Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) is a rare disorder of the sympathetic nervous system that causes severe, burning pain in the limbs. As reflex sympathetic dystrophy attorneys, we see many 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.
If you were currently diagnosed with RSD as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve compensation. Contact Goldblatt + Singer to learn what your rights are and what steps you can take next.
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 a reflex sympathetic dystrophy lawyer immediately.
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 indefinitely after your accident.
It’s our job as your RSD 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. To learn more about who could be liable, call Goldblatt + Singer.
