Pain disorders, such as fibromyalgia, are real, and yet often, it takes a long time before you are diagnosed, if at all. By then, you could already be suffering serious physical, mental, emotional, and even financial effects.
Disability insurance should protect you from the occupational and financial impacts of fibromyalgia. However, many claims are denied or delayed, if not disputed and minimized.
Zayouna Law firm recognizes the hurdles posed by disability insurance claims. We’re here to help you fight your insurer’s decision, and reclaim the benefits you were wrongfully denied. Our lawyers can help you seek every dollar of compensation you deserve to ease the impacts of fibromyalgia.
As an “invisible” disability, fibromyalgia is often misunderstood and dismissed as being “made up” and “just in your head.” Many employers and insurance providers are reluctant to provide adequate support and accommodations, and disability benefits. For persons suffering from debilitating pain and discomfort, this added stress causes even more dire physical, mental, and financial effects.
In severe cases, fibromyalgia can affect your day-to-day mobility and ability to work — common grounds for long-term disability benefits, underscoring the very purpose of income replacement provided through disability insurance.
However, claiming these benefits is often a long and even more painful process paved with extensive medical assessments and documentation. And in many cases, claims are disputed and ultimately denied by insurers. Even when claims are successful, the benefit payout is delayed and insufficient for income replacement, let alone treatments and other expenses.
A denied disability claim should not be the end of the road to recovery and restoring your quality of life. Zayouna Law Firm can help you dispute denied benefits, and seek compensation for your suffering.
With a combination of strong medical evidence, expert testimony, occupational information, and financial proof, you can seek:
A fibromyalgia claim provides you with an avenue to prove the debilitating impact of fibromyalgia on your health, quality of life, and occupation. By taking legal action against your insurance provider, you can earn every dollar of compensation you deserve under the law — for the disability benefits you should have received and the losses you suffered in their absence.
Are you or a loved one suffering from fibromyalgia? You should not have to live in constant pain, discomfort, and anxiety over your condition and its impact on various aspects of your life.
A fibromyalgia claim can fulfill the gaps left by a failed disability insurance policy, providing for your lost income, care, and enjoyment of life. At this time of chronic pain, uncertainty, and enduring trauma, the last thing you need to worry about is being able to provide for your and your family’s basic needs — let alone live.
Your insurer’s decision is no resolution to your situation — the life-altering impact of fibromyalgia on your well-being, and the persistence of symptoms that continue to affect everyday life and underscore the need for disability benefits and compensation. When considering legal action for compensation, you and your fibromyalgia lawyer can consider these factors:
At Zayouna Law Firm, we understand the struggles of living with fibromyalgia — and we believe that you deserve more than the constant pain, discomfort, and disruptions to your normal life and activities. Our fibromyalgia lawyers are dedicated to resolving your denied disability claim, and ensure you receive the benefits and support you need to navigate life with fibromyalgia.

Yes — you can appeal the denial, and file a legal claim to seek compensation. Commencing a fibromyalgia lawsuit allows you to claim the value of the benefits you were wrongfully denied, as well as compensation for the added losses you have suffered due to a lack of proper disability support.
It is in your best interest to consult a disability lawyer as soon as possible — when you file for long-term disability benefits, or upon receiving a denial letter. Due to limitation periods, you may only have a short period provided under the law to commence legal action and seek the compensation you deserve. Failing to file a claim within this period can leave you without the disability support you need, resulting in dire physical, mental, and financial impacts.
Each claim and diagnosis is different. Generally, it may take a year to settle your claim.
This depends on several factors, such as the symptoms you experience, the credibility and cooperation of physicians who provide medical evidence to support your claim, and the strength of your legal counsel.
To build a strong claim and move towards a fast resolution, it’s important to compile exhaustive evidence that supports the losses you have suffered and the need for compensation.
