Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
A Severe Condition That Work Injury Lawyers in New York Understand
Sometimes the most devastating job-related health problems are not visible to others. Unlike obvious burns, lacerations, or injuries requiring post-surgery bandages or casts, external evidence of many occupational diseases and on-the-job injuries is often absent. For example, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is a lesser-known yet severe condition. Sometimes referred to as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). CRPS can be caused by traumas such as work-related car accidents, slip and fall accidents on the job, ongoing repetitive stress injuries and construction site accidents.
