Chronic Pain Can Stem From Car Accidents


February 24, 2016

Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for longer than six months following any accident or injury. It comes in many forms, ranging in severity from mild to severe and affecting nearly any part of the body. Those who experience chronic pain stemming from a car accident might find that nearly every aspect of their lives is impacted by the constant pain.

At Montlick and Associates, Attorneys at Law, we understand that chronic pain can take a serious toll on accident victims. For some, there is no effective treatment for the constant pain and patients can feel helpless. They can also become frustrated or angry, and might be unable to resume work or carry out life functions. Our firm fights for chronic pain sufferers to receive the compensation they deserve following a serious accident.

Chronic Pain Can Affect An Accident Victims Whole Life

Chronic pain is a tremendous and sadly all too common problem for car accident victims. Those who experience chronic pain can also suffer from, among other symptoms:

• Mood changes
• Stress
• Sleep disturbances
• Irritability
• Depression
• Anxiety
• Fatigue
• A weak immune system
• Fear and homelessness
• Withdrawal from friends and family

For many accident victims with chronic pain, work tasks become impossible. Continual pain could prevent accident victims from making it to work every day and could make it too painful to perform critical work functions. Accident victims could find themselves facing the imminent loss of their job due to chronic pain.

There is Hope for Those Suffering From Chronic Pain

If you are experiencing chronic pain as a result of a car accident, talk to your doctor and your attorney as soon as possible. Your doctor might be able to recommend innovative therapies that could relieve or minimize your pain. Medications and surgeries can also decrease your pain or even cure it. These treatments can be expensive, however, so accident victims will need the help of their attorney in seeking compensation for the medical treatment they need from the at-fault driver responsible for the accident.

Chronic pain can at times be further alleviated through psychological counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy. By treating the cognitive issues that so often accompany the pain, accident victims can improve their conditions.

Any accident victim suffering from chronic pain should speak to their attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can examine the facts and circumstances of what happened as well as take the necessary steps to obtain compensation from the at-fault person or party.
