We Understand That Chronic Pain is Debilitating and Our Lawyers Can Help

We understand how debilitating it can be to never feel comfortable because of chronic pain.  It’s important that you meet with an injury lawyer if you are struggling to cope with this pain and the debilitating changes it can bring.

What Is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain can be defined as an ongoing discomfort resulting from injury or disease that lasts many months or years beyond the expected recovery time. The affliction may have many pre-existing diagnoses, and symptoms are generally severe and prolonged.

Chronic Pain Symptoms

Chronic pain symptoms may include, but are not limited to:

  • Ongoing pain and discomfort
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Anger and irritability
  • Anxiety or depression

Pinpointing the physical aspects of chronic pain symptoms can be challenging from both a medical and legal perspective, as insurance companies require detailed evidence of your chronic pain condition. 

Our lawyers care about getting you on the road to recovery and securing the fair compensation you’re entitled to. That’s why we insist on expert analysis from medical professionals to diagnose your symptoms and ensure that you are properly taken care of medically and financially, as oftentimes people are suffering and are unable to return to work or the quality of life they once had. People who are suffering like this need fair compensation for chronic pain.

Living with chronic pain changes your life.

Living with chronic pain can significantly decrease one’s quality of life. Over time, this may lead to lost wages and psychiatric disorders such as anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. Furthermore, patients suffering from chronic pain have a significantly increased risk of suicide or suicidal attempts. While certain medications can be used to treat or manage chronic pain, they do have potential risks and complications associated with prolonged use.

At David Hollingsworth, we understand the many facets and burdens that chronic pain sufferers have to carry every day. That’s why we are dedicated to helping our clients achieve a fair settlement to help them deal with their diagnosis more effectively.

How a Chronic Pain Lawyer Can Help 

For individuals suffering from chronic pain as a result of an accident, a chronic pain lawyer can help to prove the impairment and sue for damages. Diagnosing chronic pain and proving a claim for compensation is often challenging, so hiring an experienced law firm, like our team at David Hollingsworth, is key to success.

How it Works 

In case of an incident that leads to chronic pain, follow these steps to increase your chances of recovering fair compensation:

  1. Seek immediate medical attention. As soon as the injury occurs, ensure that you seek immediate medical care to minimize the chances of lingering chronic pain after your initial injury recovery period.
  2. Document the incident. If you can do so, gather all possible information about the incident: write down the names and contact information of any witnesses, take photographs of the scene, and preserve any relevant physical evidence. This information can be used to build your case later on.
  3. Preserve medical records. Keep all the documents and medical records obtained throughout your diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. In the skillful hands of our chronic pain lawyers, these records can be used to prove the ongoing effects of the injury.
  4. Keep a pain journal. A pain journal is a key piece of evidence in proving chronic pain injuries. Document your pain level, emotional distress, and any other negative effects resulting from the incident as frequently as possible.
  5. Consult a chronic pain lawyer. Chronic pain can be difficult to pinpoint quickly but don’t be afraid to consult a chronic pain lawyer even after some time has passed since the injury. There is a statute of limitations on filing a claim from the date of the injury, and our team can help ensure you meet it promptly.
  6. Follow medical recommendations and prioritize your care. Following all medical recommendations will not only help to support your rehabilitation but will also strengthen your legal claim.
