Medical conditions that keep you from breathing correctly, such as asthma, can be some of the most frightening to deal with. Asthma is triggered by a wide range of stimuli, including physical exertion, emotional stress, chemicals, pollutants, cold or warm air, moist air, perfume, cigarette smoke, animals, and other pathogens in the environment. Asthma affects the respiratory system, and when triggered, this chronic condition constricts the airways, making it difficult to breathe.
You may want to work like you used to, but if you suffer from asthma you run the risk of triggering an asthma attack every time you go out. At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder we understand how challenging this can be for our clients. We help people who suffer from many different pulmonary disorders, including asthma, file their Social Security Disability application and get the benefits they are entitled to support their families and make ends meet.
There is no cure for asthma. Though it can be controlled with medications, for some people asthma can severely affect quality of life and become disabling. For that reason, asthma is listed as one of the Social Security Administration's disabling medical conditions in the respiratory system category.
If you experience severe and frequent asthma attacks that interfere with your ability to work at any job for 12 months or longer, you could be eligible for asthma disability benefits. Like any disability, asthma conditions must be proven to the Social Security Administration (SSA) with medical records and doctor's statements. At the Law Office of Charles E. Binder and Harry J. Binder, we can evaluate your asthma disability eligibility and take care of the work of filing and proving your asthma disability benefits claim.
