Seminar Title: Understanding Chronic Pain -Dealing With Sceptics

In my experience dealing with Chronic Pain litigation, I frequently hear from Chronic Pain sufferers, with no visible disability, that they are dismissed by many in their lives. Hurtful comments are made such as ‘it is all your head’. In litigation people are accused of dishonesty by cynical insurance companies. I would like to talk about this unfair scepticism and how it impacts litigation in greater detail.
