According to the woman, she claims that exposure to WiFi and other electronic devices like the TV or her phone have caused her severe discomfort. Prior to this, the French courts have basically ruled against giving out disability allowance to previous claims of EHS, so safe to say that this win will set a pretty big precedent for future cases.

In fact her allergy to WiFi is so severe that she is forced to live in a barn by the countryside, far away from WiFi, or at least in an area where WiFi isn’t as common as say the city or even the suburbs. What this means is that she will now be granted £500 a month in disability allowance that is legally entitled to collect.
