Social Security Disability (SSD) can be a time-consuming and complicated process. Courts are backlogged in some cases over 18-24 months. Make sure you contact an attorney to get assistance getting it right the first time. This article is about Respiratory Disorders as defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA). These types of disorders involve breathing - specifically the inhaling and exhaling of oxygen from the lungs.
Common symptoms of this type of disability include; shortness or rapid breathing, coughing up blood, or asthma. These are just basic examples. As with every disability, it's important to have documentation from every doctor you see. Not only for reimbursement purposes but to prove the disability in front of a judge.
Regardless of how you obtained Respiratory disorder, you may be eligible for social security disability. If the disorder arose from a work related illness or accident, such as cleaning asbestos or constantly breathing in debris as part of your daily work day, you could be entitled to workers' compensation.
