Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), can affect any part of the body, but is most often characterized by severe, unrelenting pain to a person’s feet, hands, shoulders and knees, and other extremities.
RSD / CRPS is a progressive and chronic disease that afflicts thousands of people in the U.S. While RSD / CRPS is most common among women, it does not discriminate on the basis of age, race or gender. It can happen to anyone at anytime. Though it was discovered in the 1800s, its consequences remain a mystery to medical professionals. If you have been involved in an accident and your injuries have resulted in an RSD / CRPS diagnosis, you will need the representation and guidance of a qualified and informed RSD / CRPS attorney.
There currently is no cure for RSD / CRPS. The disorder may persist for a prolonged period of time, possibly for the rest of the patient’s life. Understandably, the prospect of never being cured places a serious psychological burden on the patient. This fact, combined with the chronic, severe nature of the pain experienced, often makes RSD / CRPS patients susceptible to depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, and a sense of hopelessness and helplessness.
RSD / CRPS is often misdiagnosed as a psychiatric or mental disorder. Therefore, in prosecuting a case involving a client with RSD / CRPS, it is critical that the victim be properly evaluated and diagnosed by RSD / CRPS specialists and experts. Proper evaluation requires a meticulous review of medical records and consultation with qualified specialists. The pain does not go away if left untreated.
The lawyer handling your case must understand the origin and progression of the disease. Because the disease is often permanent, the resulting care and treatment is expensive, and lifetime medical bills alone can be staggering. It is therefore critical that the lawyer fully understand the disease so that the client’s financial recovery can be maximized.
The attorneys of Belt & Bruner have experience in counseling clients who are going through the stress and strain of battling RSD / CRPS. When our law firm gets involved, we try to help the RSD / CRPS afflicted client in every way possible. We often aid clients in their dealings with their own insurance companies and medical providers. We also try to make certain that the client is evaluated by qualified medical specialists, and personally stay abreast of the patient’s changing physical condition.
By pursuing a lawsuit on your behalf, we will seek to recover monetary damages to compensate you for all of your financial and emotional losses. This compensation includes past and future lost wages, past and future medical bills, life care planning expense, damages for emotional and psychological harm as well as pain and suffering. We always strive to maximize the client’s financial recovery. A reasonable financial recovery can help ease the client’s emotional and psychological problems. Recently, we settled an RSD / CRPS case for a client who broke her arm for $2,500,000.00.
