Disability Benefit Attorney For Heart And Lung Conditions

Some heart and lung conditions can be so devastating that they prevent you from working. Debilitating and serious heart and lung issues must be disabling for more than one year for you to be eligible for benefits. While not all heart and lung conditions rise to the level of severity required to receive SSD benefits, the following may be significant enough to prevent you from working:

  • Lung disease
  • Emphysema
  • Severe asthma
  • Heart attack
  • Open-heart surgery
  • Congestive heart failure

If, for example, you have difficulty walking, completing tasks, sitting or standing, attorney Drake will assess your case. If you qualify for disability benefits, she will file your paperwork, appeal a denial of benefits and fight for your right to benefits.

Since most requests for disability benefits are denied the first time, she has significant experience appealing a denied application. When your case is denied, it is especially important that you consult with a skilled SSD lawyer. Attorney Drake will analyze your legal records to determine what issues to raise at the hearing. She will present persuasive arguments at the appeal to make sure you are heard throughout the complex process.
