Q: Can my fiancee sue for short term disability after she appealed with work and was still denied?

My fiancee developed chronic migraines and had paperwork from the state saying that she was unable to work. She tried to go back to work but it was too much for her and she ended up having to leave early and call off. I myself ended up at the end of my attendance points from having to leave early or call off to take care of her so she wouldn't pass out when no one else was home. My final attendance point came from this most recent snow storm when the next day after the emergency warning I called off to avoid putting my health and safety in jeopardy of the 20-30 mph winds in combination of snow and ice on the roads. We are now both left without a job from the company we worked at and she still has not seen any STD pay even after her appeal. Is there anything we can do?

A: You should talk to a lawyer who handles those, however disability claim on migraines is very tough.
