Why do I need to see so many doctors as part of my legal claim?

This blog was written thanks to the expertise of our team, including Alex Cohen, Philip Cohen and Steven Akerman, leading experts in compensation claims for chronic pain and serious injury.

Any chronic pain disorder, especially CRPS can be a severely debilitating condition and one which can have devastating consequences on your quality of life, regardless of the cause.

Pain rarely occurs in isolation. Other symptoms of chronic pain sufferers can include sleep difficulties, fatigue, lethargy, muscular aches, reduced stamina and mood changes. When faced with the emotional toll of dealing with chronic pain, it’s perhaps not surprising that many people suffer related psychological problems, such as anxiety and depression. These conditions by themselves can be extremely disabling but when coupled with pain, they can be extremely incapacitating, affecting not just the ability to work but also personal relationships and family life.

At Brian Barr Solicitors we appreciate that living with chronic pain can be exhausting and the last thing you want to do is see yet another doctor as part of your claim process. However, each medical expert will be able to give evidence as to your condition and how this impacts your life. From pain relief specialists and orthopaedic doctors, to neurologists and psychiatrists, Brian Barr will ensure that we compile as much evidence as possible to ensure that you have the funds to help ease your situation.

Even if we cannot cure your condition which we would all prefer, these reports are essential in securing the highest levels of compensation to ease the difficulties caused by chronic pain as much as possible. The more evidence to support you, the better.

As specialist chronic pain solicitors, we will act on your behalf to handle your case in a caring and professional manner to ensure you receive maximum compensation. If you’re considering changing your chronic pain solicitor, you can talk to one of our personal injury specialists to discuss your specific claim. We regularly have cases transferred to us because of our specialist knowledge of chronic pain contact, so even if you’re just looking for some advice and guidance on what to do next, we’re here to help. The sooner you speak to us the better – you only get one shot at this, so make it count.

If you are suffering an injury due to clinical negligence or are suffering from fibromyalgia, CRPS, or any chronic pain condition as a result of an accident that was not your fault, and even if you have an existing claim, get in touch with Brian Barr Solicitors to see if we can assist.
