Helping You Recover Damages For CRPS Or RSD

At The Law Offices of Mitchell Clair, we work with clients whose negligence claims include injuries related to complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD). When someone with RSD or CRPS suffers a traumatic incident like a car crash or a fall, their symptoms will oftentimes significantly worsen.

Because these disorders tend to involve high levels of pain beyond what you'd expect from a given apparent injury, CRPS and RSD claims are hard to prove. It is also difficult to distinguish between the injuries directly resulting from an accident and the additional injuries that later appear as complications or degenerative conditions. Defendants and their insurers are also reluctant to pay them.

In these situations, you need a lawyer with the detailed experience gained from handling these claims in the past. Mitchell Clair has that experience. He understands what you are going through, and how to prove it. We help clients in Blue Bell, Lafayette Hill and throughout Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding areas.

Skilled Representation For Complex Injuries

CRPS and RSD are not imaginary disorders, although they can be hard to explain from the bare facts of an accident. These conditions can be identified and treated against strict diagnostic criteria. Nevertheless, they're not likely to be identified in emergency treatment or through standard diagnoses. Doctors do not generally consider the possibility of CRPS or RSD until weeks or months of therapy for orthopedic or soft tissue injuries fail to relieve the patient's pain.

At The Law Offices of Mitchell Clair, we help patients get the diagnosis and treatment they need when conventional approaches fail to relieve a patient's chronic severe pain. We understand that CRPS and RSD are neurological disorders that usually reflect nerve lesions secondary to the blunt force blows characteristic of motor vehicle accidents, trip-and-fall injuries and accidents at work. Because the resulting pain is so intense and long-lasting compared to what you'd expect from the accident, claims for CRPS or RSD damages are typically met with skepticism by insurance companies.

Experienced In Proving Chronic Pain

Attorney Mitchell Clair's experience with the proof of difficult and complex injury claims can make a significant difference to the outcome of your case. He knows how to document and present claims for complex regional pain syndrome. His trial experience can help you convince a jury of your pain even when the defendant's liability insurer resists payment.

If your condition matches the established diagnostic criteria for CRPS or RSD, there's no reason why you should walk away from what might be the most significant element of your overall damages claim.
