Another study confirming that medication overuse can make headaches worse

The disability insurance companies will often argue that a claimant is not taking a enough medication to treat a disability caused by headaches or migraines. Our disability lawyers have been arguing with disability carriers for years about their unreasonable beliefs regarding headaches and the use of medication. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence in the United Kingdome recently posted a great article confirming that the “Overuse of Painkillers Can Make Headaches Worse.”

There have been hundreds of medical studies published which confirm that medication overuse will increase rather than help alleviate headaches. More than 10 million people in the UK experience headaches frequently or at regular intervals. “While there are around 200 distinct types of headache, 95 per cent of headaches are due to four types of disorders, namely tension-type headaches, migraines, cluster headaches, and medication overuse headaches.

Our law firm has represented hundreds of individuals disabled by headaches. Since headaches are subjective complaints, disability insurance companies will often come up with unreasonable excuses to deny these claims. If you have a disability claim involving headaches or are considering filing a claim, then contact us for a free consultation.

What are your fees?

Since we represent disability insurance claimants at different stages of a disability insurance claim we offer a variety of different fee options. We understand that claimants living on disability insurance benefits have a limited source of income; therefore we always try to work with the claimant to make our attorney fees as affordable as possible.

In every case we provide each client with a written fee agreement detailing the terms and conditions. We always offer a free initial phone consultation and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you in obtaining payment of your disability insurance benefits.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Robin B.

I could not be happier with the service and dedication I received from Mr. Jessup and his team regarding my Long Term Disability from my employer. If not for Mr. Jessup I would have never had a favorable decision, as I had received two denials before I had contacted Mr. Jessup. My advice to anyone looking for a lawyer to go to bat for you without backing down and having your best interests a top priority Mr. Jessup is who you need to call.
