Chronic Pain Claim Compensation

How Much You Could Claim Calculator

Chronic pain is a great challenge, but not an uncommon one. If you’re struggling with chronic pain yourself, we can help. We’ve fought for thousands of chronic pain sufferers and helped them get the compensation they deserve.

Chronic Pain Compensation

Pain ordinarily functions as a useful signal that lets you know something is wrong with your body. It’s a normal part of dealing with injuries and illnesses. Pain that works in this way, as a defence mechanism, is referred to as ‘acute.’

  • Chronic pain syndrome, or CPS, is something very different. It is pain that recurs over long periods of time, long after any causative injury or illness has been resolved.
  • Chronic pain is typified by lasting for three months or more.
  • Chronic pain is not only physically exhausting. It can also have a devastating emotional and mental impact.

If you have chronic pain stemming from an injury inflicted on you through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation in exchange for all the negative effects it has had on your life.

If you’re ready to start a claim or simply like to discuss your chronic pain experiences, we’d be happy to help. You can reach us on 0808 164 9153 for free.

Chronic Pain Defined

In diagnosing chronic pain syndrome, the duration of the pain you experience is the key factor. Pain that persists beyond the expected recovery time for an illness or injury may qualify as chronic the longer it goes on. Pain lasting for more than 12 weeks is typically considered chronic.

Chronic pain does not have to be constant; brief symptom-free periods in between bouts of recurrent pain are common to chronic pain sufferers.

Physical symptoms can vary widely, but they typically including aching sensations, shooting pain, or feelings of stiffness and tightness.

If you’re struggling with chronic pain and the cause was an accident that wasn’t your fault, we might be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. Call us free of charge on 0808 164 9153 to speak to our legally-trained advisors about your situation. We provide free, confidential advice and help you determine whether or not you’re eligible to make a claim.

Chronic Pain: Potential Causes

There are a host of different causes that may cause chronic pain, some of which are difficult or almost impossible to determine. Chronic pain without a clear cause is especially hard to treat. Many cases of chronic pain can be directly attributed to an injury.

Common causes include:

Regardless of its origin, the chronic pain you suffer is real. If that pain is the result of an accident which you did not cause yourself, we can help you seek compensation. Call us on 0808 164 9153 for a free, confidential consultation with our friendly advisors. We’ll help you find out whether or not you’re eligible for compensation.

Chronic Pain Conditions

Fibromyalgia Syndrome

Fibromyalgia Syndrome, or FMS, is a common condition characterized by pain spread all over the body. Fibromyalgia may be caused by extreme physical or emotional trauma, including serious injuries. Deeply emotional events, such as the death of a loved one or giving birth, may cause Fibromyalgia.

Other symptoms of fibromyalgia besides prolonged pain include headaches, fatigue, and cognitive impairment (difficulty concentrating and remembering).

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RDS)

RDS is a condition also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, or CRPS. RDS is particularly common after a serious injury of the arms or legs. Bone fractures, crushing injuries, and amputation are all particularly likely to cause RDS, but the syndrome may also be seen following more minor injuries like severe sprains. RDS may only begin to present symptoms months after the causative injury.

RDS symptoms include throbbing or burning pain, swelling, sensitivity, and motion impairment. Symptoms can last months or even years.

Myofascial Pain

Myofascial pain is a condition brought on injury or strain of a specific muscle, tendon, or ligament, or a group of such tissues together. Symptoms include muscle spasm, muscle pain, and tenderness

Thank you Megan for all your hard work, your very professional and patient. Very polite i don't think the outcome would have been the same without your help.

Simon Figg

Excellent in all areas and i would say that Goldman Knightley are the best solicitors!  I am so grateful.

Involved a slipping incident in a well know superstore.  Liability was disputed however we still managed to achieve to recover £10,000.00 for her injuries which involved soft tissue injuries to her back and shoulder.



Very professional and sympathetic to my case. The case manager got the ball rolling right away and made sure I was cared for in any way they could. I was impressed with the level of communication as well as their commitment to getting me healthy again and fairly compensated

The legal Personal Injury Lawyers handled my situation in a professional and timely manner. They quickly returned phone calls. They responded to texts and emails with a seeming sense of urgency. Communication right? It was peaceful to be kept informed and up to date on the status of my case. I received a fair settlement for my damages. I would recommend them to anyone!

James Stowers


I called numerous times throughout my case to get information and I always felt like I got all the information I asked for. Though these things take a long time to resolve, it felt good to not feel forgotten throughout the process. Great place and grateful for the job they did for me.


I was in a minor collision that caused major lower back injury. Goldman Knightley handled everything very well as far as setting up appointments during the 5 months of physical therapy I went through. It was a long journey, but the few times I called with updates, they were good on returning those calls. I was happy with my choice to use them.


This firm was, without question, the most helpful after having my accident. They remained in contact with me through the entire process and made sure all my questions were answered. I'm sure I was a little annoying with how often I wanted updates but they were patient with me and I would definitely go back to them.

Madeline Boyle

I am so happy I contacted Goldman Knightley, I got rear ended and didn't know what steps to take and as soon as I contacted them it was so easy. They made sure everything was taken care of and I got back everything I deserved and some. Very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of their service.
