COPD Disability Claims Attorneys Representing Policyholders Nationwide

COPD Disability Claims

At Disability Insurance Law Group, our Florida and nationwide attorneys know that Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a long-term lung disease that makes it hard to breathe. COPD can include chronic bronchitis and emphysema, according to the American Lung Association.

The Centers for Disease Control reported 16 million Americans have COPD, but millions more may be suffering from this condition, and just have not been diagnosed and are not being treated.

There is no cure for COPD, although it can be treated. Depending on the severity of the condition, it can be difficult to complete daily tasks, use any form of exertion without struggling to breathe, or work in certain environments — or at all.

Our Broward County disability insurance attorneys assist individuals with COPD throughout the country with their disability insurance claims, so they can thoroughly and strategically apply for the benefits they need to take back control of their lives.

If you have employer-provided or private disability insurance and are in the United States, allow our Florida and nationwide disability insurance claims attorneys to help you pursue the benefits afforded through your policy.

We have over 50 years of combined experience pursuing all insurance coverages and corporations for the benefits policyholders across the nation deserve. Contact us now to learn more. We can pursue your disability insurance company for the help you need today.

When is COPD Considered an Impairment?

Our COPD disability attorneys assist policyholders nationwide with outlining the severity of their conditions and compiling the necessary medical records to support their disabilities.

COPD disrupts a person’s ability to move freely or work in their required capacity — no matter which industry or position they work in.

Common symptoms of COPD include, but are not limited to:

  • Chronic cough.
  • Coughing up sputum (phlegm or mucus).
  • Fatigue or tiredness.
  • Feel like you cannot breathe.
  • Reoccurring lung infections like pneumonia.
  • Shortness of breath while doing everyday activities.
  • Unable to take a deep breath.
  • Wheezing or chest tightness.

Later stages of COPD may include the worsening of current symptoms, flare-ups, exacerbations, or an event where symptoms are worse requiring sufferers to seek urgent or emergency care.

In addition, long-term COPD can lead to weight and muscle mass loss, anorexia, or an increased risk for depression or anxiety.

If you have been diagnosed with COPD that is keeping you from working and enjoying the quality of life you deserve, contact our nationwide disability insurance attorneys today to discuss your condition during a free consultation.

How is COPD Diagnosed?

To diagnose COPD, which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, healthcare providers will review the person’s symptoms, complete health history, conduct a physical exam, and review test results. 

Your physician will need to know how your COPD symptoms have changed your daily life, including changes in your activities or ability to work.

There are breathing tests or lung function evaluations healthcare providers may perform, and include:

  • Alpha-1 testing.
  • Chest X-ray.
  • CT Scan.
  • Oximetry or arterial blood gas (ABG).
  • Spirometry.

This typically unfolds during multiple doctor visits where the healthcare professionals will determine your level of severity and create a treatment plan, which will be monitored for improvement during subsequent visits.

If you have been struggling with COPD that is impacting your ability to work and lead a normal life, contact our experienced disability insurance claims attorneys for help pursuing a claim. We have successfully produced real results for real people across the U.S. who needed our help and can provide the same customized legal strategy for your claim.
