Complex Regional Pain

Complex regional pain syndrome, or reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, is a rare, chronic condition, usually occurring in the arms or legs, characterized by intense pain or aching, swelling, skin discoloration, accelerated temperature, abnormal sweating, and hypersensitivity.

This illness can start with a fracture or a trauma and then before you know it, it’s like “nerves are on fire….” Nothing helps, nothing can make it go away. Because complex regional pain syndrome is largely misunderstood, both in the legal and medical communities, it is essential that victims retain an experienced attorney – one with the specialized knowledge these complex claims require, and with access to the top doctors who can correctly diagnose, manage, and eventually in the courtroom prove this chronic and life-changing condition exists.

Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome cannot be objectively diagnosed. Successful representation requires the assistance of skilled trial lawyers with experience proving this case. At The Cochran Firm, we know how to do that. We understand how to establish the link between an accident and complex regional pain syndrome. We can help you obtain just compensation.
