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 in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read 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

I was in a terrible wreck back in October. I had multiple broken bones and a severe concussion. I started searching for lawyers immediately and after interviewing 5 different lawyers. I felt Samer was going to do the best to represent me and he did. Samer, Mike, and Jazmine went above and beyond to make sure everything was in order from dealing with insurance companies to getting the medical treatment I needed. They answer their phones and if they do miss your call they actually call you back in a timely manner. They made sure I was taken care of, the service they provide to their clients is unrivaled. I hope nothing like this ever happens to me again but if it does Samer and Mike have earned my business for life. They are hands down the best personal injury attorneys ever. I highly encourage anyone who has been in accident to go with Samer and Mike if your hurt or injured there is no firm better than this one. Thanks again Samer I appreciate all the work and help you and your team have done so i can get through this! :)read more
