Unfortunately, many of Attorney Stoehr's clients have experienced sustained pain to one degree or another as the result of an accident. According to the American Pain Foundation, September is National Pain Awareness Month. Pain is said to affect more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. With this in mind, chronic pain is still a medical problem that many overlook or underestimate when making medical diagnoses. It is extremely important to monitor your pain, especially after an accident, to see if the intensity and frequency of your pain is diminishing, or is something that needs to be seriously addressed by a professional. This is also something that a caregiver or concerned family member could check in on in regards to their injured loved one, perhaps every day or certain times during the day.
