Brian Barr Solicitors take on case for long-term fibromyalgia sufferer

This case study was written thanks to the expertise of our team, including Alex Cohen, Philip Cohen, and Steven Akerman, leading experts in compensation claims for chronic pain and serious injury.

Brian Barr recently took on a case for a long-term sufferer of fibromyalgia whose condition was worsened due to work responsibilities, and secured the claimant substantial damages, despite his employer denying liability.

Mr F, a delivery driver and warehouse operative for a luxury retailer, had suffered from fibromyalgia for many years, causing him widespread aches and pains, fatigue, stiffness and issues with his memory on occasion.

Mr F carried out a physically demanding job, an integral part of which was manual handling. His employers were aware of his condition, but following changes in the nature of his work and workforce, Mr F’s fibromyalgia began to deteriorate. He felt that his employers did not take his condition seriously and Mr F was subsequently signed off sick as a result of his exacerbated fibromyalgia.

The decline in his health resulted in his inability to work and Brian Barr Solicitors secured him a substantial settlement for fibromyalgia for loss of earnings and as well as compensation for his requirement for care and assistance due to his increased chronic pain.
