In recent years, the body of medical knowledge concerning the mechanisms that cause some people to experience widespread chronic pain following trauma has grown exponentially. It is now understood that some people are susceptible to developing a sensitization of their nervous system following a traumatic injury. As a result of this sensitization, people who suffer from chronic pain experience unrelenting and debilitating pain that is far more significant than would be expected in a person with similar injuries who does not suffer from chronic pain. In the past, because people with chronic pain reported pain beyond the levels of pain that would be considered normal in a person without chronic pain, their reports of pain were sometimes doubted or disbelieved.
Chronic pain cases are always defended vigorously by insurance companies precisely because the chronic pain sufferer reports pain that is beyond the level that would commonly be expected. It is common in chronic pain cases for defendants to suggest to judges or juries that the chronic pain sufferer is exaggerating or even lying about the pain being experienced and its effects on his or her life. For the chronic pain sufferer, this sort of approach is demoralizing.
