A growing number of workers are experiencing a condition called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), also sometimes referred to as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). This relatively unknown syndrome occurs when an injury to the nerves or soft tissue is left untreated and then causes chronic pain in one or more of the extremities. Over time, RSD can produce multiple points of pain, which radiates through the body, making it difficult or impossible to hold down meaningful employment. Cases of RSD are on the rise as employees are forced to multi-task and put in longer hours at work.
If you have been diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or if you think your chronic pain may be as a result of RSD, it’s time to consult with an attorney experienced in workers’ compensation claims.

We also help you go through the process of filing for workers’ compensation step-by-step so that you can prove that RSD is a result of your workplace and the work you do. Then you can get back to feeling better and getting the right treatment for this challenging disorder.
