Chronic Pain After A Work Accident: Getting The Workers’ Comp Benefits You Deserve

Living with chronic pain after a work accident can be incredibly isolating and frustrating. We understand your pain is real, and getting the treatment and compensation you deserve can feel like an uphill battle.

Hilley & Frieder, P.C., has over 35 years of extensive experience representing injured workers struggling with chronic pain across Georgia. Our skilled workers’ compensation attorneys are committed to achieving desired results and securing substantial verdicts and settlements in Atlanta and beyond.

Understanding Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is defined as persistent, unrelenting pain that lasts 12 weeks or longer after an initial injury. After a work accident, it can manifest in several ways, including:

  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) syndrome
  • Chronic pain syndrome (CPS)
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)

No matter the type, this perpetual discomfort and suffering should be taken seriously.

Does Workers’ Comp Cover Chronic Pain?

In Georgia, workers’ compensation insurance is supposed to provide wage replacement, medical treatment and other benefits if you sustain an injury on the job – including chronic pain conditions. However, because the origins and symptoms of chronic pain can be ambiguous, insurance companies frequently deny or lowball these claims.

At Hilley & Frieder, we understand that chronic pain is very real and can be hard to treat. Our team will fight to get you a proper medical evaluation and diagnosis to help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

How We Can Help

If your chronic pain claim was wrongly rejected, we can appeal the decision by pushing for a second medical evaluation from a new doctor. Moreover, if your benefits are undervalued, we can pursue the full amount you need for treatment, lost wages, disability benefits and other damages you have incurred.
