Chronic Pain Claims
One of the life-changing conditions that can be the most difficult to come to terms with is chronic pain syndrome (CPS). The effects are problematic not only for the people who endure it but also for family and friends as well. This condition can typically last for three months or more and will attack both the mental and physical health of the sufferer.
We understand how much of an impact CPS can have and how uniquely harrowing it can be. Every case is diverse and has to be treated so. We have had many clients who have been affected by CPS and have successfully claimed after workplace and road traffic incidents.
Our expert team understands the importance of having the correct conditions for you to cope with this problem, and we have links with specialist rehabilitation professionals such as nurses, pain consultants, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists. We can provide real help for your CPS condition and also deliver a claim to make certain that you are 100 per cent adequately compensated for what you have been forced to go through. Why suffer alone when legal and medical help is close at hand?
Making a claim:
The first step in the process is an initial meeting. We will discuss your particular situation and make a decision as to whether it has been caused as a result of negligence by somebody else. If we consider that you have a case, we will start collecting expert evidence to support a claim and establish the exact sequence of events that led up to the accident.
It is at this stage that specialist care is sought, which is a vital part of any chronic pain claim process. While the case is being prepared, you will be put in touch with top medical care professionals. A calculation is worked out about the amount of compensation required. The figures will be based on:
- Amount of pain suffered
- Cost of medical treatment
- Loss of earnings
- Future ongoing care
Because this calculation is far from easy, it is important that you use a legal team that has experience, so that the compensation is at the correct level.
When the figures have been worked out, a settlement will be negotiated with the people responsible for the injuries. If no agreement can be found, then court proceedings will start. It is, however, important to understand that in many cases, an amicable agreement will be come to, without using the court process.
Whatever the outcome of the dialogue, you can rest assured that we will always be available to talk you through the situation. We are aware that many CPS cases can be complicated, so where possible we will attempt to negotiate an interim payment for ongoing medical help.
Time limits for a claim:
The majority of cases are limited to a three-year period to make a claim after developing CPS. For children, this time limit is up to age 18, or a period of three years after. If you want to see if you are within these limits, then give us a call for some advice.
A lot of our cases are fought on a No-Win-No-Fee agreement, and this is something we can advise you about at the initial meeting. This means that you have no financial risk in making a compensation claim, and only pay if you win. Various options can be looked at, but we will do this on an individual basis and always advise the best one for our clients, from a financial point of view.
If you have any doubt about your options, then give us a call for some friendly and professional advice.
