What is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and how is it caused?
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic and debilitating neurological condition that can affect individuals from any walk of life. If you have developed RSD/CRPS, it is important that you have an attorney on your side who not only understands what you are going through, but who has experience recognizing this particular condition and tying it to a direct act of negligence, neglect or intentional wrongdoing. Hiring a Tucson personal injury attorney from our firm will significantly improve your chances of recovering damages and being able to avail yourself of treatments that can help ease your pain and improve your quality of life.
We strongly believe that personal injury accident victims should not be forced to pay for medical treatments and other costs associated with the injuries they have had to endure due at the hands of another. When a client comes to our firm, we do everything we can to help that client recover the compensation he or she lawfully deserves. Schmidt, Sethi & Akmajian has an incredible record of success with 98% of the cases we represent ending in a fair and just settlement. Over the last 40 years we have recovered more than $100 million dollars in damages for our clients.
At this time there is no known cure for RSD or CRPS. While these conditions are relatively rare, any individual who develops one of these conditions may be forced to live with severe pain for the rest of his or her life. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy tends to present symptoms soon after an individual has suffered a blunt force trauma injury from a car accident, motorcycle accident or other similar accident. There are instances when medical malpractice, emergency room errors or hospital-acquired infections have resulted in cases of RSD/CRSD as well.
How a Tucson Personal Injury Lawyer can help with your CRPS Lawsuit
Lawyers who do not possess an intimate understanding of the symptoms indicative of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome could leave their clients unnecessarily struggling with long-term physical pain and massive financial hardship. The lawyers at our firm are devoted to seeing that our clients get maximum compensation for the injuries they sustain, particularly when those injuries are caused by another person's negligence or complete disregard for the safety of others. If you are experiencing chronic pain, swelling, burning, extreme stiffness or any other symptoms that don't quite match the initial injury or trauma you sustained, you may have CRPS.
