Chronic Pain Care and Workers’ Compensation

What Is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is the name for when the body’s nerve system sends constant, persistent pain signals to the brain, lasting months or years. This can be the result of a traumatic injury, repetitive stress injury, or cumulative stress. Many job duties can cause chronic pain including repetitive jobs such as clerical or assembly line work, or heavy and repeated lifting or carrying objects.

As an employee, you may be seeking pain management and care options from your employer and workers’ compensation insurance, with no relief and little help. Our team of Greenville workers’ compensation lawyers at Christina & Davis, LLC can help you pursue compensation for your injury and chronic pain, so that you don’t have to worry about the legal aspect of your situation. Let our team handle your case, so you can focus on finding healing, pain management, and your options for recovery.

What Is the Responsibility of Workers’ Comp in Chronic Pain Cases?

Despite many employer’s denial of symptoms, or dismissal of your pain, workers’ compensation insurance does have a place in long term, chronic pain care. When you are injured at work, or have a repetitive stress injury, you need to seek medical care, and begin compiling documented accounts of your pain. If your appointed workers’ compensation physician downplays your pain, you have a right to seek a second opinion. Our team can help you secure the medical documentation needed to get the workers’ compensation benefits that you deserve. We know that despite strict timeline deadlines, and the tendency for insurance companies to want to close out cases quickly, there are exceptions to the rules of healing and work-related injuries. Chronic pain is a real concern, one that plagues workers in a variety of occupations. Don’t let your employer make you seek care on your own when they have a responsibility for coverage.
