Fibromyalgia claim settles for £550,00 at Joint Settlement Meeting

4th December 2015

Ben Casey represented Claimant who suffered soft tissue injuries following a significant road traffic accident.

Ben Casey, instructed by Christine Tallon and Sarah Saldhana of Leigh Day, represented the Claimant who suffered soft tissue injuries following a significant road traffic accident.  Within a short period of time thereafter she began developing widespread pains together with other symptoms that had a significantly adverse affect on her life.  She was subsequently diagnosed as suffering from fibromyalgia although that diagnosis remained in issue between the parties throughout the legal proceedings.  The Claimant’s employment was terminated as a result of her symptoms.  The principal areas of dispute centred on the correct diagnosis, the cause of the Claimant’s symptoms, whether such symptoms would have arisen in any event and the Claimant’s work capacity both in the absence of the accident and in the current circumstances.
