Chronic Pain Claims

Advice and assistance from Cohen Cramer

Chronic Pain Claims: Here at Cohen Cramer, we pride ourselves on our ability to recognise chronic pain cases and achieve the best results for our clients.

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain is something beyond the pain one feels as a result of an accident and is generally regarded as a pain that lasts beyond the normal, expected recovery period for the injury sustained and that triggered the condition.

There is a wide school of thought as to what causes chronic pain but essentially it appears to be the bodies failure to ‘shut down’ the production of the pain. When you suffer an injury the nerve receptors alert the brain. The body then takes steps to negate the pain.  The failure to shut down these ‘nerve messages’ means that the brain thinks the body is constantly injured and so keeps replying with pain signals.

Chronic pain can result in:

  • permanent pain either continuously or on a periodic basis
  • sleep issues, as a result of the pain, resulting in excessive tiredness
  • psychological issues caused by the impact upon the life of the individual

Claims for chronic pain are not separate but part of your main claim. You may be involved in an accident at work in which you sustain an injury to your back which eventually develops into chronic pain. Your claim is still for the accident at work with chronic pain being a symptom of the accident.

With cases involving chronic pain, the pain can range from low level to completely debilitating or anywhere in between with there being no recognised pattern as to how it affects people. All that is certain is that it can be permanent and very restrictive.

Treatment of chronic pain

Because there are so many possible causes of chronic pain there are many variations on the treatment available.

One of the problems with claiming for chronic pain is that, because there are no identifiable breaks or injuries, the third-party insurers will dispute its existence and make allegations of exaggeration.

It is for this reason that you need to instruct solicitors with the knowledge and experience to deal with your chronic pain claim.

The success of a case can often hinge on an expert’s ability to explain the symptoms and any psychological influences.
