Experienced New York Personal Injury Lawyers
Pain is difficult thing to quantify. An injury that seems excruciating to one person can seem mild to another, and vice versa. For the person suffering this pain is very real. Chronic pain is defined by medical professionals as pain that persists longer than the healing process for an injury or disease. Diagnosing chronic pain can be difficult but those who experience it after an accident or other injury still require treatment.
At the law firm of Friedman, Hirschen & Miller, LLP, located in Albany, New York, our experienced attorneys understand chronic pain and how it can prevent people from working and living normally. Sufferers of chronic pain often require compensation to pay for their medical bills and lost wages but may face difficult opposition from insurance companies who either do not understand their pain, or do not believe the claim is legitimate. We will investigate your injuries and chronic pain and will present them to the insurance companies on behalf of our clients.
If you are suffering from chronic pain and need an experienced advocate on your side, contact us at Friedman, Hirschen and Miller and get the representation that you deserve.
Types and Causes of Chronic Pain
Chronic pain can result from an accident that causes injury to the neck, back, spine or other joints in the body, such as the knee, ankle and shoulder. A broad range of conditions can cause this pain, including:
- Migraine headaches
- Back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee and hip pain
- Disc tears and other disc injuries
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Phantom pains after an amputation
- Post traumatic stress disorder
- Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
Many of these conditions require long term medical care and pain treatment as well as psychological treatment. Chronic pain can often result in depression and other mental disorders, in addition to physical pain. Our attorneys will address all aspects of your pain and will help you get the compensation you need for every part of your medical treatment.
