Our serious injury solicitors and lawyers have worked with both adults and children who have sustained a chronic pain injury following road traffic collisions, accidents at work, medical negligence and assaults.
Due to our expertise in serious injury claims we feature in the solicitor’s directories for Headway – The Brain Injury Association, Spinal Injuries Association and the UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum.
Our goal is to support our clients to make the best possible recovery so they can return to leading full and active lives. If you or a family member have been injured or you would like a second opinion on an ongoing case, please contact us.
We work hard to provide a complete legal service and will look to secure early interim payments as part of the legal claim to optimise your recovery.
Even when someone is only partly to blame you may still be able to claim so it is important to get legal advice from an experienced solicitor familiar with this area of law.
Chronic pain can have a dramatic and life changing impact not only for the person injured but also for those that are close to them. Whatever level of injury it is important that you receive the very best treatment, rehabilitation and care as quickly as possible.
Impact of chronic pain
Chronic pain is defined by the NHS as pain that carries on for longer than 12 weeks despite medication or treatment. It is common following traumatic events and serious injuries. It can cause amongst other things restricted mobility, sleep issues and psychological issues.
The British Pain Society states that chronic pain affects more than two fifths of the UK’s population meaning that around 28 million adults in the UK are living with pain that has lasted for three months or longer.
The initial impact can be devastating and debilitating for the individual concerned. Often they will require psychological input, rehabilitation and other therapies to assist with recovery. This will often be required using a multi-disciplinary approach.
Because of the wide array of symptoms from chronic pain, lack of mobility and psychological injury it is important to gain access to the very best medical experts who will assess you and provide their recommendations for treatment, rehabilitation and care.
We can also help to access expert opinion in order to identify the right rehabilitation, care needs both now and in the future, accommodation and aids/equipment that can be provided to you to assist in your daily living.
Depending on the nature and severity of the chronic pain, we also employ experts who can advise on any aids and adaptations that you will need.
Rehabilitation and support
We work with the existing specialist rehabilitation providers and the NHS to ensure that your ongoing care and treatment is as continuous and straightforward as possible.
It is important at this most difficult of times that you are able to gain access to the right kind of help and advice. Indeed, rehabilitation is an important part of the recovery process and therefore you need to gain access to appropriate rehabilitation as soon as possible.
We work closely with a database of medical experts who can provide assistance with physiotherapy, psychotherapy and other means of rehabilitation to assist in getting you as well as possible as soon as possible.
Depending on the severity of the chronic pain you may require long-term support for either part of or throughout your life.
The local authority may well provide some care and support to you and your family or any carers. However, funding may well be available through your personal injury claim.
The aim of this support is to enable you and your family to live as independently as possible. The level of support will be assessed carefully to try and reflect your long-term needs.
Our aims are to support you through the legal process but also make sure that you or your loved one achieves the best possible outcome.
If we deal with your compensation claim, we will do so on a completely No-Win No-Fee basis.
Do not judge the circumstances of your own case as your solicitor can best advise whether any compensation is recoverable. We are recognised as leading experts in dealing with cases involving chronic pain.
Our Medical Negligence and Serious Injury (MNSI) is led by a number of highly experienced solicitors, some of whom have over 20 years expertise in dealing with personal injury and medical negligence claims.
