Most of our clients have been injured with the expectation their injuries will settle, resolve and life will go back to normal. These injuries vary from whiplash, soft tissue injuries (back, neck, shoulder), shoulder/arm/wrist injuries, crush injuries, hand injuries, leg injuries, amputation, head injuries or multiple injuries. These could be breaks, fractures or torn ligaments/muscles. Our experience is extensive and we have in depth knowledge of many conditions and injuries.
Instructing the right people
Chronic Pain is when your pain persists even after your injury may have healed. Your treating consultant or GP can't explain why your pain persists and nothing works to relieve this. Maybe your current solicitor does not know why you have not recovered and has no solutions to help. Most of our clients come to us when they have been discharged from their consultant and are left desperate for answers.
This is when you need a specialist lawyer who knows what your ongoing symptoms mean and which expert to instruct to help you reach a diagnosis. Otherwise you risk settling your claim for less leaving you with no support and future protection.
"Chronic pain conditions are not well known or understood by many doctors and it is even less so for lawyers. Access to support and treatment for chronic pain conditions is incredibly difficult to access with many hurdles to overcome, this is why it is important to have a good lawyer involved who can arrange interim payments to get you seen by the right people."
