St. Louis RSD Attorneys

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a complex and chronic neurological syndrome caused by an injury to soft tissue or nerves in the body. RSD, also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, can be extremely difficult to diagnose due to its various symptoms and mysterious nature. Unfortunately, failure to diagnose RSD can lead to a lifetime of chronic pain and disabilities.

For unknown reasons, the sympathetic nervous system can begin to function abnormally after an injury. This malfunction sends victims into doctors offices and emergency rooms with a myriad of mysterious neurological symptoms known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.

Symptoms of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

  • Severe burning like pain in extremities or in body
  • Excessive sweating
  • Swelling of the limbs or extremities
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Changes in skin
  • Changes in bone density

Unfortunately, since the symptoms of RSD vary from person to person, RSD can be extremely difficult to diagnose and even more difficult to prove to insurance companies. Patients are often required to undergo multiple tests and assessments in order to accurately diagnose RSD and this process can be extremely overwhelming and frustrating for accident victims looking for answers.

If you or someone you love was injured in an accident and has experienced symptoms of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, it is important to contact an experienced attorney immediately. Your attorney will need to work closely with medical experts and insurance companies to obtain the appropriate amount of compensation needed for medical expenses both now and in the future.

Your attorney will also need to accurately prove that these debilitating symptoms are directly related to the injury you sustained. Unfortunately, this can be extremely difficult. Due to the nature of the illness, the jury or judge often sees a plaintiff that appears to be healthy. Since there are no broken bones or distinct blood tests to prove the existence of RSD, your Missouri personal injury attorney may need to produce medical experts and physicians as well as witnesses who can lend real life testimony to the suffering RSD has produced.
