Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
NJ RSD Compensation Lawyer
A serious workplace injury our Jersey workers compensation lawyers deal with is Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, commonly referred to as RSD. Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy arises most frequently as a byproduct of a traumatic workplace injury involving damage to a nerve root or as the residual of one or more surgeries to repair a fracture, burn or some other injury. RSD manifests as any number of symptoms including pain, nerve irritation, inflammation, changes in skin blood flow, sensitivity, edema, tissue discoloration, or temperature irregularities.
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy is a complex medical condition and every workers compensation lawyer at our New Jersey firm has experience representing workers who suffer from RSD. If you are in need of a compensation attorney because you have been diagnosed with RSD, please do not hesitate to contact our office. Our workers compensation attorneys will be happy to assist you. Medical treatment for RSD can be complicated depending on the nature and extent of a workers compensation injury. Our compensation lawyers find this to be a major source for conflict with employers and their workers compensation insurers in RSD cases. There are unique regiments for treating Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy including methadone, ketamine, oxygenation therapy, pain pumps, denervation devices, and pharmacology, including opiate and antidepressant medications. The problem is that employers and their workers compensation insurers often seek to restrain access to all potential treatments for RSD, and when this happens our attorneys can prove invaluable. Our experience in handling New Jersey workers compensation cases involving RSD has armed us with the knowledge necessary to succeed on behalf of our clients. We would be happy to put our expertise to use on your behalf and a lawyer is available to assist you immediately.
