How our complex regional pain syndrome specialists can help

complex regional pain syndrome frequently asked questions

The pain associated with complex regional pain syndrome can be triggered by a trauma. It can be a car accident or a very minor trauma such as a slip or fall where you do not break a bone. However, you do not recover as you expect to and your symptoms become debilitating. Generally, the symptoms will be limited to 1 limb however in some cases they can spread to other parts of the body. 
There are 2 types of CRPS. Type 1, previously referred to as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, is where there is no direct nerve damage and accounts for around 90% of cases. Type 2 CRPS is where nerve damage has occurred, this is sometimes called causalgia. 
This is a common question and unfortunately we cannot give an exact amount. Each and every complex regional pain syndrome compensation claim is different, given the varying factors we need to take into account. 
We look at numerous factors when assessing the impact of complex regional pain syndrome, including the degree of pain you’re experiencing, the impact on our mobility and ability to work, whether you have any medication requirements as a result, your age, and the medical experts’ prognosis, among others. 
Sometimes you may feel like your solicitor does not understand you and is not listening to how affected you are as a result of the accident. This may be because they do not have the specialist knowledge to deal with your claim. Chronic pain cases require a specialist solicitor to act on your behalf.  You have the freedom to choose who handles your claim. You can change solicitors at any time during your personal injury claim. You do not need to give your solicitor a reason for wanting to change. If you wish to change solicitor, we would recommend you do so quickly. We will write to your solicitors and request your file, confirming that we will preserve their entitlement to legal costs so there is no charge to you.
