Denver and Aurora Personal Injury Attorney
Fibromyalgia is a disease that afflicts between 3 to 6 million Americans. This chronic and debilitating disease affects nearly every aspect of a person’s life and people who suffer from fibromyalgia may have trouble continuing in their profession, enjoying their hobbies and even performing basic care. In addition, this frustrating disease is difficult to diagnose and victims are often put through years of medical testing and medications before a complete diagnosis is actually made. If your fibromyalgia is the result of a traumatic motor vehicle accident or injury at work, it may feel like no one is on your side. Luckily, Colorado law is on your side and a Colorado personal injury attorney with experience litigating these difficult cases can help.
An astonishing 80% – 90% of all fibromyalgia sufferers are women and this painful disorder is associated with extreme muscle pain and tender points throughout the body, as well as fatigue. Victims suffering from fibromyalgia may complain about headaches, stiffness in joints and pain along the neck, back and spine. Numbness in the hands and feet and sleeping difficulties are often reported —as well as difficulty with memory or thinking.
As fibromyalgia worsens, victims often find themselves taking multiple pain medications simply to get through the day. Without a diagnosis, employers may simply begin to view the victim as “lazy” or “uncooperative”. As a result, many fibromyalgia sufferers find themselves out of work and unemployed during the most difficult time in their lives. In addition, insurance companies may deny claims without a proper diagnosis of fibromyalgia, leading to lengthy insurance disputes.
If you have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia or believe you may have fibromyalgia, it it important to contact a Colorado personal injury attorney immediately. Your attorney will be able to help you collect Social Security benefits, Disability benefits or workman’s compensation if you are eligible. In addition, if your fibromyalgia was caused by a car accident or motor vehicle accident, the person responsible for the accident may be liable for your injuries.
