Injury Attorney Describes How Accidents Can Cause Permanent Pain

Video Transcript:

Leslie Rhode:

What is complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and how can that be the result of an accident? We ask Miami attorney Jack Hickey in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

Jack Hickey:

We see CRPS all the time after car crashes, after slip-and-falls, after all kinds of injuries. It starts out as an injury to an arm or a leg and turns into a permanent pain situation, where one part of the brain is miscommunicating with another part and basically just tells your body that you're going to feel pain for the rest of your life even where you take some serious medication like gabapentin or something like that. Once it sets in it can be permanent. After, let's say six months or so of having it, it's permanent and you're going to be feeling pain, intense pain, and usually constant pain for the rest of your life. It’s a very serious situation. We see it all the time.
