Chronic Pain From a Car Accident
Practically any type of injury caused by an auto accident can result in chronic pain, which is a permanent or long-term persistent injury. Injuries that result in chronic pain can be seriously life-altering, and those who suffer from chronic pain may face daily struggles well after completing initial treatments or procedures to treat the original injuries.
The implications of chronic pain go well beyond the physical aspects, as well. Some research suggests that long-term chronic pain can actually cause chemical changes in the brain that can leave lasting cognitive and psychological damage. For example, an auto accident victim who suffers from chronic pain may also have to deal with depression caused by the persistent pain. A once-healthy person who now has to deal with the daily struggle of chronic pain may undergo severe changes in self-image and self-esteem. Work and other daily activities may become stressful or cumbersome. If chronic pain is causing insomnia, it can drastically alter the victim’s work and family life.
