Chronic Pain FAQs
What Is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain is any pain that lasts for three months or longer. It’s not abnormal to feel pain after an accident or injury. However, if you are experiencing pain that is lasting for weeks, months or years, there is something wrong. Unfortunately, you can experience chronic pain anywhere in your body that can range from mild to incredibly painful to the point that it lowers your quality of life and abilities to complete regular day to day activities. Chronic pain can be caused by a number of things. Sometimes it’s due to the chemicals in your brain that help your body heal after an injury not working properly. Other times, chronic pain can be caused by damaged nerves or from a completely unknown reason.
Why Is It Important To Talk To A Chronic Pain Lawyer?
Unfortunately, chronic pain and soft tissue injuries can be extremely difficult to prove, making it difficult to get the compensation you deserve, either in court or from your insurance provider. These injuries are difficult to diagnose definitively, and therefore are often diagnosed based on signs of trauma. Therefore, insurers hesitate to pay for treatment of these injuries or compensation for lost wages, especially when no other injuries are present. Therefore, it’s important that you have an experienced lawyer on your side to fight for the care and compensation that you deserve. In order to prove your chronic pain, you’ll need to document all of your symptoms, limitations and difficulties that you’re experiencing. You must also regularly meet with doctors and other medical specialists who can run tests, document your symptoms, and keep a record of your medical progress, or lack thereof. De Rose Lawyers can help you gather all the important information you need to plead your case, so you can focus on your recovery.
How Long Do You Have To Pursue A Claim?
It’s important to meet with a lawyer as soon as you’re able to when all of the details of your accident and injury are fresh. However, note that you have up to two years from the time of your injury to pursue a legal claim. If the injury happened to someone under the age of 18, then the two-year time limit doesn’t begin until the child turns 18. However, some exceptions to the law are in the cases of slip and falls. If your injuries are the result of a slip and fall on public property, the law is different. You only have 10 days to provide written notice to the municipality where you were injured. If the fall happened on private property, then you have 60 days to provide notice.
What Is The Average Payout For Chronic Pain?
Wondering what is the average payout for chronic pain? This is a difficult question to answer without knowing the specifics relating to your individual injury. Ultimately, the compensation you receive will be based on the severity of your injuries, the quality of evidence you produce, and details relating to who was at fault.
