Goldblatt Singer Knows Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Cases
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is a rare disorder of the sympathetic nervous system that causes severe, burning pain in the limbs.
As personal injury lawyers, we see RSD cases, the majority of which are directly linked to an injury or trauma. This rare condition, also known as complex regional pain syndrome, can have a lasting impact on the victim’s life and is still not fully understood by the medical community.
What Symptoms Does RSD Cause?
Symptoms often linked to RSD include burning, swelling, hot and cold flashes, flushing, discoloration and shiny skin around the affected extremity. RSD is often misdiagnosed, so if you are experiencing symptoms after an accident, talk to your doctor and call us immediately.
What Are The Effects of RSD?
RSD pain and longevity is often not proportional to the severity of the original injury, which could be as seemingly minor as a broken bone or twisted ankle. These symptoms could last for weeks, years, or even indefinitely after your accident.
It’s our job as your attorneys to make sure you are compensated for these lasting injuries. If the accident occurred on the job, we can help you file for workers’ compensation. In other accidents, another person may be liable for your injuries.
