New Jersey Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Lawyer

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a chronically painful neurological condition that develops after the body experiences trauma or injury. The major symptom of this progressive nerve disorder is severe, disabling pain, which worsens over time if left untreated. Frighteningly, RSD develops from injuries sustained in everyday accidents, such as slip and falls and car accidents. The exact cause of RSD is unknown, but the disorder can result from sprains, fractures, lacerations, or nerve injuries. The effects of this debilitating and potentially permanent condition are far-reaching—aside from the pain of increasingly sensitive nerve endings, RSD can cause high rates of anger, depression, and anxiety among those afflicted.

RSD is severely painful and often requires ongoing treatment and care over an extended period, if not forever. For RSD patients who developed the disorder because of a preventable accident caused by a negligent party, the resulting internal and external turmoil is especially traumatic.

At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, our Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy lawyers regret that you must live with this painful condition. Early diagnosis and comprehensive treatment are crucial in managing the long-term symptoms and minimizing the extent of the condition before it becomes permanent. While these are troubling circumstances, we believe you deserve to have every medical resource at your disposal to treat your injuries properly and extensively. If this is a condition you have suffered because of someone else’s negligence, our legal team can pursue every avenue of restitution possible for your present and future medical care. Addressing the party responsible for your RSD diagnosis can be overwhelming, but you are not alone in this process.

Symptoms of RSD

The symptoms of RSD generally begin at the point of injury, but often spread to limbs and other areas of the body as time progresses. While they vary by patient, common symptoms of RSD include:

  • Chronic pain disproportionate to the injury sustained
  • Overly sensitive nerve endings
  • Increased sensitivity to stimuli
  • Temperature and color changes in skin
  • Swelling
  • Unusual hair growth in the affected area
  • Unusual nail growth
  • Progressive deterioration and dysfunction in the affected limb

As previously stated, RSD is usually an ongoing condition that requires lifelong care. Our legal team can work diligently to investigate the lifelong costs of your future medical care, as well as the costs of your current treatments, necessary surgeries, medications, and physical therapy. Furthermore, we can aggressively pursue damages for your pain and suffering, lost income, and more.
