Chronic Pain - cassidyHEA injury law

Chronic pain is any type of pain that persists longer than the usual healing process for an injury or a disease, as determined by a medical professional. Diagnosing and treating chronic pain can be challenging. Chronic pain may prevent you from living or working normally. You may be entitled to compensation if you suffer from chronic pain following an accident, illness, or injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence.

Chronic pain can take many forms. Common causes of chronic pain include injuries to the neck, back, spine, or any joints in the body such as the knee, ankle, and shoulder. However, chronic pain may affect any part of the body, from disc tears and injuries to phantom pains following amputation of a limb. Some common symptoms and health problems related to chronic pain include:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee and hip pain
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Many of these conditions may require lifelong medical care as well as mental health treatment in order to address some of the long-term mental and emotional effects of the injury. Chronic pain can lead to depression and other mental and emotional disorders, in addition to the physical pain. Many people who suffer from chronic pain also find that it takes a toll on their employment situation; they may be limited in their ability to work in certain jobs (or even to work at all). Thus, chronic pain can have serious ramifications for a person’s career and earning potential.

If you or someone you care about is suffering from chronic pain following an injury, accident, or illness, a qualified and experienced chronic pain lawyer can help you assess your legal options and determine a course of action to seek the compensation you need to handle your symptoms. Chronic pain cases can present complex legal questions, but a skilled personal injury lawyer can help investigate your case and represent you in dealing with insurance companies, the court system, and the parties who caused your injury.
