Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
Discuss Your Rights with Our Waldorf Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), is a progressive chronic disease that causes an intense burning sensation and pain in the limbs (typically either an arm or a leg). CRPS is thought to be brought on by traumatic injury and, unfortunately, it does not generally get better in time without treatment. Even with proper medical care, those who suffer from CRPS will likely face a lifetime of pain management and other challenges related to the disease.
If you were involved in an accident and believe you have or have been diagnosed with CRPS, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain, suffering, medical bills, lost income, and other damages. Reach out to the Waldorf personal injury lawyers at Farmer & Klopfer today to discuss your legal rights and options.
Symptoms of CRPS
The precise nature of CRPS is not fully understood. However, medical professionals widely believe CRPS to result from injuries caused in traumatic accidents, such as car and other motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, explosions, and fires. It is believed that nerve damage as a result of the initial injury leads to CRPS.
Common symptoms of CRPS include:
- Intense pain that does not go away
- A burning sensation and/or shooting pains radiating from the initial injury
- Discoloration of the skin
- Unusually high/fluctuating skin temperature at the site of injury
- Stiffness of the joints
- Reduced mobility
- Muscle spasms
- Excessive sweating
If you notice any of these symptoms developing after an accident that left you injured, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible to determine if you have CRPS. Notably, CRPS is typically not widespread; most people experience symptoms in a single arm or leg, not the entire body.
Helping You Overcome Challenges Associated with CRPS
Unfortunately, CRPS sufferers often experience lifelong challenges associated with the disease. Because this is a progressive chronic disease, it will not simply heal on its own; in fact, CRPS often gets worse over time. Victims may require extensive medical treatment (including prescription pain medication) to manage pain and live a relatively normal life.
