Single Mother Suffers Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Single Mother Suffers Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Nature of the Case

S.H. worked to support her family as an Accounts Receivables clerk for nearly four years when she began to suffer chronic fatigue, severe headaches, generalized muscle pain and insomnia. Once a productive employee, her work began to slip and she was unable to fulfill her regular office duties. Concerned, she visited a doctor, who diagnosed her with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

S.H., unable to work, filed an insurance claim, which was fulfilled for nearly four years. Despite the fact that the benefits were paid out for a period of time, they were eventually terminated without reason or explanation. The condition of her health did not change. It also greatly affected her ability to look after her children, her home, and fulfilling basic duties around the house.

When the benefits were cut off, S,H. attempted to resume employment and even took computer and accounting courses to upgrade her skills. The extra studies only exacerbated her symptoms, making her life harder. She enjoyed nothing. On top of the inability to function normally, she was in great financial stress as the benefits once allowed to her were gone.

The Resolution

Bogoroch & Associates ensured that expert medical advice was sought including a haematological pathologist and rheumatologist and general practitioner. This medical documentation was gathered and supported her claim against the insurer.

A mediation was scheduled with the insurer whereby a settlement was sought. The benefits were reinstated for the future and S.H. was able to move forward with her life not having to worry day after day about financial survival. She was able to concentrate the little amount of energy she had upon her family’ and her own care.
