It’s not uncommon for car accident injury victims to experience intense and enduring chronic pain. Chronic Pain as a result of a car accident is likely to be associated with “soft tissue” pain; making it challenging to diagnose and difficult to treat.
In many chronic pain cases, the victim’s pain initially appears from the accident related injury – then continues far beyond the period in which the injury is medically expected to heal. Whiplash and lower back pain are often categorized amongst chronic pain cases. Studies have shown that in 85% of lower back pain cases, there is no anatomic or physiological explanation. Insurance companies may begin to question the legitimacy of the claim.
- Is the pain real, or is the claimant exaggerating?
- How disabling is the pain really?
- Is the claimant truly unable to work?
This line of questioning often leaves victims feeling anxious, depressed and alone.
Medical conditions like chronic pain syndrome are anything but imaginary or psychosomatic. The pain that claimants are feeling is real and affects their lives in many ways.
