Chronic Pain Syndrome

At a glance:

Chronic pain conditions can occur as a result of substandard healthcare treatment which can have a long-lasting impact on a patient’s life, as well as on their family and relationships. Investigations and further medical treatment can assist to manage chronic pain conditions. We can provide legal advice to those patients who believe they may have developed chronic pain conditions as a result of substandard healthcare and can help them obtain further care to assist them.


What is Chronic Pain?

Pain is a body’s normal reaction to an injury or illness. When a person’s body heals, the pain ceases. However, for many the pain continues and the pain can be persistent or recurring after the cause is gone. When pain lasts for three to six months or more, it is known as chronic pain.

Chronic pain can have a huge effect on a person’s life and on their family and relationships. If this has been caused by someone else’s negligence, such as a member of the healthcare profession, doctor, surgeon or dentist, in administering substandard treatment, then it may mean you have suffered much more harm than the original condition for which treatment was sought. In any legal claim for negligence it would be necessary to show that the injury was a direct result of medical malpractice.

Long lasting pain has been linked with further complications such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, poor sleep, and other psychological or emotional reactions.

Fibromyalgia is a common chronic pain condition that can involve fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, and sleep disruption.


Further help with chronic pain

Investigations into chronic pain can be carried out including x-rays, MRI scans, and nerve conduction studies. Further medical care and treatment may assist in the patient’s management of a chronic pain condition.

If you believe you may have developed a chronic pain condition as a result of substandard treatment, it is important to get legal advice from specialist solicitors who understand the unique nature of chronic pain claims. In any legal claim for negligence it would be necessary to show that the injury was a direct result of medical malpractice.
