Ottawa injury lawyer David Hollingsworth discusses compensation for chronic pain.

What is chronic pain? Chronic pain often results from  accidents and  traumatic injuries. It can be the one of the most devastating injuries and yet it is also one of the most difficult to show. Like a brain injury, chronic pain is invisible.  There are no broken bones, scars or surgeries. Also, some of the difficultly with showing chronic pain is that each individual is different and the levels of chronic pain vary significantly. Truthfully, only the individual trying to live through the chronic pain understands how difficult and painful it really is. Chronic pain can be life altering.  Most of our clients suffering from chronic pain are unable to function. They cannot work and they are certainly not enjoying their quality of life. Due to the serious nature of chronic pain and it’s effect on the individual, it is usually considered to be a long-term disability.

When a personal injury client comes to us and describes their pain and quality of life after an accident, we immediately have them assessed by some of the best doctors for chronic pain, chronic pain specialists and chronic pain rehabilitation specialists.  It’s not only important that we as personal injury lawyers fight for maximum compensation for our clients, we also want to make sure that they are receiving all the support needed in the hopes of returning to the best quality of life possible.  People who suffer from chronic pain may never fully heal.  Sadly, that is the reality.
