Chronic Pain after Personal Injury
Posted on April 5, 2021 at 1:32 PM by The Biker Lawyers
What do you know about chronic pain?
There are few things as damning and difficult to explain as chronic pain. It may not cripple you, but it probably sucks the joy out of your day on a regular basis.
Going to your kids’ events turns from an evening of enjoyment, to one of managing agony while trying to hide it from your loved ones. Simple tasks like mowing the lawn suddenly become things you dread as you make your way through the week.
The hardest part, unlike a broken bone, this pain is impossible to explain. How does one tell their boss that what began as a dull ache an hour ago is now a throbbing pulse that you cannot ignore, yet tomorrow you may be pain-free?
That a migraine has suddenly, and utterly incapacitated you, no matter how many meds you take, but it might go away in the blink of an eye if you’re lucky. You usually aren’t lucky, but you hope and pray you are this time.
You spend the rest of your life learning to cope, to manage not only your pain but the expectations of others around you.
You watch sports not just to root for your team, but to escape for a brief time and live vicariously for a moment. To remember what it felt like to be whole and feel unstoppable.
I can’t promise you the pain ends. I can promise you that our law firm understands it though, at a deep and fundamental level.
I can tell you that each of us has had a long-lasting injury at some point in our life, and we’ve learned to re-arrange and manage our worlds because of it.
I can also promise you this. If the pain you suffer is because of someone else’s actions, such as a car crash, a motorcycle collision, or any other injury caused by someone else, we’re here to help.
Why should I sue?
There are a lot of reasons to go after the money you deserve, but we understand that no amount of money will end the chronic pain. Still, you’ll need it.
You’ll need it to adjust to a life that’s been altered unjustly, to take care of the medications, the treatments, the search for a life that gives you happiness once again.
We have watched time and time again as people walked, wheeled, or limped through our doors, searching for someone to trust. Hoping to find a lawyer who doesn’t see them as dollar signs. Praying they can find someone who will give them the best possible shot at their new life.
Many times, these people will never return to their old lives. They won’t be able to work the same jobs, do the same activities, or if they do, it’ll be years down the road, filled with uncertainty.
Oftentimes these are hardworking individuals who took great pride in their life before the crash. They didn’t take handouts, they helped others, and refused to be a burden to their loved ones. For some, this is the first time in their adult lives they’ve had to ask others for help. That act, in and of itself, is difficult.
Facing hard truths about their health while medical bills pile up is perhaps the most debilitating moment the chronic pain sufferer will ever encounter. I can tell you, it was for me.
So call us if this happens to you or a loved one. Call us to come fight for you. To come help you get the money you need to put your life back together. We exist as a law firm for this exact reason.
People in the community face curveballs, such as horrible crashes, and they deserve to have someone who cares about helping them put their life back together. We do.
