Chronic Pain - Disability Claim

The greatest difficulty with legal cases involving this illness is establishing your credibility with insurers and their lawyers who firstly do not accept this diagnosis, and secondly, do not believe that such an condition is real. In addition, in the context of disability claims, there is the difficulty of convincing the insurer that the condition is disabling.

Facts & Figures - Chronic Pain

Chronic pain refers to pain that endures for longer than one to two weeks and does not improve over time. In some patients, the pain may occur on a daily basis or have periods of respite after which the pain returns. The pain may be found in specific, recurring regions of the body, especially the back and head, or may occur in multiple areas at once, as is true with conditions like fibromyalgia.

This recurring pain hinders the patient's abilities to perform minor daily tasks and enjoy life to its fullest. Psychological side effects include depression, anxiety, and insomnia, as well as others. The condition can also lead to abuse of narcotic painkillers, especially since most chronic pain is not eliminated by traditional medication.

Fact: An estimated 6 million Canadian’s suffer some form of chronic pain.

Fact: 63 percent of the younger Canadian sufferers said heir chronic pain meant they could not perform their everyday tasks at home, school and work.
