RSD/CRPS Lawsuit Information
The value of an RSD/CRPS case depends on a number of factors, including the:
- Severity of the RSD, as medically diagnosed
- Law in the state where the injury occurred, since some states cap the amount of damages awarded
- Amount of the victim’s economic damages
- Value limits on an individual’s insurance policy
Length and Cost of an RSD Case
Each jurisdiction is different, but it is common for an RSD case to take a few years rather than a few months. Due to their complexity, RSD/CRPS injury cases are also very expensive. As a Complex Regional Pain Syndrome lawyer, we understand that most sufferers do not have the money to take legal action. This is why we generally take care of the costs. Remember, as your RSD law firm, we never get paid unless you get paid!
Symptoms of RSD
Not all patients have all the signs or symptoms of RSD. The first sign is pain that is more severe than expected after bodily trauma, such as a broken bone or motor vehicle accident injury. Patients describe:
- Burning pain and/or swelling in the affected area
- Changes in skin’s temperature, sensitivity, color and characteristics
- Susceptibility to trauma in other parts of the body
- Symptoms that progressively worsen
It is very important that RSD victims be diagnosed promptly by a physician, since early treatment can lead to better results. If you’ve been diagnosed with this condition as the result of an injury or medical negligence, we invite you to contact our RSD/CRPS lawyers now.
*RSD resulting from surgery is a recognized complication of a surgical procedure. We do not review cases where an allegation of malpractice is based solely on RSD occurring after surgery.
