Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) can develop after you suffer an injury in an accident. Common triggers can include:
- A musculo-skeletal injury such as a crush injury or injury to the nerve
- Surgery, often procedures to repair fractures or damaged nerves after injuries to hands
- Being immobilised in a cast or splint
- Minor injuries such as a cut to the finger
CRPS can occur in any body part and sadly it can spread. Over the years we have dealt with a number of claims where CRPS has been diagnosed, often in the hands, feet and knees.
It’s an extremely painful condition that leads to persistent, severe and often debilitating pain, and something that’s often misunderstood and misdiagnosed.
But as this month is CRPS Awareness Month, we want to help raise awareness of CRPS and remind people that it can be caused by even minor injuries.
We’re keen to help raise awareness of the condition to help people get an earlier diagnosis so they can get the help they need.
Our Personal Injury Solicitors have helped many people who have developed CRPS after sustaining seemingly small injuries, so they can get the care, support and rehabilitation they need to live with their condition.
We offer a free claims assessment, so get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to discuss your situation with you and how we can help you. Ask us if we can help you on a No Win, No Fee basis.
