Chronic pain claims

At Admiral Law we understand that pain is not just a symptom; it is a barrier to so much more in life.

Pain can be impossible to define, and on occasions similarly difficult to diagnose. It may be related to a specific, identifiable injury (such as a fracture) and will resolve over time; but likewise, pain can be chronic, will persist well beyond the expected recovery period and even worsen over time. The reason for this continuance may be difficult to determine.

Pain can be associated with a range of other symptoms including mood changes, fatigue and sleep disturbance and if left untreated, can have marked impact on a person’s life. This can result in the most routine of tasks seem like a mountain to climb.

The experience of pain varies from person to person and no one person’s pain is the same. There will be good days and bad days and we understand the importance of providing a bespoke service, with treatment and rehabilitation packages that are tailored to your needs. It is not one size fits all. Chronic pain comes in many different shapes and sizes, from well-defined disorders such as Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to more generally, ongoing pain which has persisted with no %p identifiable cause or reason.

At Admiral Law we understand the importance of placing you at the centre of what we do and working with you every step of the way. Our focus is to give our clients the best quality of life possible and we do this by working with leading medical experts and treatment providers, to ensure you achieve the right outcome for you both now and into the future.

How will my claim be funded?

You may have legal expenses insurance attached to your car or home insurance policy. We can make enquiries to see if any such legal expense insurance exists and can be used to fund your claim. If you do not have existing legal expenses insurance we can enter into a Conditional Fee Agreement (a no win no fee agreement) and a bespoke policy of after the event legal expenses insurance. Under the terms of a no win no fee agreement, you may be charged a success fee.

How long will my claim take?

We aim to conclude your claim as soon as is possible. The length of time this takes depends very much on the severity of the injury and the duration of your recovery. It is important that we ensure that you are recovered completely or have a final prognosis for your future in order to calculate any resulting losses before attempting to settle your claim and importantly the willingness of the defendant to accept fault.

How much compensation will I receive?

The consequences of the injuries or illnesses will vary between individuals. The amount of compensation you could receive will be personal to you and depend upon a number of factors such as the severity of the injury, extent of any continuing symptoms and the level of impact on ability to work.

Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in accurately valuing claims to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
