What is CRPS?
Also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is caused by an injury to the sympathetic nerves, resulting in severe pain. The condition can be catastrophic, permanent and disabling. There is no known cure, although it is said that about 50% of patients can get better spontaneously. As leading CRPS lawyers, we specialise in many CRPS cases, working on behalf of our clients to get back the money they’re owed.
What are the symptoms?
Sufferers will generally experience extreme pain. Many describe a severe burning pain, even though the part of the body that has been injured feels cold. There may be change in the temperature of the hand or foot and sensitivity even to light touch. Frequently, there will be swelling and a change in skin colour in the affected area.
