Chronic Pain

If you have been injured in an accident, you may be experiencing chronic pain. This is localised pain, such as in your neck, back or one of your limbs, that you have experienced for three to six months, or even longer. Some people may also be diagnosed with fibromyalgia, which is chronic pain throughout your entire body.

Chronic pain can be difficult not only to treat, but also for a doctor to diagnose. The pain persists after the physical injuries have been healed, so it if often not clear what is causing the pain and discomfort.

People often experience chronic pain following a motor vehicle accident or a slip-and-fall. Our Personal Injury Group has experience at helping individuals experiencing chronic pain to get the compensation they are entitled to.

Given it is difficult to find physical evidence of chronic pain, it is often necessary to provide other evidence. This may include a “Pain Diary”, medical records, and testimony from friends and family. Fortunately, Canadian courts recognise chronic pain as a genuine condition, so there are legal avenues if you need to make a claim. However, chronic pain cases are far from straightforward, and you will need legal assistance from lawyers with specialised expertise in this condition.
