An employers legal responsibility not only means they have to look after your health and safety to prevent one off accidents, they also have to try to prevent you from getting any industrial illnesses or diseases, for example fibromyalgia.
The solicitors in Farleigh are used to injury compensation claims regarding fibromyalgia. The illness is often associated with the heavy lifting of objects, such as in a warehouse or maybe a carer who lifts a patient without the proper equipment and help.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome, which can often cause pain in the tissues around your joints, or organs or in the skin. As people are different the pain can usually happen in one place, although it can be widespread. The type of illness it is means that the pain can change from day to day. One day it can only cause slight discomfort and another day it can leave you not being able to move.
Some patients experience other problems as well, for instance:
- Tingling sensations
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Irritable Bladder Syndrome
- Memory difficulties
You may be in pain for quite some time, as there is no known test to diagnose this condition. But eventually medical treatment is given, but by then it might be too late as you might not have been able to continue working.
Unfortunately there is not a cure, so that means the treatment is only trying to control the symptoms to try to make life a bit easier for you.
The solicitors in Farleigh and claiming against your boss
If the fibromyalgia can be proved to have happened at your work, then the solicitors in Farleigh, on your behalf, should make a personal injury compensation claim.
This condition can take a long time to manifest itself, and does not always come to light until much later. By then you are in an awful lot of pain and sometimes unable to carry on with your job.
The symptoms 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.
