Neuropathic Pain Solicitors
We are leading solicitors for compensation claims involving chronic pain. We have a proven track record of securing for our clients the very best treatment and the maximum compensation they need and deserve to protect them and their families for the future.
If you need a specialist chronic pain lawyer to represent you, please call us today on 01225 462871 to see how we can help.
- The call will be free.
- You will speak direct to one of our highly specialist solicitors.
- You will not be hurried – we want to fully understand your claim.
- You will not be put under any pressure to instruct us. We want you to be entirely happy and comfortable with us before you decide to instruct us.
- Should you decide to instruct us, to ensure continuity, you will be represented by the solicitor you have already spoken to.
We understand the fundamental importance of seeking early specialist treatment and are regularly able to arrange funding for the complete range of treatment options including residential pain management/rehabilitation. Indeed, where recommended and where their condition has become entrenched, we have also successfully arranged funding for many of our clients to undergo spinal cord stimulation (SCS) or dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRG).
In summary, what you can expect when you instruct us is:
- access to the leading experts in the field to get you the specialist medical help you so desperately need;
- regular requests for early interim payments to fund the cost of recommended treatment and rehabilitation (for example, inpatient rehabilitation, hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, psychological therapy and spinal cord stimulation/dorsal root ganglion stimulation);
- consideration as to whether you would benefit from the appointment of a medically qualified case manager to co-ordinate your treatment, rehabilitation, purchase of specialist equipment and adaptations to your home.
While it may seem unusual these days, we are solicitors who do like to meet our clients! If travelling to see us is difficult, wherever you live, we may be able to see you at home or at another location more convenient for you.

What is Neuropathic Pain?
Neuropathic pain, which is sometimes referred to as Neuralgia, is caused by damage or disease to the ‘somatosensory nervous system’ (SNS). The SNS is the network of nerves that transmit information between the brain and spinal cord from the muscles, skin and other parts of the body.
The pain experienced is usually described as a burning sensation and affected areas are often hypersensitive to touch. Sufferers also often report ‘pins and needles’ and electric shock sensations.
“Richard’s understanding, professionalism and sheer tenacity was inspirational and his hard work turned the case around resulting in my receiving a settlement which included funds that allow me to receive treatment that help make my condition more bearable. My husband and I are extremely grateful to Richard, his secretary Amanda and BLB for all they have done for me.” PS (£410,000 compensation recovered), September 2017
What causes Neuropathic Pain?
This does not have a straightforward answer.
Neuropathic pain symptoms are often experienced by sufferers of conditions as diverse as multiple sclerosis, diabetes or shingles. Other conditions associated with Neuropathic Pain include, accident trauma, cancer, alcoholism, HIV infection, thyroid problems and phantom limb pain following amputation.
Sometimes, however, there is no obvious related condition and the symptoms of neuropathic pain appear in isolation.
