, we know how to properly document asthma and its severity and know how to develop the evidence to help win a disability case for asthma.

For nearly 40 years, Drummond Law has been helping people with asthma win disability claims. If you need help with your claim, call (800) 842-0426 for a free consultation.
