Chronic Pain Claims FAQs

What is Chronic Pain?2023-01-17T17:45:33+00:00

Chronic pain conditions have only been recognised relatively recently. They are often difficult to diagnose as GPs cannot detect anything specifically ‘wrong’ with the patient. Yet, they are very real and represent a serious diagnosis of long-term pain and suffering – possibly arising after an injury or accident.

As well as specific incidents, chronic pain can also be caused by medical conditions such as:

  • Chronic Pain Syndrome
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Surgical trauma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
  • Somatoform Disorder

If you are suffering from chronic pain, it is essential to seek specialist medical care, as well as expert legal support if you believe it stems from an accident that wasn’t your fault.

What are the symptoms of Chronic Pain?2023-01-17T17:46:51+00:00

Symptoms of chronic pain can vary on a case by case basis, but they include:

  • joint pain
  • muscle aches
  • burning pain
  • fatigue
  • sleep problems
  • loss of stamina and flexibility, due to decreased activity
  • mood problems, including depression, anxiety, and irritability
Why should I seek legal advice or pursue a Chronic Pain claim?2023-01-17T17:47:27+00:00

When suffering from chronic pain, it can be difficult to convince specialists that there is really something wrong due to the lack of apparent cause. This can cause anxiety in sufferers that they will not be believed.

At Truth Legal, we understand that chronic pain is very real. When caused by an accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve compensation. Our team of expert Personal Injury lawyers are here to support your chronic pain claim to achieve just that.

How much could my Chronic Pain claim be worth?2023-01-17T17:48:37+00:00

Claim values for chronic pain can vary widely and depends on factors such as the level of pain you experience and the impact it has on your quality of life. However, there are some guidelines from the Judicial College to provide an estimate of how much a Chronic Pain claim might be worth.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome

Moderate: £28,030 to £52,500.

Severe: £52,500 to £84,010.

Other Pain Disorders

Moderate: £21,070 to £38,490

Severe: £42,130 to £62,990

Additional factors to the value of your claim might be other expenses such as loss of earnings, past and future medical expenses or treatment costs, additional transport expenses, and adaptions made to homes or vehicles.

What are the elements to a Chronic Pain claim?2023-01-17T17:49:55+00:00

Chronic pain claims require a medical diagnosis of the issue as symptoms may occur months or even years after the injury. This is why it is important to gain the support of a medical specialist in this area.

If your chronic pain was caused by an accident at work, our Personal Injury solicitors can bolster your claim by obtaining evidence from witnesses, and potentially employer records of the incident. It is also important to have a clear timeline of the events leading up to, and after the incident took place. This allows for the finding of negligence which caused the accident to occur and prove the cause of your chronic pain.

What kinds of accidents can lead to Chronic Pain?2023-01-17T17:50:40+00:00

Chronic pain can stem from a range of different accidents. Symptoms can occur months or even years after the incident occurred. Truth Legal has dealt with chronic pain claims after:

‘No Win No Fee’ chronic pain claims

Funding optionsIn most situations, Truth Legal can use a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement to fund your claim. This is a useful way to avoid the risk of paying legal fees if your case is unsuccessful, as, in all but very rare circumstances, you will not have to pay our fees if we do not recover compensation for you.

If we are successful, some money will be deducted from your compensation award to pay our fees in part. Most fees, however, are recovered from the party you are claiming from (or more commonly their insurers). This is the normal way in which ‘No Win No Fee’ Agreements operate.

Truth Legal always try to offer ‘No Win, No Fee’ Agreements wherever possible.

We will discuss funding with you in full before your claim begins. However, if you have any queries about our fees, please get in touch so that we can explain matters further.
