Compensation for Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain is an injury our lawyers see frequently. It often results from an accident and can be debilitating and life-altering. Every person who suffers from chronic pain will experience varying amounts of pain.  Every accident is unique and our lawyers understand that each and every one of our clients has a unique set of circumstances surrounding their accident and injuries.

Accident Scenario:

Our team of lawyers worked closely with our client to ensure she received maximum compensation for her injuries.  Our client was a 39-year-old single woman from Cornwall, Ontario. One day, she was a driver in a car and was ” T-Boned ” by another vehicle.

Injuries Resulting From Accident: 

Our client suffered severe personal injuries including chronic pain, post-concussion symptoms anxiety and psychological difficulties as the result of the accident. These are injuries that are not to be taken lightly and require a serious plan to be put in place and that plan required maximum compensation.

Compensation For Dental Injury and Psychological Injury:

After the mandatory mediation session, our lawyers were able to get the insurance company to settle without having to go to court. Not dragging this out was crucial to our client.  She received $200,000 from the tort action and another $24,000 from her Ontario Accident Benefits Insurer. While this $224,000 in compensation will never erase the damage that has been done, it can help her adjust to a new life with rehabilitation, benefits and support.
