Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - Disability Claim

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a label used by health care providers primarily based on complaints you have made to them, where little "objective" medical evidence is available to explain the fatigue. The greatest difficulty with legal cases involving this illness is establishing your credibility with insurers and their lawyers who firstly do not accept this diagnosis, and secondly, do not believe that such a condition is real. In addition, in the context of disability claims, there is the difficulty of convincing the insurer that the condition is disabling.
