We Help Others Understand Your Suffering

Migraine headaches are difficult to predict and even harder to prevent or control. There is no simple diagnostic test or objective way to measure their intensity. But anyone who suffers from migraines knows that they are totally debilitating for as long as the episode lasts. If your migraines are frequent and severe enough to prevent sustained employment, you may qualify for Social Security Disability or be entitled to benefits under long-term disability insurance. However, you will almost surely need an experienced attorney to secure those benefits because of the difficulty in proving that you meet the criteria. At Abromson & Carey, Attorneys at Law, we can skillfully advocate for you at any stage of the claims and appeals process. Contact our Newark law firm for a free consultation.


A Lawyer For Chronic Headache (Migraine) Disability Claims

Because migraines are difficult to quantify in objective medical terms, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will take many factors into consideration:

  • A credible diagnosis, based on an MRI, CT scan and any other evidence
  • Self-reported or observed symptoms such as headache, vertigo, sensitivity to light or sound
  • Frequency and severity of migraine attacks
  • Limitations on activities of daily living, such as ability to concentrate, converse with others, walk or stand
  • Medications and other treatments attempted
  • Other physical or mental impairments
  • Hospitalizations
  • Work record

Migraine cases often come down to the general credibility of the claimant. Would a person who has always been a hard worker or high earner drop out of the workforce and fake migraine symptoms just for SSDI benefits? The SSA may seek additional testimony from doctors, employers or family members who can attest that your claim is legitimate.
