Living with fibromyalgia as the result of an accident or injury that wasn’t your fault can be hard. There may need to be adaptions to your home or changes to the way you live.
Doctors and lawyers in general have a relatively poor understanding of fibromyalgia but many sufferers are able to make fibromyalgia claims. Many aren’t even aware they can make the claim and the two main ways a claim is possible is due to:
- The condition being a result of an accident
- The condition not being honoured through a specific insurance policy you had in place if this type of thing were to occur
The litigation process for fibromyalgia is quite complex, especially as diagnosis can be difficult to come by, but there are specialist solicitors who focus on the condition and have high success rates for getting the sufferers the results they deserve.
To assist your claim it’s essential that you keep a diary of your condition and how it is effecting your life on a daily basis. This could be as simple as listing your medication and highlighting any flare ups as the regularity of flare ups and the amount of medication could affect the final claim value. In the same vein it’s recommended you keep all of your receipts. This will mean for prescriptions, for parking in the hospital for your multiple visits and details of loss of earnings. The more evidence you have that the condition is severely impacting upon your life, the more chance you have of the case being taken seriously.
The key thing to remember is that a professional solicitor with experience in this field will do all they can to fight your corner and ensure you get the compensation you deserve to improve your quality of life.
