What Is a Chronic Pain Injury?

The evaluation of chronic pain from an injury requires the expertise of medical and other experts, Joseph A. Nagy, experienced Edmonton injury lawyer

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can result from many different types of injuries (head injury, musculoskeletal injuries). There are various medical definitions that classify the period which you need to suffer from ongoing chronic pain to qualify for compensation.  Some definitions say that a three month period of suffering qualifies as chronic. Other definitions say a 6-month period qualifies as chronic.

Chronic Pain Syndrome

Complications from chronic pain can make the pain worse. Examples include trouble sleeping, job loss, financial problems, ruminating about the pain, guilt, fear, irritability, anxiety, and depression. These problems cause stress which worsens the pain because stress involves the nervous system. This vicious cycle is called chronic pain syndrome.

Chronic Pain and Ability to Function

Chronic pain is measured by your ability to function. It will often affect your present or future employability and also often results in permanent clinical impairment.

I sustained a severe brain injury when I was hit by a car while walking in a back alley. I had no idea what I needed to do because there was no insurance available for the hit and run driver.

Joe informed me that there was a special government fund from which I could collect up to $200,000. As a resident of B.C., there was also up to a million in coverage under my wife’s auto policy known as “underinsured motorist protection.” Joe filed 2 lawsuits and fought very hard with ICBC and the lawyer representing the government fund.

I was very pleased with how Joe represented me and I had complete faith in his ability to ensure I was properly compensated for my brain injury, past and future wage loss, cost of future care and other expenses. After several lowball offers, Joe just kept pushing the case to trial and we eventually settled out of Court. It was a long hard fight but Joe got me the result I wanted. I highly recommend him.
