Insurance companies (and often medical specialists) will usually assume that symptoms from certain types of accidents should heal within a set period of time, and will rarely make allowances for the fact that HMS can cause symptoms to be more severe and more long lasting than would ordinarily be the case.
As we have knowledge of the condition and have experience of dealing with such claims, we can ensure that we obtain the right sort of medical evidence for you, in order to make sure that you obtain the amount of compensation which you deserve. In one 2011 case, for example, we were able to obtain compensation of nearly 10 times the original settlement offer, directly as a result of our experience in dealing with hypermobility claims.
We can also recommend treatment from local physiotherapists who are experienced in dealing with people with hypermobility syndrome, where this is required. Furthermore, we can ask the insurance company to cover the cost of this treatment, where appropriate.
For more information about this condition, we recommend that you visit the Hypermobility Syndrome Association's website.
