Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), formerly known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), is a type of chronic pain that can develop after someone gets injured, undergoes surgery, experiences a heart attack, or a stroke. This type of pain is relatively uncommon and still not well-understood by physicians. Usually, it is diagnosed simply by ruling out other types of chronic pain. CRPS/RSD occurs in an arm or leg and is proportionally much more painful than the severity of the original injury.
The symptoms of this condition might not manifest until months after the initial injury and can change over time. People who suffer from this chronic pain report feeling:
If you have been diagnosed with this chronic pain condition and believe that it originated from an injury you sustained because of someone else’s ignorance, you might have a case. Contacting a personal injury attorney as soon as possible will increase your chance of winning compensation. Personal injury cases have a statute of limitations of two years, so you must file your claim within two years of getting diagnosed with this condition.
If you have developed CRPS/RSD as a result of an injury you sustained, you might be entitled to compensation for the harm you’ve suffered and enduring pain you’ve been forced to endure.
