Proven Results For CRPS VictimsHelp requires Understanding and Acceptance that CRPS is real.
In one Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) case, lawyer George Patterson obtained a resolution of the case in the Federal Court located in Greenbelt, Maryland for $587,500. George Patterson’s client with RSD had incurred less than $20,000 in medical bills but was left with constant pain. The complex regional pain syndrome occurred after the Shady Side resident injured his hand in a truck accident that occurred in Prince George’s County. The defense questioned the seriousness and existence of the disorder but was persuaded by an internationally renowned expert on RSD and CRPS hired by personal injury lawyer George Patterson.
Complex regional pain syndrome is very difficult to treat and resolve. Such conditions are frustrating to patients and their doctors. Conventional treatments for the underlying injuries that lead to the condition are ineffective and painful for the patient to endure. Some of the associated symptoms such as hair loss, a limb occasional developing a blue tint, changes in the growth of finger nails, differing temperature in one limb, and spreading of the condition to other limbs may not initially be recognized by doctors as indications of CRPS. Notations of such objective findings are often given little weight by insurance adjusters. Insurance companies will demand increasing levels of objective evidence of an injury the longer it takes a car accident victim to recover. Complex regional pain syndrome victims often deal with complaints of intense pain that persist for years. CRPS is an unusual injury because it generates debilitating pain with minimal objective signs of injury. It is difficult for lawyers to prove that a person who looks fine is seriously injured.
