Help for Sufferers of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
Top-Tier San Diego Trial Lawyers Working for You
Long after a vehicle accident or workplace injury, pain can persist and begin to grow. Certain symptoms, such as severe burning sensations, aching joints or swelling, may indicate Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) — a disease with painful and lasting consequences.
If you are diagnosed with RSD, you may need an attorney to help you get full compensation for damages and losses related to the disease if the RSD was the result of a workplace injury or was caused by another person.
At Bender & Gritz, APLC, we are experienced personal injury personal injury attorneys. We help victims of negligent accidents obtain compensation, and have a record of success in RSD cases.
It is imperative that a person suffering from RSD obtain a prompt diagnosis and treatment from a physician trained to recognize the unique aspects of this condition.
What Is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy?
RSD (also called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome or CRPS) can be caused by a physical trauma, surgery, heart attack or infection. Major symptoms of RSD include:
- Severe burning pain
- Swelling and joint tenderness
- Loss of or diminished muscular function
- Muscle spasms
- Changes in skin temperature and color
RSD is a progressive ailment, meaning it can spread and become more severe. Left untreated, it can lead to osteoporosis, muscle wasting or other serious complications, even the amputation of an affected limb.
