Chronic pain compensation claims
We have developed a reputation in chronic pain claims and can help you to gain access to early and specialist treatment and support.
Chronic pain compensation claims
Chronic pain is defined as a pain lasting longer than three months. Sometimes, chronic pain can occur with no stimulus but usually a traumatic even or accident is the common cause.
The pain can be mild or much more severe and in some instances, can be constant. Experiencing pain like this for prolonged periods of time can have a huge impact on your day to day life; ranging from a mild inconvenience to a complete loss of independence.
Chronic pain claims are particularly complex and specialist. We would always advise you speak to a solicitor who can demonstrate real experience helping clients with chronic pain compensation claims.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome compensation claims
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a long-lasting, severe pain that is usually triggered by an injury and persists for a long period of time.
Unfortunately, many cases of CRPS go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed so it is difficult to say how common this illness is. At CFG Law, we have seen first-hand the huge impact that CRPS can have on a person’s life after an accident and as such, we will help you access specialist experts to help diagnose your illness and implement a bespoke treatment and support programme to help you to get your life back on track.
Fibromyalgia compensation claims
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that results in widespread pain all over the body. There are many symptoms of fibromyalgia including:
- Being more sensitive to pain and pressure
- A feeling of stiffness in the muscles
- Trouble sleeping
- Problems with memory and concentration
- Ongoing headaches
Although there is no definitive answer as to what causes fibromyalgia, it can often be brought on after someone has sustained an injury. Diagnosing the condition can be problematic, so it is not known how many people are suffering from fibromyalgia.
Can you claim compensation for chronic pain?
If the chronic pain is a direct result of an injury that was not your fault, or even if you are partially to blame, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Why make a compensation claim for chronic pain?
Although commonly considered to be the end results of a claim, compensation can go a long way towards helping to rebuild peoples’ lives.
At CFG Law, we use the compensation claims process to secure you access to early funding, which we put towards support and rehabilitation; helping you towards a speedy and full recovery.
How to claim compensation for chronic pain
Claiming compensation for chronic pain can go a long way in aiding the recovery process. Compensation can help fund the costs and expenses incurred as a result of your accident.

Chronic pain compensation case study
Mrs C tripped on a raised flagstone as she was walking along a pavement. She fell forward onto the pavement with her hands outstretched.
She sustained injury to her right shoulder, left arm and lower back. She developed ongoing problems following her accident, including feelings of dizziness and nausea, as well as ongoing pain and discomfort.
Along with the feelings of nausea and dizziness, she also experienced tinnitus which medical professionals could not diagnose and find cause for. Her neck and shoulder continued to be painful and she experienced nausea on a daily basis.
We got a referral for Mrs C to see a pain specialist to help with her symptoms and the management of these and helped her to claim £20,000 in chronic pain compensation.
