Chronic Pain Cases
Due to its very nature, chronic pain cannot be detected by traditional measures, including x-rays, CT scans or MRIs. However, this does not mean that chronic pain does not exist. It simply means that such cases are harder to litigate. A person who comes to suffer from chronic pain comes to face a future that is forever changed. At Boland Howe, we understand how devastating chronic pain can be, not only to the person suffering but also to their family. We know that pain can become debilitating, relationships are changed, it can prevent a person from working and can result in a need for help around the home and even with personal care.

TRIAL: In an 11 day trial Tim Boland fought in 2002, Gorman v. Falardeau, we obtained what was then the highest assessment for chronic pain ever awarded by a judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The Honourable Mr. Justice Bolan awarded $120,000. We were also successful on appeal. http://canlii.ca/t/1kwvg. By inflation adjusted comparison, this decision remains the highest recognition of the debilitating effect of chronic pain yet decided in Ontario.
Russell Howe, has also written a book, in conjunction with chronic pain experts, called Hope and Help for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.
