If You Have RSD as the Result of an Accident in the Fort Lauderdale or Fort Myers Area,
A Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Attorney Can Help the Insurance Company Understand Your Needs
When a serious accident in the Fort Lauderdale or Fort Myers area means that you are now struggling with the chronic and excruciating pain of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), you may feel as though you have nowhere to turn. RSD is now also called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). The autonomic nervous system, sometimes referred to as the fight or flight reflex, is thought to be involved in this most serious of neurologic conditions. Certain obvious changes in skin temperature, blood circulation, nail color, hair loss, skin tone, or appearance may be present, but not all cases of accident-related RSD will present a textbook perfect constellation of symptoms.
Doctors and insurance companies are often unfamiliar with all of the symptoms of RSD, its debilitating effects, or the ways in which appropriate medical care can help to minimize the severity of the condition. All the while, you continue to suffer. Help is available for those who are suffering from RSD, however, from Fort Lauderdale accident attorney Mark J. Leeds. Mark has represented RSD or CRPS injury victims who have extreme sensitivity to the slightest touch of the affected body part and who cannot accept the weight or texture of clothing or the heat of sunshine upon the injured area. Mark understands the many issues and complexities surrounding RSD and has extensive experience with and knowledge of Florida personal injury law in order to maximize the chances of securing fair compensation.
Why the Insurance Company Questions Your RSD Claim
The pain associated with RSD can be excruciating and relentless, resulting from the misfiring of certain nerves within the nervous system. Some RSD victims experience a progression of symptoms, and others do not. RSD is most often seen in patients who have suffered a severe trauma like a car accident, but sometimes, even a less serious injury can cause RSD with one of the main indicators being that the degree of pain that the patient is experiencing is not commensurate with what one would expect from the injury. An important point is that sometimes the RSD or CRPS affects an area other than the area of the body which received a direct blow in the accident. Often, these murky areas are why insurance companies are so quick to undervalue an RSD injury; they do not believe that the level of care that is being requested is needed given the apparent lack of seriousness of the injuries involved.
If you are suffering from RSD or CRPS, you need the representation of a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney who has the experience to negotiate on your behalf to obtain the correct diagnosis, prompt and appropriate treatment, and your best chance of recovering to the fullest extent possible. Mark has presented the claims of many accident victims suffering with traumatically caused or accelerated RSD and has experience explaining to insurance company adjusters and juries the various RSD therapies including pain control by radio frequency ablation, cryotherapy, and other treatment modalities.
