Disability Claims For Migraines, Backaches, And Depression Are Often Denied
Disability Benefits Claims Are Often Initially Denied
Disability Claims Attorney, Sacramento
It is increasingly commonplace for disability benefits applications to be initially be denied. This is due in large part for the economic benefit of the insurance company, but it can also be the criteria used to determine whether or not your disability prevents you from working. For example, some people suffer from an occasional migraine, but for some, chronic migraines can be incapacitating. Some people need to take certain medications that can have such serious side effects they can make it impossible for the patient to maintain a steady job. Claims for backaches, neck injuries, and depression are also often initially denied, because, unlike an injury that can be seen (i.e., a broken bone), insurers simply suspect most claims as being fraudulent or that the affliction is not significant enough to warrant paying out disability benefits .
