Ypsilanti Lung Disorder Lawyers

Michigan Breathing Disability Attorney

The onset or worsening of a serious lung disease can make it impossible to work consistently at any occupation. You may be suffering from extreme shortness of breath with any exertion, coughing, wheezing, chest pain and even more severe symptoms. Building and pursuing your claim for Social Security disability benefits can be critical for your own support and that of your family.

At our respected Southeast Michigan law firm, you can work with a compassionate, dedicated attorney who has in-depth knowledge of Social Security disability law and how to demonstrate the severity of your disability due to a lung disease or disorder. We get to know our clients, providing sound guidance and personal attention as we deliver an all-out effort to succeed with your claim.

Representation for People Suffering With Asthma, COPD and Other Disabling Lung Problems

The Social Security Administration (SSA) specifically lists numerous respiratory diseases and conditions as qualifying impairments for disability benefits. Some of these include:

  • Asthma
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Chronic pulmonary insufficiency due to various causes
  • Various chronic infections of the lungs

Benefits criteria and guidelines also acknowledge that other lung impairments and diseases may be equal in severity to those listed. We are prepared to assist clients coping with COPD in the form of emphysema or chronic bronchitis, for example.

Taking Strong, Skilled Action After Claim Denials

If your application for SSDI or SSI benefits has been denied, we are prepared to analyze the reasons why and build your case for approval at the reconsideration phase or on appeal. A veteran of hundreds of winning appeals, attorney J. Gregory Frye is adept at presenting medical evidence, your treatment history and other documentation in your favor.

You can contact an Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti lung disorder attorney — also available to meet with you at full-service offices in Taylor, Adrian or Jackson, Michigan — for the help you need. We offer a free case evaluation and handle Social Security disability appeals on a contingency basis, earning attorney fees only if we win your case.
