Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Los Angeles Attorney

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), according to the McGill Pain Index, is one of the greatest chronic pains a person can experience. CRPS is an uncommon source of chronic pain that generally affects the limbs. Beyond the pain of living with CRPS is the fear and frustration of dealing with a disabling and poorly understood condition. This medical condition interferes with your ability to live life on your terms.

If you or a loved one suffers from complex regional pain syndrome as a result of an injury caused by the negligence or recklessness of another party, you may be entitled to compensation. At the Law Offices of Samer Habbas, we understand the emotional, physical and financial ramifications of this syndrome on those who fall victim to it. We are ready to help you get the justice that you deserve.

What Is Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke describes CRPS as a chronic condition characterized by excessive or prolonged pain, changes in skin coloration or temperature, and swelling the in body part that is affected. Although CRPS is most common in the arms, hands, legs or foot, this nerve disorder can affect any part of the body. Approximately 70 percent of victims experience pain that spreads to other regions of the body.

CRPS is also referred to as causalgia and reflex sympathetic dystrophy (or RSD). This condition is thought to be a result of nervous system dysnfunction and can appear after some sort of trauma or injury.

Symptoms of CRPS

The amount and duration of pain associated with complex regional pain syndrome far exceed what would commonly be expected from a nerve injury. Common symptoms include:

• Burning pain and extreme sensitivity to touch
• Stiffness and swelling
• Deterioration in motor abilities
• Changes in skin color or texture
• Changes in skin temperature and sweatiness
• Changes in nail and hair growth

There is no cure for CRPS. This condition doesn’t even have a clear diagnostic test. Instead, if you display symptoms, your doctor will take a full medical history and perform tests to eliminate other conditions. Lack of a test makes diagnosing CRPS difficult and arranging for adequate treatment challenging.

Unfortunately, obtaining the necessary care and treatment for complex regional pain syndrome can be both challenging and expensive. If you are diagnosed with CRPS, it is common to find yourself battling depression, anxiety and mood disorders as well, which can easily add to your existing challenges. This is exactly why you need to hire a Los Angeles injury attorney who specifically has experience with CRPS. The legal team at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas has the knowledge and perseverance in fighting for our clients who are suffering from CRPS.

Therapies and Treatments for CRPS

While there is no definitive cure for complex regional pain syndrome, there are several treatments and therapies that can help keep the pain and progression of the syndrome under control. Common therapies and treatments include:

• CRPS Ketamine Infusion Therapy
• CRPS Physical Therapy
• CRPS Cognitive Therapy
• CRPS Drug Therapy

Another treatment for CRPS involves an implant of a motor cortex electrical stimulator near the base of the spinal cord or the injured limb. The stimulator sends low-level electrical signals to specific nerves and blocks pain signals from reaching the brain. This is a painful and expensive treatment that is reserved for sufferers with severe or fairly advanced CRPS.

If you don’t treat CRPS by pain management therapy, you can suffer even more debilitating conditions, such as:

• Chronic nerve pain
• Loss of dexterity
• Muscle atrophy
• Permanent disability

Common Causes of CRPS

The cause of CRPS is not known. Some experts point to the inflammatory response associated with the condition and suggest that this indicates that it is a disruption in the healing process. However, one thing is clear – certain injuries generally trigger complex regional pain syndrome. It can be the result of injuries suffered in various accidents, including:

• Motor vehicle accidents
• Slip and falls
• Workplace accidents
• Surgery or incidents of medical malpractice

CRPS can appear either immediately following an injury or symptoms may take several years to surface. Regardless of how long it takes for you to be diagnosed with CRPS, you may be entitled to compensation if you developed this painful medical condition as a result of another party’s negligence. Our legal team can help you get the full compensation that you deserve.

I was involved in a major car accident in 2015 and was referred to this law firm by an acquaintance. Samer and his team handled my case for over 3 years. During this time, I felt at ease knowing that I was in good hands. I was able to move on with my life and let my attorney’s office handle the rest. Samer and his team educated me on what to expect in the process and guided me through every step of the way until the settlement. They were always professional and quick to respond to my requests and worked tirelessly to get the compensation I deserved.I highly recommend this law firm to anyone seeking legal counsel on auto accidents. A huge thank you to Samer, Corbin, Mike and the rest of the team!read more

From the start of my untimely and horrific fall at the most unsafe flight of stairs. Which was in a privately owned complex, where by the way, the owners truly believed they were, as they say, “above the the law”. The MOST WISE DECISION I MADE WAS TO CONTACT THE HABBAS LAW FIRM! This firm from the initial meeting (they came to me!!) Photos were taken of all aspects of this poorly kept complex and a promise I shall never forget! They promised to take great care of me with medical professionals, fully inform me of all the correspondence with the opposing party/insurance company. Most of all have me compensated for the pain and misery the on site owners daughter put me and my daughter through! True to their word, SAM HABBAS AND ASSOCIATES LAW FIRM DID JUST THAT! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIRM TO ANY AND ALL PERSONS WHO NEED A TRUSTWORTHY PROFESSIONAL LEGAL TEAM!!! From the initial meet and consultation, the scheduling of medical appointments, the medical professionals, the wonderful receptionists at HABBAS LAW FIRM, my paralegal SUMMER, and of course my team of THE BEST OF THE BEST LAWYERS! 5💫 rating! By the way, settlement negotiations came and in a matter of minutes HABBAS LAW FIRM upped and secured a handsome settlement. Thank you 🙏 to all the most amazing team whom I shall always recommend, and appreciate! P.s This poorly managed complex was forced to make all repairs and changes to meet safety code!👍🏼Amanda Inland Empireread more

I had such a great experience with Samer Habbas & Associates from the very beginning of working with them. The process was so easy from the start. They came to me to get the details of the accident, they asked me for a few additional documents which I scanned in, and then they took it over completely. In a time of need, they were amazing with taking all the burden off of me and eventually getting me a great result as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone.read more
