Chronic Pain After a Car Accident
Although car accidents can happen in an instant, the injuries they cause can leave you in pain for the rest of your life. Chronic pain lasts indefinitely and does not improve on its own. Chronic pain can affect all areas of your life including your work, relationships, hobbies, and overall happiness and lifestyle. It may require ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, and pain management so you can continue to live your life, which can be expensive.

The attorneys at The Benton Law Firm understand that chronic pain can take a toll on your life and add unwanted stress. We are here to provide support and representation so that you may be compensated for the lasting pain and suffering you will continue to endure after your accident.

Why You Need An Attorney
The effects of chronic pain go far beyond the physical discomfort you feel. Often, you may see multiple doctors in order to find the source of, and a treatment for, your pain. This can result in medical bills accumulating to the point that you are unable to pay for further treatment for such pain. Chronic pain can also lead to you missing work, resulting in a loss of wages or income. It can affect your personal life in that you can no longer enjoy the things you once did or spend time with family doing activities you all enjoy.
Because chronic pain results in financial stresses and the inability of you to enjoy your life as you once did, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. An experienced personal injury attorney can take over your legal claim while you focus on your recovery and your family. They can investigate your accident, identify the liable parties, calculate the full amount of damages you are entitle to, including future damages, and negotiate with insurance and attorneys until you get the money you need. With a lawyer’s help, you are far more likely to get the full amount of compensation you deserve.

Common Car Accident Injuries That Result In Chronic Pain
Car accidents can cause sudden movements of the body that impair connective tissues or muscles, especially in the head, neck, or back, that can result in pain and suffering long after the accident has occurred. Common injuries that result in chronic pain after a car accident include:
- Trauma to the spinal cord
- Other spinal or back injuries such as herniated or dislocated discs
- Other trauma to the head or brain
- Sprains and dislocations
- Broken bones and fractures
- Injuries to the shoulder, typically from the seatbelt
When you’ve suffered from an injury in a car accident, it is important to seek medical treatment right away. A doctor will be able to provide documentation that your injury is likely to result in chronic pain long after your accident has occurred. This documentation will likely be necessary to prove you suffer from chronic pain and are entitled to compensation for it.
How To Deal With Chronic Pain
When you’ve been injured in a car accident, there are certain things you should do in order to manage the resulting chronic pain.
You should seek medical treatment and follow all the advice of the doctor. A doctor will help to determine if physical therapy might help you to cope with chronic pain or if something more serious, like surgery, needs to be done. Additionally, a doctor can prescribe medications that ease the pain from which you are suffering. You will be provided with methods and techniques to cope with the chronic pain so that you can get your life back to as normal as possible.
It is important to also speak with your doctor about possible alternative treatments for pain. Sometimes pain can result from a psychological issue that requires therapy. Other times, victims of car accidents find relief from chronic pain through certain exercises, meditation and relaxation, or other forms of alternative medicine such as acupuncture. It would benefit you to explore all of your options in coping with long-lasting pain.
