What is the Claims Process?


    Free Claims Assessment

    You speak with one of our team at no cost, as we offer a free claims assessment. We’ll speak with you about your situation, and give our view of whether you have a chance of successfully claiming compensation.


    Assigning a Solicitor

    A Solicitor will be assigned to your case. We give our clients a single point of contact within our Serious Injury team, so you’ll always know who you need to talk to.


    Medical Experts

    We’ll gather evidence to support your claim, including a medical report prepared by an independent medical expert. We’ll arrange for you to be assessed by this expert, so they can give us details of your condition and how it could affect your life.


    Valuing Your Claim

    We’ll also assess the financial impact of your injury, such as how much any recommended treatment will cost, and include this in our valuation of your claim.


    Contacting the Responsible Party

    We’ll contact the person or party you hold responsible, asking them to agree to fund a package of treatment tailored to your needs and help you on the road to recovery.


    Interim Payment

    If they agree to do so, and accept they’re responsible for your injury, we may ask for an interim payment of compensation, as you may not be able to wait until the final settlement for financial, medical or rehabilitation support.

FAQs about Fibromyalgia Claims

If your fibromyalgia symptoms have been caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim for compensation.

Any compensation settlement will reflect your unique circumstances, such as:

  • Your age
  • How your symptoms have affected your life
  • Your ability to work
  • The financial impact of your injury
  • The severity of the pain you’ve experienced
  • Whether you need additional care and assistance, and how much this will cost
  • How you’ve been affected psychologically
  • Your future medical prognosis

If we can take on your case, we’ll carry out a thorough investigation of your situation so we can accurately value your claim and how much compensation you need.

While there’s no cure for fibromyalgia, steps can be taken to improve your quality of life.

After you’ve discussed treatment and care with your GP, we can help put together an injury care plan. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treating fibromyalgia, so this plan will reflect your specific needs and circumstances. Sometimes this treatment is not available on the NHS so we can help fund this treatment.

It may also include treatments from several different healthcare professionals, such as:

  • Rheumatologists
  • Neurologists
  • Psychologists

You may also be advised to take several types of medication to manage your condition, including painkillers, anti-depressants and remedies to help you sleep.

The injury care plan may also include alternative treatments such as:

  • Hydrotherapy - swimming, sitting or exercising in a heated pool
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Psychotherapy - a therapy that involves talking through thoughts and feelings
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
  • Manipulation
  • Aromatherapy

Some of these treatments can help to de-stress people suffering with fibromyalgia. While these therapies aren’t a cure, they can reduce the exacerbating factors that make symptoms worse.

Fibromyalgia claims are often handled on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means if we don’t secure your compensation for you then you won’t have to pay us for any of the legal work that we’ve done up until that point. Just ask us for details.

In England and Wales, you have three years to claim compensation for fibromyalgia, starting from the date you had your accident or when you first became aware of the problem.
