Chronic Pain Issues And Personal Injury Claims

If you live with a chronic pain issue like fibromyalgia or complex regional pain syndrome, you know how difficult life can be. You probably also know about the challenges of diagnosing and treating these issues. Unfortunately, those problems can also come into play when filing a personal injury claim.

Differentiating between a new or exacerbated injury and a previous condition is not easy, which is why it is important to work with an experienced firm. At The Law Offices of Mitchell Clair, we have helped others with chronic pain issues seek compensation for injuries that were caused or made worse by an accident of some kind. With 30 years of experience, lawyer Mitchell Clair knows what it takes to prove that you deserve compensation for your injuries.

Proving Damages With Chronic Pain Issues

In order to obtain damages for injuries caused by an accident, you have to prove the extent of the injuries. Normally, this is done through medical records and other physical evidence of injuries that did not exist before the accident.

When you have a chronic pain issue that existed before the accident, you have to differentiate between the pain caused by the pre-existing chronic pain and the pain caused by the accident. For our past clients, this has often looked like a pain level of three to four before an accident and six to seven after an accident.

Attorney Mitchell Clair understands the complexities of these cases. He also knows from experience that it is possible to successfully demonstrate a change in pain level or a new injury even when chronic pain was already part of your life. Whether you live with fibromyalgia, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, or another type of chronic pain, we can help.
