Can a work injury cause RSD?
RSD or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, which often goes by the name shoulder-hand syndrome, or, as of late, the Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), is a chronic condition. A workplace injury or accident could cause the condition. Other culprits include heart attack, stroke and undergoing surgery. For this reason, it is important to be aware of the telltale signs and symptoms.
If you have experienced an injury at work in the past and now recognize the symptoms, such as severe pain and discomfort in the extremities, you may be dealing with RSD. Bear in mind that it may take weeks, months or even years after the injury for the symptoms to fully develop.
Time is of the essence. If you suspect RSD, you need to undergo a medical evaluation and hire a legal professional. You should bear in mind that proving that you have RSD is difficult, as is proving that your RSD was caused by a workplace injury or accident. Remember that your employer and their insurance company might attempt to delay your case. Your case is likely to be denied if you do not have an aggressive work comp professional by your side.
