Chronic pain can have many causes and does not show up on any X-rays or MRIs. Fibromyalgia is a complicated condition that most people, including many doctors, may overlook.
What both have in common is that they can change your life, cause you many economic, social and emotional losses, and can be very difficult to prove. Insurance companies often point out that many people who claim either one do so when they don’t have any “real” injuries to show, and try to make it sound as though the claimants only do so in order to get money.
At Rooz Law, our fibromyalgia and chronic pain lawyers for North York know that you may have an uphill battle to prove either condition. We understand that fibromyalgia is often contributed to by stress, such as the stress of dealing with all of the physical, emotional, financial and legal challenges of your accident and lawsuit. We also understand that chronic pain may be invisible, but it can affect your entire life.
Both conditions may make it difficult to work, move, take care of yourself and your family, and have normal social relationships.
We have the experience needed to prove your condition to the insurance company and convince it that your losses and expenses are very real.
Fibromyalgia can be confused with other conditions, such as depression, chronic fatigue syndrome or multiple sclerosis. Some of the symptoms include:
The symptoms of chronic pain can also lead to difficulties in obtaining a solid diagnosis, and to confusion with other conditions.
For all conditions resulting from injuries, Rooz Law’s lawyers concentrate on your symptoms and their effect on your life. We can help by making the insurance companies pay the compensation for your injuries just as much as if they were visible injuries, regardless of the label they carry.
