There are many types of illnesses that can affect daily living in negative ways. Some of these handicaps are quite obvious to those around you, such as the inability to walk and being confined to a wheelchair. Others may be just as debilitating but not as obvious. Respiratory illnesses are some of the most overlooked disabilities, but they can make daily living extremely difficult. If you are suffering from one of these conditions, you might be eligible to receive social security benefits. A consultation with a disability attorney in Ocala can help answer some of the questions you may have.
Examples of Debilitating Respiratory Illnesses
Obstructive pulmonary disease, restrictive pulmonary disease, asthma, history of a lung transplant, emphysema, pulmonary tuberculosis, and sarcoidosis are just a few of the conditions that are sometimes classified as debilitating respiratory illnesses. While every case may not qualify, those who have a documented medical history, and quality of life affected by these illnesses, may be eligible for benefits.
How Social Security Disability Can Help You
If you are unable to work due to your condition, you may have difficulty making ends meet. If you are able to work, you may struggle to hold a job because you have to miss so often due to being sick. Social Security Disability Insurance can help restore lost wages and give you the opportunity to live independently. A qualified Ocala disability attorney can help better your chances of making a case for this type of insurance payment.
How to Find Out if You Qualify
Because the legal system is so difficult to navigate on your own, contacting a disability attorney may be the right step. An experienced attorney will help you file the right information to make your claim and can help answer any questions you may have getting started with the filing process.
