Complex Regional Pain Syndrome due to an Accident

Complex regional pain syndrome, or CRPS, is classified as a chronic pain disorder characterized by symptoms of swelling, severe pain and changes in the skin. Treatment for CRPS is usually almost completely unresponsive, but early intervention and extensive therapy at the time can make room for drastic improvements or remission for some patients with this syndrome. While some documented causes or factors contributing to the disorder include injury and surgery, others have noted that there is no injury to the original site.

At McGee, Lerer and Associates, we have represented many injury victims who developed CRPS after being injured in an accident. Some of our clients suffered hand injuries in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident and were later diagnosed with CRPS.

If you have been seriously injured and have been diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome as a result, immediately speak to a Long Beach personal injury lawyer to discuss your rights and options. Formerly referred to as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, or RSD, Sudeck's atrophy, reflex neurovascular dystrophy or causalgia, this syndrome can cause serious harm to an individual's arms or legs.

Marked by extreme pain and severe disfigurement of extremities, CRPS usually manifests near the original site of an injury. The injury, despite how minor or severe, will then begin showing additional symptoms of burning and shooting pain, muscle spasms, swelling, changes in skin temperature, color change, thinning of bones, joint tenderness, and restricted or painful movement.
