The term “chronic pain syndrome” is a broad phrase used to describe a complex set of conditions that sometimes occur after an injury. For those suffering from chronic pain syndrome, the consequences can be very serious; this condition may, in fact, cause life-long problems and result in serious disabilities for victims. Those who have suffered a personal injury accident and have experienced chronic pain syndrome, as a result, may be entitled to compensation from the person or business responsible for the accident. This compensation may include money to pay for a lifetime of care and treatment as well as damages for loss of ability to work and continuing pain and suffering.
