 Migraine Headaches Risk Factors

There are a number of factors that can result in migraines including:

  • Conflicting sleep patterns
  • Delay or skipping meals
  • Taking medication that results in swollen blood vessels
  • Everyday use of pain medication designed to fight headaches
  • Bright lights
  • Motion pictures
  • Certain types of food
  • Loud noises

Individuals that experience a high amount of stress or are fighting depression are also more susceptible to migraines.

 Migraine  Headaches Symptoms

Many people that have migraines have several of the following symptoms:

  • Extreme pain located on one side of the head
  • Upset stomach
  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Headaches lasting three consecutive days or more
  • Vision issues
  • Intensified pain during strenuous activity

If I have migraines, can I qualify for workmans’ compensation benefits?

Any full-time employee (working for an employer with four or more employees) who has an employment related injury and needs medical attention should be covered under workers’ compensation insurance. It doesn’t matter if the injury was a complete accident or the fault of a co-worker.

The employee MUST notify his or her employer within 90 days of the injury or risk losing the right to benefits under workers compensation. (It is recommended that you record details of your accident and to whom you reported it.)

Migrant and seasonal farm workers are not covered under workman’s compensation insurance.

If it’s been more than 90 days since your work accident occurred, you may need help obtaining benefits for medical treatment and lost wages. You can contact The Strom Law Firm’s work injury lawyers to discuss the facts of your case at no charge.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
