Finding Solutions to RSD & CRPS Injuries
Many car accident victims suffer from intense pain accompanied with a burning sensation in their arms, legs, or feet after an accident. Although these symptoms could signify a minor injury, it is also possible that these are early signs of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). These conditions are comprised of a group of symptoms that may give rise to serious health complications in the future.
Recovering from RSD, CRPS, and other traumatic injuries after an accident is not only a matter of seeking proper medical treatment. Who will pay for all of the treatment, and your other losses and expenses? A personal injury claim offers solutions for accident victims in their financial recovery.

RSD & CRPS Occurs after Serious Accidents
Any situation where serious physical trauma is involved may carry a risk of including RSD or CRPS. Some injuries seem minor at first, but if left unchecked, these can develop into serious debilitating conditions.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy can occur in all kinds of situations, such as:
- Auto collisions and traffic accidents
- Slip and fall accidents and other premises liability
- Accidents in the workplace and work-related situations
Many serious injuries do not show symptoms for years after the initial incident. After so long, many individuals lose out on their legal ability to file a claim for financial compensation.
Symptoms of RSD and CRPS may include the following:
- Severe burning pain
- Swelling around the injury site
- Skin discoloration
- Sensitivity to even light touch
- Excessive sweating or dryness of the skin
- Joint tenderness or stiffness
- Painful movement
Every injury case is unique. The signs and symptoms of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy may vary from one person to the next. If you have been in an accident, it is essential for you to seek a full medical assessment of your injuries and obtain the treatment you need to make a full recovery of health. This information can allow you to file an injury claim for the full amount of compensation you need.
If you've been injured in an accident through another's wrongful actions, you are entitled to compensation. Don't wait any longer; contact our firm immediately to see how we can help you.
Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.) It allows you to focus on your own recovery, rather than the complicated details of your case. 2.) By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?
This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.
What is the average settlement amount for a personal injury claim?
The average compensation amount for a personal injury case is anywhere from $3,000 to $75,000, depending on what type of damages you are pursuing.
Does California put damage caps on claims for personal injury cases?
Yes. California Civil Code section 3333.2 sets a cap on the amount of non-economic damages (pain and suffering) that can be recovered in a medical malpractice case. The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000.
