CRPS-Devastating, Chronic Job Injury Pain That Needs a Relentless Workers' Compensation Attorney
Many on-the-job injuries can be clearly linked to a workplace accident. But there are other work-related injuries that aren't so clear-cut. The workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl have decades of experience helping injured workers. We know how to build cases that get results.
Unlike obvious workplace accident injuries, such as broken bones, burns, lacerations or scrapes, many occupational diseases and on-the-job injuries are difficult to prove. The agonizing condition known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)- also referred to as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)-is this type of job-related injury. CRPS is an incurable neurological disorder causing chronic pain through nerve impulses going to specific areas of the body. A worker who has suffered a trauma or injury, such as broken bones, burns or heavy lifting injuries, can eventually develop work-related Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
The workers' compensation system is supposed to help. But because CRPS can be difficult to link to the workplace, getting benefits can be difficult. Employers and insurance companies often challenge claims and benefits can be denied. They have lawyers on their side. You need an experienced workers' compensation attorney who will fight for you.
Let Us Go After the Workers Compensation Settlement You Deserve For Your On-the-Job CRPS
CRPS symptoms include constant aching and/or acute pain, affecting the skin, bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons. CRPS can be caused by any number of common workplace injuries, including work-related car accidents, chronic repetitive stress injuries, slip and falls at work and construction site accidents. With 35 years of Workers' Compensation law experience, we've seen many CRPS cases and know how common it is for CRPS afflicted workers to have their Work Comp application denied. We care about CRPS victims and work hard to help them recover restitution, and we will help resolve your job injury claim too!
CRPS is painful and debilitating, and it can make it very difficult for workers to perform the duties of their job. Injured workers may seek treatment, but medical expenses can add up quickly. They may be unable to work, resulting in a loss of income.
Our legal team knows how to build a strong case that your CRPS is job-related and that you deserve workers' compensation benefits. You can expect compassion and understanding about what you're going through. You can also expect aggressive representation as we fight to get the benefits you deserve.
If you have job-related CRPS, you may be unable to return to work because of it and might need long-term disability assistance such as ongoing physical therapy. Your quality of life has been impacted, as well as your ability to support dependents if you are the breadwinner in the family. Don't suffer alone.
