RSD / CRPS is generally misunderstood in the medical community and is even more misunderstood in the legal arena.
The potential problems start early in the case when the client is being treated medically. Because RSD is often misunderstood, it is often misdiagnosed as a psychiatric or mental disorder. Therefore, in prosecuting a case involving a client with RSD / CRPS, it is critical that the victim be properly evaluated and diagnosed by RSD / CRPS specialists and experts.
Few lawyers have handled RSD cases and had experience in dealing with the medical issues involved. The evaluation of such a case involves a meticulous review of medical records and consultation with qualified specialists. The lawyer handling your case must understand the origin and progression of the disease.
Too often, lawyers undervalue RSD cases because they do not fully understand the extent and permanency of the disorder. The majority of RSD / CRPS afflicted persons end up on total disability and suffer enormous losses in their financial and personal lives. Because the disease is often permanent, the resulting care and treatment is expensive and lifetime medical bills alone can be staggering. It is critical that the lawyer fully understand the disease so that the client’s financial recovery can be maximized.
