“It’s only a headache.”
Have you ever heard that line? If you suffer from severe, persistent migraines, you know that anyone who dismisses them as “only a headache” has no idea what they are talking about. Migraines can be so debilitating that your entire life grinds to a halt from the nausea, auras, light sensitivity and excruciating pain. Some people are lucky enough to respond to medication, but others do not. You may need Social Security Disability benefits to support yourself.
At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, our attorneys guide people through the benefits application process from beginning to end. We can help you procure the necessary documentation and strengthen your application. With hundreds of clients throughout Wisconsin, we can help you, too. You do not have to pay until we secure benefits for you.

To solve this problem, you will need to create documentation. Here are some suggestions:
Crafting a successful benefits application for persistent migraines is difficult, but it can be done. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with the eligibility requirements and will work with you to give you the best chance of success to obtain benefits right away or obtain benefits after appealing a denied claim.
