Chronic fatigue syndrome may finally have treatment

One of the problems anyone who has filed a long-term disability insurance claim in Miami has had is proving disability. Oftentimes, insurance companies will try very hard to deny benefits by claiming an applicant is not disabled or by arguing that while the applicant may not be able to perform his or her old job, there are still things that he or she can do. Sometimes, insurance companies may deny someone their insurance claims because the company has said the individual is not permanently disabled. Working with a disability insurance attorney, however, may be one of the best ways to get the disability insurance benefits an applicant deserves.

A Palm Beach County judge was faced with a terrible choice this week. A man who, according to police, had broken his father’s legs, wanted to go home. He didn’t want to miss Halloween, which was just a few days away, he said. He was clearly confused, and his actions showed he couldn’t control his emotions — but everyone there knew he wasn’t mentally ill. This man has a brain injury, and the judge knew that insurance companies and the state of Florida have failed people with a disability like his.
