  Chronic Pain & RSD Claims
   

After being involved in a workplace accident that results in an injury, you may suffer from chronic pain and conditions that are known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), fibromyalgia or complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Complaints of chronic pain can often be difficult to diagnose and prove, since outward symptoms can be hard to detect. This can make the process of getting benefits for chronic pain complicated, and an experienced lawyer should always be consulted in these cases. We understand how chronic pain can make it impossible to perform everyday work tasks and how other injuries suffered on the job can be aggravated by pain. Our firm will help you find medical professionals who understand your condition and can help present a diagnosis of the condition in your workers’ compensation claim that will make it easier to get the benefits that you deserve.

When your employer or workers’ compensation insurance company denies your coverage or resists payment for chronic pain injuries or RSD claims, you need an attorney who is willing to fight for you and your rights.

Understanding Chronic Pain

Understanding chronic pain and the way that it differs from normal pain sensations is important for receiving proper treatment and benefits that will help pay for the recovery process.

After a broken elbow, for example, pain will accompany the injury and will subside as medical treatment is provided. Chronic pain, however, will persist after the actual injury has been treated and may last for weeks, months or even years depending on the situation. Chronic common pain symptoms include:

  • Headaches

  • Lower back pain

  • Arthritis pain

  • Neurogenic pain

Conditions such as RSD and CRPS involve continuous bouts of substantial pain, which may also be accompanied by swelling and discoloration, as well as changes to the body temperature. Work accidents can cause these chronic pain conditions. No matter how the pain originated, it is important to get the treatment that you need to ensure that the pain stops and that no long-term damage occurs as a result.
