Helping Clients With Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Prove Their Insurance Disability Claims

Have you been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) syndrome or another chronic pain condition with uncertain causes? Does chronic pain prevent you from working although it has not been definitively diagnosed?

Results-Driven Representation For Fibromyalgia Sufferers

At Pillsbury & Coleman, LLP, we know that chronic pain may make work unbearable and unsustainable, and that you may be dealing with fatigue, depression and the side effects of medication as well. Your inability to work due to fibromyalgia or chronic pain may make your disability insurance benefits absolutely essential to your financial survival and support — and our attorneys are here to help if your STD, LTD or other claim is wrongfully denied or delayed.

Attorneys Prepared For The Challenge Of Your Complex Disability Claim

Our Northern California chronic pain attorneys have many decades of experience focused exclusively on representation of insurance policyholders. Our statewide California disability law practice has yielded many multimillion-dollar recoveries for people dealing with many types of disabling conditions, including fibromyalgia and other conditions that cause chronic pain.

You can work with a lawyer prepared to counter the many strategies and tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying benefits, such as:

  • Disputing your diagnosis and whether your condition meets the policy's definition of disability — often with the involvement of independent medical examiners (IMEs)
  • Questioning your decision to stop working because your condition has gradually worsened
  • Citing ambiguous policy language and exclusions
  • Rescinding your coverage — canceling it retroactively — after you have filed a claim
  • Neglecting to consider the potentially disabling side-effects of your necessary pain medication

Proven Disability Lawyers You Can Trust For Guidance And Action

We can help you pursue your legal options whether you are covered by a group or individual disability plan, which determines whether we have recourse under state law or must pursue ERISA litigation. Our dedicated lawyers are adept at compelling insurers to meet their obligations, and we will not be intimidated by the unique aspects of your case.
