Chronic Pain Compensation – The Process Explained

Chronic pain is a debilitating, life changing condition that seriously affects your lifestyle, as well as those closest to you. To achieve the chronic pain compensation you deserve, you need to thoroughly understand the process involved. Follow our step by step plan to make sure that you get it right.


First and foremost, choosing the right lawyer to fight your case is a crucial step in order to receive the chronic pain compensation you deserve. Chronic pain symptoms, and causes, are extremely case-specific and it’s imperative that you select a solicitor who not only understands and empathises with your condition, yet is also a specialist in this particular area of law.

At Brian Barr, our team of qualified experts take pride in delivering a warm and supportive service to each and every client. Furthermore, we endeavour to understand your condition thoroughly to ensure you receive the fairest compensation deal possible.

After an initial telephone conversation, the next step will be to assess and work out whether you have a case for a chronic pain compensation claim. At Brian Barr, we understand that continuity is important, so a lead solicitor will be assigned to your specific case and will work with you every step of the way.

Part of this empathy and understanding is appreciating that someone suffering from chronic pain would like to know as quickly as possible whether or not we can assist you with your claim. In the vast majority of enquiries, we can give you an answer to this question at the end of our very first telephone conversation. In those instances where a little more time is needed, we aim to get back to you with a response within 24 to 48 hours.

Should you be happy to instruct us and utilise our expertise, we will take the opportunity to outline the various funding options. Don’t worry about financing, in many instances we work on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.

Before putting forward your claim, we will fully discuss and agree upon the compensation claim level necessary. We will take the time to discuss pain level, loss of earnings, medical evidence and medical treatment up until your claim as well as for the future. We will negotiate your settlement and if necessary will take your case to court. However, rest assured that this is rare as most companies would rather settle outside of court. We walk you through every step of the process, so you can focus solely on your treatment and getting better.

If you have any questions regarding the chronic pain compensation procedure, please feel free to call one of our experts on 0800 123 0003 or fill in our contact form.
