Indianapolis Chronic Pain Disability Benefits Attorney

No one deserves to live with chronic pain. As its sufferers well know, it is much more than persistent discomfort. It can interfere with a person’s sleep, career, personal relationships, overall health, and quality of life. Disruptions in so many areas can also lead to psychological difficulties, including depression or an adjustment disorder.

Causes of Chronic Pain

There are many different injuries and conditions that may inflict a person with constant or recurring pain. Just a few examples are:

  • A lasting injury, particularly to bones or muscle
  • Nerve damage or irritation
  • Ailments such as arthritis or fibromyalgia

It is hard to believe, but sometimes doctors simply cannot find an explanation for a patient’s suffering. In these cases the pain may be caused a chemical imbalance, a psychological problem, or by nerve or tissue damage that does not appear on tests.

Social Security Benefits for Chronic Pain

It is not hard to understand why a person living with chronic pain may have difficulty working long enough hours to support himself or herself. Unfortunately, there are often many obstacles for people seeking the benefits they deserve, especially when their pain has no easily identifiable cause. Just some of the challenges people seeking benefits may face are:

  • Judges who are skeptical of problems with no clear cause
  • Doctors who do not adequately document or demonstrate medical issues
  • A backlogged and inefficient system
