A Chicago Complex Regional Pain Syndrome lawyer can help you recover monetary damages
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome is a chronic pain condition. This type of pain condition is rare and can affect multiple areas of the body. CRPS typically affects a person’s legs and arms. Symptoms of this pain condition include: joint stiffness, spasms, swelling, intense and burning pain, and bone or skin alterations. Although doctors are not fully aware of the causes of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, this pain condition is believed to be a result of damage done to the nervous system. Typically, this chronic nerve disorder occurs after a person has suffered injury. Problems in bones, blood vessels, skin, and nerves usually surface in persons diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. This chronic pain condition is often seen in victims of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, construction accidents, DUI accidents, and pedestrian accidents. Because many other symptoms often mimic those of CRPS, cases of this chronic pain condition are difficult to diagnose. If you believe you have developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome as a result of a motor vehicle accident or any other type of accident, we can help.
