Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)

Colorado Personal Injury Attorney

One of the most confusing and frustrating injuries someone can face–is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. This myriad of painful symptoms often leaves the victim with lifelong pain and suffering. Unfortunately, many insurance companies are unaware of the complexities surrounding Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy and may unreasonably deny your claims or fail to offer you a fair settlement. When this happens, it is important to contact an experienced and compassionate Colorado Personal Injury attorney who understands your suffering. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is also known as Complex Regional Syndrome and the symptoms vary from person to person. Because of this, it can be extremely difficult to diagnose properly and victims may spend years undergoing medical testing, surgeries, and rehabilitation before finally being diagnosed with RSD. During this time, victims often find themselves unable to work or perform their daily activities without extreme pain.

Symptoms of RSD:

  • severe burning pain
  • changes in skin
  • changes in bone density
  • excessive sweating
  • swelling of the limbs and extremities
  • extreme sensitivity to touch
While any traumatic event can trigger this painful syndrome, many of them are caused by automobile and motorcycle accidents. After an injury such as a cut or laceration, the sympathetic nervous system begins to function abnormally. If RSD is diagnosed quickly, the victim may fully recover, but if left untreated or undiagnosed, RSD can cause permanent disabilities, deformities and even death. Unfortunately, due to its mysterious nature, victims of RSD are often denied medical benefits, workman’s compensation and disabilities benefits. A qualified personal injury attorney who specializes in RSD cases it absolutely critical in obtaining the financial compensation you are entitled to. Your attorney will need to work closely with physicians and insurance companies to ensure that all of your medical needs are met, so you can continue the battle against RSD.
