Understanding Pain

The International Association for the Study of Pain defines pain as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience.

Commonly, individuals experience head, neck, shoulder, back and leg pain following a car accident, slip and fall, trip and fall, truck accident or construction accident. This pain can be temporary or permanent.

If you are in pain because of someone’s negligence, it is important that you seek medical treatment.
