Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disorder which manifests as extreme fatigue that lasts more than 6 months, has no identifiable medical cause and is not alleviated with rest. Chronic fatigue syndrome is also called systemic exertion intolerance disease or myalgic encephalomyelitis.

The exact cause of chronic fatigue syndrome is unknown and because of this insurers will often attempt to deny disability claims caused by chronic fatigue syndrome. The lawyers at Taylor & Blair can make sure you get the coverage you are entitled to.
