Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Claims

Seek Justice with a Philadelphia Injury Lawyer at Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C.

As defined by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a type of chronic pain condition that most often affects one limb, typically after it has been injured. It is believed to be caused by nerve damage or malfunction in the peripheral or central nervous systems.

CPRS can occur as a result of serious physical trauma sustained in an auto accident, fall, construction accident, workplace accident, or by a defective product. In these and other events caused by another’s negligence or wrongdoing, Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C. is committed to seeking justice for the injured. No one should have to live with chronic pain. Allow our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys the opportunity to help you set things right by recovering fair compensation from the party that caused you harm.

To find out more about the ways our firm can help you, call (215) 608-2183. Your consultation is free. You can also continue reading to learn more about CPRS.

Symptoms of CPRS

Some symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome may include:

  • Chronic pain (typically lasting 6 or more months)
  • Changes in skin color
  • Swelling in the affected limb
  • Temperature changes in the affected area
  • Decreased muscle control and coordination
  • Abnormal jerking, tremors, or fixed posture in the affected limb
  • Stiffness in the affected joints


There are two types of CPRS:

  • CPRS-I, previously known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, occurs in patients without a confirmed nerve injury.
  • CPRS-II, previously known as causalgia, occurs when a patient has experienced a confirmed and associated nerve injury.

If you have been diagnosed with CPRS-I or CPRS-II, it is important to consider whether your injuries were caused by another person or a company. If you were injured in a car accident, for example, and developed CPRS-II as a result, the person that caused the accident could be held responsible for your medical bills, lost earnings, and even the payment of compensation for ongoing therapy, medication, and emotional suffering. A Philadelphia injury lawyer can help you take the right steps to file a lawsuit.
