Disclaimer

Compensation is awarded based on the symptoms of your injury, and not the type of injury suffered. This means the values given are only estimates and should not be used as a reference for how much compensation you should expect to receive for your case.

Whilst we do make an effort to keep the information on this website as accurate and up-to-date as possible, you should only treat this information as a guideline. We do not accept liability for any inaccurate or out-of-date information contained on this website at any given time.

A list of the most common chronic pain injuries and their claim worth can be found below.

Conversion disorder (£16,000 ~ £47,800)

You could be awarded between £16,000 and £47,800 as compensation for suffering from conversion disorder caused by an injury.

Conversion disorder (CD) is a brain condition that causes psychological stress to affect you physically. This means even if you have sustained no injury, your brain is fooled into believing you did suffer one. Therefore you can suffer from paralysis, tremor, blindness, hearing loss, loss of sensation and more, even when you have not suffered the corresponding injury.

Fibromyalgia (£16,000 ~ £47,800)

You could be awarded between £16,000 and £47,800 as compensation for suffering from fibromyalgia caused by an injury.

Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes widespread pain across the body. Sufferers of fibromyalgia describe this disease as pain that can shift around the body. Fibromyalgia can be caused by stress and trauma from an injury accident or medical negligence. Serious cases of fibromyalgia can cause the development of psychological disorders and have an adverse impact on your working career.

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (£16,000 ~ £47,800)

You could be awarded between £16,000 and £47,800 as compensation for suffering from M.E. caused by an injury.

Myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.) can also be known as chronic fatigue syndrome. M.E. is a long-term brain condition that causes the sufferer to feel tired, have disturbed sleeping patterns, reduced mobility and experience difficulty in concentrating. Suffering from M.E. can seriously affect your quality of life, your working career and force you to require domestic care assistance.

Somatic symptom disorder (£16,000 ~ £47,800)

You could be awarded between £16,000 and £47,800 as compensation for suffering from somatic symptom disorder caused by an injury.

Somatic symptom disorder (SSD) is brain condition where you can suffer from pain and other problems having not suffered the corresponding injury. People with SSD are not faking their symptoms and the distress from the pain they feel is real, even when injury is not suffered. This is a long-term condition and will often cause other psychological damage, affecting the sufferer’s quality of life.

Chronic pain syndrome (£21,300 ~ £63,800)

You could be awarded between £21,300 and £63,800 as compensation for suffering from complex regional pain syndrome after experiencing trauma or injury.

Chronic pain syndrome has a lot of different names, but the correct name is complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Alternatively, it is commonly known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy. CPRS is a chronic pain condition that often affects one limb. It is caused by damage to the nervous system, usually from an injury. Moderate and severe cases of CPRS can last many years and affect your ability to work. Psychological problems can develop and domestic care assistance may be necessary depending on the severeness of the symptoms.
