Do not discount your feelings as being “down in the dumps.” Chronic pain and depression often go hand in hand. Your life can change in an instant following an accident that results in serious injury, or over time if you develop an occupational illness. Active lifestyles become inactive. The daily work routine can become severely disrupted.
At the law firm of DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A., our Charlotte chronic pain lawyers take your condition seriously, and can help seek the compensation you need to treat this legitimate and disabling condition.
Ignoring the signs of depression will do more harm than good. Left untreated, depression can be debilitating and deadly. Contact our North Carolina workers’ compensation attorneys online or call 866-953-8974.
Following a serious injury to your back or knee, prescribed pain medication can become a part of your life. Severely injured people may require narcotics and injections just to get them through the day. In many cases, depression sets in following a life-changing accident at work, or following work-related car and truck accidents.
While physical injuries are noticeable, there are often no outward signs of depression, chronic pain or some other work-related illnesses. This hidden or emotional pain can do far more damage than a broken bone or a strained back.
Many clients develop depression from long-term chronic pain syndrome. The attorneys at DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A., have helped many clients get treatment for this type of depression.
