What Is Chronic Pain Injury?

The condition is characterised in the medical field by a significant pain lasting more than 6 months or a pain which goes beyond what would be a ‘normal’ period of healing for a given condition. There is often no definite cause related to it and medical research continues.

The pain can be experienced as a general all over feeling while others say the pain is more specific to a certain area of the body. Equally, some pain can be constant while others can be intermittent.

Patients can develop unexplained pain which could have started with a minor injury like a strain or torn muscle. If you suffer from Chronic Pain Injury then it could mean you have suffered as the result of someone else’s negligent behaviour, in which case it’s possible you could make a chronic pain injury claim.


One of the most frustrating and difficult aspects of the condition is that it can be misunderstood by some professionals including some medics. This sometimes causing further stress and anxiety for victims and the people around them.

Some of the symptoms involved can be confusing and unexpected and not every case is the same. Some of the problems below can feature in many chronic pain injury claims:

  • Psychological disorders
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Anger problems

Treatment for Chronic Pain Injury can include either physiotherapy or psychotherapy, sometimes both. On some occasions, it is necessary to seek the assistance of a pain management specialist.

Individuals can suffer from chronic pain in various different forms including:


While every claim for chronic pain compensation is different. However, the table below gives an indication of the amount you might expect to receive for your chronic pain condition.

When valuing your claim, your solicitor will take a number of factors into consideration:

  • the degree of pain experienced
  • the overall impact of your symptoms on mobility, ability to function in daily life and your need for care/assistance
  • the effect of the condition on your ability to work
  • your need to take medication to control symptoms of pain
  • the extent to which treatment has been undertaken and its effect
  • the presence of any separate psychiatric disorder and its impact on your perception of pain.
  • your age
  • the prognosis of your condition according to a medical professional

Please note: the figures in the table above are for your chronic pain condition only. Your solicitor will calculate compensation for other losses such as loss of earning, care costs or medical expenses separately.
