Fibromyalgia – Disability Claim
Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic disease resulting in a number of symptoms, including pain tender/trigger points, difficulty with sleeping, concentration and a host of other symptoms. The greatest difficulty with legal cases involving this illness is establishing your credibility with insurers and their lawyers who firstly do not accept this diagnosis, and secondly, do not believe that such an illness can be caused by an accident or a traumatic event. In addition, in the context of disability claims, there is the difficulty of convincing the insurer that the illness is disabling.
