Chronic pain may not be as visible to others as a fracture or spinal cord injury. However, the effect chronic pain has on an individual can be no less drastic. Chronic pain can severely inhibit an individual's ability to work and live his or her life. Because of the unseen nature of chronic pain, however, many people have difficulty obtaining proper compensation to seek proper treatment or therapy to manage their pain.
We Take Your Injury Seriously
At Farrell Law Group, we will stand up for your rights. We understand the serious effects chronic pain can have, and we represent women and men in Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and southern Ontario who suffer from it.
Unlike other injuries, chronic pain cannot be diagnosed by an X-ray, MRI or CT scan. Symptoms may seem subjective to outside observers, but to those who suffer from chronic pain, they are very real. We take your injury seriously, and we care about helping you overcome it. We will refer you to top-class health care providers who can accurately diagnose the source of your pain and work to help you recover.
Common Causes of Chronic Pain
Each case is unique and many chronic pain cases are the result of several factors. Some of the common causes of chronic pain include:
- Past soft tissue injuries that did not heal well or fully heal
- Broken bones or fractures that did not heal properly
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Arthritis or carpal tunnel
- Outside stressors such as a physically demanding job or emotional pressures
- Depression and other mental conditions
- Past psychological trauma
