Share Article

AutoAccident.com (The Law Offices of Edward Smith) announces the launch of an information exchange at RSDAttorney.com for those suffering from RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) and CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) due to trauma.

What differentiates reflex sympathetic dystrophy from a normal injury is that the pain gets worse over time rather than better, and there are skin changes associated with the disease.

'It is critical that an attorney handling these cases has a familiarity with... the evidence of injury and long-term economic impact.'

Autoaccident.com (The Law Offices of Edward A. Smith) is pleased to announce a new website, RSDAttorney.com. This site is dedicated to helping and providing useful information to individuals who suffer from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) due to trauma.

These painful and debilitating conditions of the autonomic nervous system can be caused by even very minor trauma, but resulting levels of pain and disability are far in excess of what would be expected from their precipitating injuries. The condition is extremely painful, sometimes requiring insertion of a morphine pump and is typically disabling. RSD and CRPS often go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because many medical professionals do not encounter these conditions often enough to be familiar with the frequently confusing pattern of symptoms. They are likewise injuries with which many personal injury law firms are not well acquainted.

“It is critical that an attorney handling these cases has a familiarity with medical experts including neurologists, pain management doctors, physical rehabilitation specialists, life care planners and economists at his disposal so that the evidence of injury and long-term economic impact can be quickly and effectively established,“ said Mr. Smith, who has been a trial attorney since 1982, has a coveted Avvo.com rating of 10.0, has successfully handled many RSD and CRPS cases, and provides free case evaluations for those who have suffered these types of injuries. Information and resources available to consumers are published at RSDAttorney.com.

The Law Offices of Edward A. Smith are also seeking stories from individuals who have dealt with this difficult condition so that their accounts can be recorded on the site and inspire others with this condition. Individuals willing to be interviewed are invited to contact ed(at)RSDAttorney(dot)com.
