Chronic Pain Injuries
Chronic pain brought on by the onset of traumatic injury can change one’s life dramatically. Even simple tasks like moving, sitting, standing or sleeping can become very difficult and cause a tremendous amount of pain. These types of injuries normally require months of therapy and quite often, the body never heals itself to the way it was pre-accident.
The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.” Pain is subjective in nature and is defined by the person experiencing it, and the medical community’s understanding of chronic pain now includes the impact that the mind has in processing and interpreting pain signals.
If you suffer from chronic pain that was caused by an accident at least 6 months ago and prevents you from working, you may be entitled to damages. Haber Lawyers has lawyers that will be pleased to discuss your rights with you without cost or obligation.
