Our Lawyers Understand That Fibromyalgia Can Manifest Itself in Many Ways

Fibromyalgia is a neurological condition that manifests as widespread muscle pain. In personal injury cases, it’s brought on by the physical trauma from an accident or the stress of dealing with an injury. We understand that the debilitating effects of fibromyalgia extend far beyond physical pain. We help people cope with the disruption of being unable to work or to enjoy social and personal activities because of their re-occurring condition.

Our lawyers care that your fibromyalgia injury is properly diagnosed

We know how important it is to fully understand fibromyalgia. Diagnosis requires putting pressure on specific “trigger points” found on the body. These points are soft tissue regions and intense pain must be felt in at least 11 of the 18 areas for diagnosis. Symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Early morning stiffness
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Un-refreshing sleep
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty concentrating and remembering
  • Tingling and numbness in the hands and feet
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

What is the cause of fibromyalgia?

The actual cause of fibromyalgia remains a mystery to the medical world and there is no cure. As with whiplash and chronic pain, some skepticism surrounds injuries of this nature. Insurance companies are often dubious of claims involving hard-to-pinpoint general pain and malaise. Our personal injury lawyers know what you’re going through, and we care about making your injury and suffering understood. That’s why we consult experienced medical professionals to assure injuries like fibromyalgia are properly diagnosed and reported to the insurance companies so you can seek compensation, accident benefits, and treatments to live as comfortably as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, absolutely. If you have fibromyalgia as the result of a car accident, then you should talk to one of our lawyers and we can give you an idea of the amount of compensation you will need because of your injury.

The short answer is maybe. Each case is unique and it's always best you consult one of our personal injury lawyers for a full analysis of what benefits you are eligible for.

Damages for pain and suffering are non-pecuniary damages. Typically, it is challenging putting an exact dollar amount, which is why pain and suffering awards tend to vary. non-pecuniary damages in Ontario are however capped at $360 000. In Ontario, someone suffering an injury in an accident must also meet a threshold. If not, then they cannot recover non-pecuniary damages.
