Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
RSD Sufferers May Be Entitled To Compensation
Reflex Sympathetic Disorder, or RSD for short, is a serious condition that can result following accidents where there are injuries sustained. Another, term used by health care providers for this condition is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or CRPS. This unusual medical condition occurs when the site of an injury, even a minor one, becomes inflamed, burns, swells and ultimately interferes with everyday life. When RSD/CRPS is the result of an accident-related injury, victims may be entitled to compensation under the law.
RSD/CRPS cases are unique in that the condition occurs only in rare situations following trauma. RSD/CRPS can follow serious injuries, such as gunshot wounds and broken bones, but it may also appear after seemingly minor injuries. When the original injury is caused by the carelessness or negligence of others, victims may be eligible to obtain compensation related to:
- Medical and hospital-related expenses.
- Loss of income.
- Pain and suffering.
- Impairment and Disfigurement.
- Mental Anguish
- Loss of employment or life.
A skilled lawyer can help victims explore their options, prove negligence and trace the path from original injury to the development of RSD/CRPS.
