Are you eligible to claim compensation?
You may be eligible to claim chronic pain compensation if your pain and problems are related to some form of negligence.
This could be from:
- Repetitive strain injuries at work, which may affect the back or the joints like knees and elbows;
- Medical negligence mistakes or errors that leave you with permanent problems and complications;
- A road accident that leaves you with a chronic pain condition or syndrome;
- Any other slip, trip or fall where you are left with ongoing issues and problems.
For reparative strain injuries, we need to prove that there was more that your employer could, and should, have done to have prevented the injury. If you had put them on notice of a problem and they failed to take action and this led to the issues, that’s when you may have a valid claim. Or, it could be that such an injury has developed because of unsafe working practices. Workplace health and safety regulations when it comes to risk assessments, work equipment and personal protective equipment can be strict. If we can demonstrate that these regulations have been broken, you may have a case.
In other scenarios like road accidents or medical negligence, if you have been left with a chronic pain syndrome or complication as a result of an accident or an incident, we may be able to factor this into a case.
How we calculate chronic pain compensation amounts
When it comes to how we value chronic pain compensation amounts and pay-outs, it will usually come down to medical evidence. We can instruct a private expert to provide a report for us that can detail the extent and severity of the suffering you endure, and how this may affect you for the rest of your life. We can then use a combination of our own extensive experience, as well as official guidelines and precedents from settled claims, to work out how much compensation you could be owed.
It’s not an exact science, especially when it comes to chronic injuries. The experts can only give their best opinion, so it can take a great deal of work with you to allow us to properly prepare a case. Sometimes, more than one expert may be required as well.
