Helping Chronic Pain Sufferers Collect Workers’ Comp Benefits
A number of workers’ compensation claims result not from single accidents, but from pain that lingers for months after an injury or from the cumulative effect of years of work-related wear-and-tear on one’s body. This persistent pain can affect daily life, interrupt sleep and make it impossible to fulfill your work responsibilities.
Chronic pain is a recognized medical condition that is often defined as pain that persists for more than three months. Many people try to “work through” this type of pain, but chronic pain can spread to other parts of the body and cause psychological problems as well. If you suffer from work-related chronic pain, it is important to seek medical attention and speak with a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney. In Bristol and surrounding areas, you can find the help you need at Cullen Legal.

Our firm has had great success helping workers in Bucks County and throughout southeast Pennsylvania who have chronic pain syndrome recover the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.
Because it does not always involve a visible injury and the level of pain is impossible to measure, it can be challenging to recover workers’ compensation benefits for chronic pain. Employers and insurance carriers frequently deny these claims. Our workers’ compensation lawyer will help you get the medical treatment you need and obtain the medical documentation necessary to support your claim.
Each case involving chronic pain is different. How yours is resolved will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of your symptoms, how long you have experienced them and the extent to which they impact your job performance. Even if you are able to work, you may qualify for temporary or permanent disability benefits and full reimbursement for medical care.
