Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME)

Distressed LadyWe are specialist lawyers who act for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME sufferers throughout England and Wales.

What is ME?

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or ME as it is often called, is a chronic condition in which sufferers have to endure symptoms including profound and overwhelming fatigue, muscle pain and mental fogginess as well as problems with concentration. Unlike many other conditions, CFS does not improve significantly with prolonged rest.

What causes ME?

No-one knows exactly what causes ME, but there are several theories including contracting a viral infection, sleep disturbances, physical and emotional trauma and brain abnormalities.

How we can help

If you suspect that your ME has been triggered by or has deteriorated as a result of an accident not your fault, Brian Barr Solicitors’ expert team can act for you in your claim against the party who caused your injury. In addition, if you have the benefit of an ill health retirement pension or an insurance policy with critical illness cover (often referred to as total permanent disablement entitlement), we can also assist with those claims and give you all the advice and assistance that you need.
