Understanding Chronic Pain and Chronic Illnesses
Most injuries and illnesses get better. However, with chronic issues, that is not always the case. The individual could be left dealing with a long-term, even permanent impairment. Here is a basic overview of the key things that you need to know about chronic pain and chronic illnesses:
- Chronic Pain: Chronic pain is defined as persistent or recurrent pain that lasts for more than three months, even after the initial injury or underlying cause has been treated. It can have a significant adverse impact on a person’s physical, emotional, and social well-being. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 20 percent of American adults deal with some form of chronic pain.
- Chronic Illness: A chronic illness is a long-term medical condition that lasts for at least three months or more and requires ongoing medical management and treatment. Chronic illnesses can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetic predisposition, environmental factors, and lifestyle. A study published by the National Library of Medicine, nearly half of American adults have at least one chronic disease. These illnesses vary widely in the level of impact that they have on the person suffering from them.
Proving Liability for Chronic Pain or a Chronic Illness in Alabama
Proving liability for chronic pain or a chronic illness in Alabama is complex. To successfully establish liability, the claimant must demonstrate that the defendant’s negligence, intentional actions, or failure to act directly led to their chronic pain or illness. Most often, this involves providing evidence of the relationship between the defendant’s actions and the claimant’s condition. A comprehensive investigation of the incident that led to the chronic pain/illness is a must. In order to build a strong case, you need to gather extensive documentation— including things like medical records, expert testimonies, and witness accounts.
Injured Victims Deserve the Maximum Compensation
Is another party legally liable for your chronic pain or chronic illness?
