If you experience a bad accident, pain is a natural consequence. This doesn’t make it any more pleasant to deal with. Depending on the nature and severity of the accident or injury you sustained, the pain you experience can be extreme. More than just being unpleasant, severe pain can affect your life in numerous ways. If you or someone you love was the victim of an accident caused by the negligent actions of someone else and resulted in suffering from severe pain, contact an experienced Kansas City severe pain attorney at Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet, today.
After going through a bad accident, doctors expect you to experience even severe pain. If your pain continues on for more than six months after an accident, it is defined as chronic pain and is a serious and difficult-to-treat condition. Doctors still don’t understand the causes of most chronic pain.
It’s common for your emotional wellbeing to suffer as a result of extreme physical pain. In a survey, 77% of pain sufferers reported feelings of depression. The longer your pain lasts, the more likely you are to develop a range of emotional problems. Anxiety, hopelessness, and depression are the natural result of pain. Severe pain also often disrupts sleep. A total of 86% of pain sufferers reported being unable to sleep. This can exacerbate your already stressed emotional state and make all of your symptoms worse.
Physical and Psychological Effects
Medical lack of understanding doesn’t stop your suffering. In addition to depression, 70% of chronic pain sufferers reported difficulty concentrating, and 74% said their energy level was negatively impacted.
It’s not hard to imagine the toll a pain condition can take on one’s professional life. People in pain, take more sick days than people without. With the often steep medical bills an accident brings, combined with the sometimes months off from work required directly after the accident, financial difficulties are common for severe pain sufferers.
If you experience severe pain from an accident or injury in Kansas City, MO, you deserve compensation. It may take you a long time to properly quantify the affect pain has had on your life. This doesn’t mean you can’t receive financial compensation with the right legal representation.
Many severe pain sufferers report negative effects in the following aspects of their lives:
- Ability to take care of their family
- Ability to work
- Emotional health
- Enjoyment of previous hobbies
There is no reason you should have to go through this without proper medical care and proper compensation. Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet has experience working with pain sufferers to get them the benefits they deserve to get them through this time. Often, insurance companies will cut off your coverage, claiming you’re not in pain or the accident didn’t cause your pain. This can be a particular risk if you have indeed experienced pain problems in the past. With proper legal representation, you can demonstrate the accident negatively impacted your quality of life and that you deserve compensation.
