Chronic pain claims are some of the hardest to pursue. To start with, since chronic pain is only considered a symptom (and not a condition) it can only be diagnosed by analysing the patient’s reports, which may sometimes be inaccurate. At Grillo Law, we are happy to discuss your situation if you suffer chronic pain as a result of an accident that was caused by someone’s negligent actions. Our catastrophic injury lawyer in Toronto can meet with you for a free consultation to discuss your case and guide you on the available legal options.
Chronic pain has several harmful consequences including:
- Mental issues: Research shows that people living with chronic pain are more likely to develop psychological disorders and are at a higher risk of suicide than those without chronic pain.
- Impact on sleep: Patients living with chronic pain experience high levels of sleep disturbance which is directly related to the severity of the pain.
- Impaired sexual function: Chronic pain patients experience issues such as fear of worsening pain or fatigue that may result in sexual dysfunction.
- High medical costs: Managing chronic pain is costly. It is estimated that millions of dollars are spent on chronic pain every year in Canada.
- Quality of life: Individuals living with chronic pain are said to have a poorer quality of life than those suffering from chronic illnesses like heart disease.
- Health risks: When left untreated, chronic pain can result in health issues such as immune dysfunction and increased morbidity.
Possible Forms of Compensation for Chronic Pain
You need proper medical care to treat and manage chronic pain. This condition can affect your ability to work and continue with your social life as you did before the injury. You can approach our chronic pain lawyer in Toronto to help you file a claim. The different forms of compensation that you may qualify for include:
- Disability benefits: You may be entitled to long- or short-term disability benefits if your chronic pain is as a result of an injury that has rendered you disabled.
