Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
Long Term Disability Lawyers By Your Side
Respiratory issues are one of the most common and most debilitating health conditions, especially in people over the age of 40. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in particular can be quite disabling, as it is the combination of two or more respiratory problems. Typically, someone diagnosed with COPD has chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which causes them to cough, hack, wheeze, and feel an uncomfortable shortness of breath throughout the day. COPD is especially concerning in that the damage done to the lungs due to its symptoms is irreversible.
If you have been diagnosed with COPD and it is interfering with your work, please call (800) 969-0488 to connect with Dabdoub Law Firm. We are dedicated entirely long term disability claims, including appeals, settlement negotiation, and lawsuits. We represent people with employer-provided insurance and self-employed insurance policies all across the country and have experience with every major disability insurance company.

Common Symptoms & Conditions of COPD
A doctor’s diagnosis can be clear evidence of your COPD. Simply having COPD might not be enough to convince an insurance provider or your employer that you have become too disabled to work. Dabdoub Law Firm and our long term disability lawyers can step in, take over your case, and craft an argument that solidly shows your occupational disability is real and caused by COPD. We usually begin by looking at the symptoms and showing how they cause disability.
People living with COPD experience these symptoms almost-constantly:
- Dry, painful cough
- Irritated airway
- Shortness of breath
- Inability to participate in physical activity
- Chest tightness
- Sinus flare-ups or swelling
- Proclivity to sinus and respiratory infection
