Severe Migraines - Disability Claim

Severe Migraines are normally diagnosed because of complaints you have made to health care providers, where little "objective" medical evidence is available. 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.
