Fibromyalgia and Disability Claims

Until recently, not much was known about Fibromyalgia. As with any disorder that does not have visibly apparent symptoms, individuals may find that their symptoms aren’t taken seriously by their loved ones, employers or even their medical doctors. Consequently, one of the most common misconceptions about the disorder has been, and still is, that the pain is “all in your head.” We now know that Fibromyalgia is a physiological and neurochemical issue–the pain is real.

Fibromyalgia and Disability Claims

In the context of long-term disability claims, individuals with Fibromyalgia often have a difficult time convincing their insurers that the disorder is disabling. These claims often require the expertise of a seasoned disability lawyer with extensive experience representing individuals with Fibromyalgia to negotiate a fair and equitable resolution.

We represent a large number of clients who have chronic pain, fibromyalgia and other critical illnesses and are denied benefits under either a group disability insurance policy or a private policy. These cases are usually heavily dependent on obtaining the necessary medical evidence to prove the disability in a way contemplated by the policy in question. Most policies contain time limits that can be difficult to interpret and so as soon as your claim for disability benefits has been denied, we would encourage you to contact our long term disability lawyers to discuss your long term disability dispute case to see if we can be of assistance to you and your family.
