Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy or causalgia, can be a debilitating condition that can cause a person permanent disability. It is one of the most painful conditions a person can have. It usually affects an arm or leg and can spread throughout the body. Unfortunately, it is difficult to diagnose and the treatment costs are usually high.

In addition to pain, symptoms can include hair and nail growth, temperature change of the skin, extreme sensitivity, and color changes in the skin. Treatment options can include medications, injections and/or a spinal cord stimulator. Due to the difficulty in diagnosing this condition, defendants in personal injury cases or insurance companies often take the position that the injured party is “faking” their symptoms or that symptoms are being “exaggerated.” Doctors who are hired by the people defending the lawsuit or the responsible insurance company often take the position that the condition is misdiagnosed or that the injury is something less severe that could easily be cured if the treating doctor was giving the correct medical treatment.

It is very important that the lawyer representing a complex regional pain/RSD victim is intimately familiar with the symptoms associated with this horrible condition. An attorney well versed in the medicine involving complex regional pain syndrome/RSD can mean the difference between success and failure in a personal injury case.
