New Jersey Trauma and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Lawyer

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a chronically painful and poorly understood disorder characterized by severe fluctuations in skin temperature, extreme sensitivity, and burning sensations around the body. CRPS can make life impossibly difficult for those afflicted—pain commonly starts at the limbs, but progressively spreads to other areas of the body. Because so little is known about this condition, no current cure exists. However, doctors believe that CRPS is triggered by a previous injury or trauma to the body that didn’t properly heal and created an inflammatory response.

Unfortunately, the condition generally happens after injuries sustained in slip and falls, car accidents, workplace accidents, or instances of medical malpractice. Therefore, for many CRPS patients, the condition could have come from injuries sustained in an accident caused by a negligent party. With this in mind, contending with the painful symptoms of CRPS can be especially infuriating.

This condition is incredibly burdensome to manage. While enduring such a troubling time can feel helpless, you are not alone in coping with your symptoms. At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, our New Jersey CRPS attorneys cannot imagine the pain you’re going through, but we are fully committed to ensuring you have all of the necessary medical care and treatment you will need to live with this debilitating condition. Medical evidence suggests that being proactive about treatment early on can stop CRPS from spreading and increase the chances of remission. However, you will need access to many resources, such as physical and occupational therapy, psychological therapy, neurosurgical procedures, medications, and even a spinal cord stimulation device. There is no reason why victims of CRPS should not have every medical resource at their disposal; our legal team can fight aggressively to obtain financial compensation for your injuries so you can properly heal from this condition. This is a terrible disorder to live with, but you can manage your pain with the help of intensive treatment.

Symptoms of CRPS

Symptoms of CRPS can arise immediately or months after an injury. Much is unknown about why or how the condition is triggered, but it is believed to be the result of a nervous system dysfunction. The most common symptoms of CRPS include:

  • Burning pain
  • Extreme sensitivity when the skin is touched
  • Stiffness or swelling
  • Limited motor ability
  • Changes in skin color or texture
  • Changes in skin temperature
  • Unusual nail and hair growth

In addition to the physical symptoms of CRPS, grappling with the pain of this condition can also give rise to anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. However, therapy and proper medication can help manage the emotional toll brought on by CRPS. Along with seeking restitution for the medical treatment you will need, our skilled legal team can pursue damages for the lifelong costs of your care, your lost earning capacity, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
