Disability Benefits for Asthma
Social Security Disability Lawyers
Do you suffer from asthma?
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that can cause the lungs to be inflamed, narrowing the airways. When asthma is exacerbated, it can cause wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, fatigue, and coughing. More than 20 million Americans suffer from asthma.
Social Security looks at how asthma affects your maximum physical ability to perform work-related activities on a continuing basis. Social Security is required to consider the nature and extent of your asthma, and how this condition restricts your ability to sit, stand, walk, lift, carry, push, and pull, as well as your ability to perform postural or manipulative activities (i.e. bending, twisting, stooping, reaching, fingering, or feeling). Social Security will also assess any further limitations that your asthma might cause, such as a need for environmental restrictions, unscheduled breaks, or excessive absences due to symptoms or treatments.
