Those who suffer from chronic pain often have difficulty obtaining compensation for their ongoing medical needs because unlike other injuries, chronic pain is often a symptom, not a cause. Individuals may look fine and healthy on the outside, but may be suffering in silence as they try to go about their daily lives.
At Stevenson Whelton MacDonald & Swan LLP we believe our clients should not live with continuous pain. We are dedicated to representing those who suffer from chronic pain, fibromyalgia and other serious injuries. We seek to help our clients obtain much-needed compensation to cover medical expenses and other economic losses caused by their injury.
"A note of thanks for all your work and patience with my file over the past four-plus years. I really do appreciate your support and advice in all aspects of this case. It made a real difference in my ability to cope with the various challenges life, post-accident, has presented. " — A.C., Ellesmere Port, Cheshire
Coping With Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is often the result of a previous injury that failed to heal correctly. It may also develop months or even years after the initial injury, especially if you happen to injure your body again in the same place.
The tests needed to assess chronic pain and ongoing treatment to manage it can quickly become expensive, and may not be covered by OHIP. Some may have difficulty in making a claim to their insurance company for financial assistance. Insurance companies may determine that the policy does not cover chronic pain, or that the policyholder has not provided enough information verifying that the pain exists, for example.
If your insurance claim was denied or you are overwhelmed by the complexities of making a claim for chronic pain, our personal injury lawyers can help. We will take time to examine your case and translate your insurance policy into plain English so you understand what options are available. We will then work with your doctor and any medical specialists who may be necessary.
Finally, we will assertively negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. In many cases we have been able to obtain results without going to court, though this may not be true in every case. As experienced trial lawyers, we will defend your rights in court if necessary.
