Toronto Fibromyalgia Lawyer
Fibromyalgia is a medical condition characterized by prolonged pain throughout the body, achy joints and general fatigue. While similar to chronic pain syndrome, those with fibromyalgia may not always have the same symptoms from day to day, and pain may move to other areas of the body over time.
Representing Clients Throughout Ontario: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Lawyer Michael A. Yermus
Those who suffer from fibromyalgia can have difficulty performing even simple tasks, and thus may be prevented from returning to work or seeking employment at all. Yermus & Associates, and his legal team help individuals suffering from fibromyalgia in Toronto and throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). We seek to help clients understand their legal options for making a claim to maintain financial stability and security.
We understand that continuous pain, while perhaps not physically evident, can still significantly impact your ability to work and perform your daily routines.
Fibromyalgia has many causes, but medical professionals have demonstrated that it can develop in individuals who have suffered a prior traumatic accident or catastrophic injury. Such individuals usually have had no history of chronic pain up until their accident, and while the physical injuries may have healed, the pain remains. Some patients experience fibromyalgia along with localized chronic pain simultaneously.
Making A Claim For Fibromyalgia
Without a proper diagnosis, recovering medical or financial benefits for fibromyalgia can be difficult. As your advocate, we can refer you to medical experts who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of various chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia.
We will then explore all available options to recover the medical and income replacement benefits to which you may be entitled under employer-provided long-term disability insurance, Canada Pension Plan benefits or private insurance coverage.
