As a Fort Worth personal injury lawyer, I know that all kinds of accidents can result in severe injuries which can seriously impact the victim’s life in a number of ways – by preventing them from participating in sports and hobbies, by leaving them permanently disabled, and by causing them long-term, chronic and ongoing pain.
If you have suffered injury and chronic pain as a result of a Fort Worth car crash, motorcycle wreck, truck accident, dog bite, railroad accident – or indeed any kind of accident which was caused by another person’s negligence, then it is important that you consult with a board certified personal injury lawyer who can help you recover the full and fair compensation you deserve – not just for your medical expenses and lost income – but for the very real pain and suffering that you have endured.

Medical Treatment for Accident Victims Suffering Extreme Pain
Chronic pain resulting after an accident that wasn’t your fault should be recognized as a serious problem and you should be fairly compensated for it by the at-fault party’s insurance company. Severe pain can often be debilitating and also cause depression, anxiety, emotional trauma, and many other emotional and psychological issues. Advances in brain imaging technology have established that severe pain can alter your brain and can adversely affect your emotional well-being.
There are a number of medical treatments commonly available to Fort Worth accident victims which seek to both treat the chronic pain as well as the underlying causes. Treating both the cause and the symptom is important as chronic pain can linger long after the initial injury itself has healed. Commonly prescribed drugs include opioids, steroids, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and Ultram ER. Other methods frequently used to address pain suffered by car wreck victims include physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, electrical stimulation, radiofrequency ablation, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), pain pumps, pain pacemakers, psychotherapy, psychological counseling, relaxation therapy, and spinal drug pumps.
