Injury attorney in Newcastle


All employers have legal duties to protect the health and safety of their employers at work, and this includes the prevention of industrial illnesses and diseases such as fibromyalgia. Personal injury compensation claims using an injury attorney in Newcastle or elsewhere are not uncommon for fibromyalgia, as they are quite often associated with heavy lifting, often sustained by workers in a warehouse or carers lifting patients without the proper help.

An injury attorney in Newcastle and fibromyalgia

It is a chronic pain syndrome which causes pain in the soft tissue around joints, in the skin and organs. The pain is usually widespread and can vary greatly from patient to patient. Some days it will cause moderate discomfort and other days it can be totally disabling. Some patients experience other problems as well, such as:

  • Anxiety;
  • Memory difficulties;
  • Tiredness;
  • Headaches;
  • Sleeplessness;
  • Tingling sensations;
  • Irritable bowel syndrome;
  • Irritable bladder syndrome; and
  • Depression.

There are no known tests to help in diagnosis, so quite often it means months of suffering for the patient before any sort of medical help is given and they have maybe had to stop working until they can be treated. There is no known cure and therefore it is a case of treating the symptoms to try to make life more bearable for the sufferer.

Claiming against the employer

If the fibromyalgia can be attributed to the sufferer’s employment, then the injury lawyer in Newcastle working on behalf of the employee should make a personal injury compensation claim against their employer.

How bad the illness is does not always become apparent until many months later, when the person is in a lot of pain and usually unable to work because of it. To start with, it can feel like a pulled muscle or perhaps a strained back. It is only as these don’t improve as they should, and the pain gets worse, that the syndrome is diagnosed.
