Commonly asked questions about chronic pain compensation claims:

If your chronic pain is a direct result of an accident or injury in which you were not at fault, and you are suffering from ongoing negative repercussions on your life and/or work, then you may have a case.

Chronic pain can be caused by a range of different incidents and accidents, including:

You can find more information about chronic pain on the  NSW Government Health website.

The money you receive from your chronic pain compensation claim can be used to compensate you for:

  • Loss of quality of life
  • Childcare or care assistance for your children
  • Ongoing medical and rehabilitation costs
  • Loss of income due to an inability to work
  • Costs of medication and alternative therapies

The amount you can claim will depend on a number of different factors. Your lawyer at Stacks will discuss with you the monetary amount of any potential compensation payouts, and will always strive to ensure you receive the maximum compensation possible for your particular case.

For all serious injury compensation claims (under which chronic pain claims fall), claims must be made within three years of the original injury occurring.
