Most work injuries heal over time with treatment and rest, enabling people to return to their previous jobs or re-enter the workforce in a different role. In other cases, injured workers develop disabling nerve conditions that are challenging to diagnose and have no known cure — such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), also sometimes called complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or causalgia.
If you have been diagnosed with RSD or CRPS, we know that your symptoms may include chronic burning pain, swelling and skin reaction in the area of a previous injury. If your nerve condition has advanced into later stages, you may also be coping with stiffness, weakness, tremors and overall fatigue that can be incapacitating.
Work may be entirely out of the question for you, and yet RSD/CRPS sufferers seeking workers’ compensation benefits often have a tough task ahead in getting a claim approval, payment of medical expenses and timely benefit checks.
At The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., we are familiar with the medical research into nerve disorders and how to position and substantiate your work comp claim. We handle North Carolina Industrial Commission hearings to resolve disputes and know how to navigate the court system effectively if an appeal is necessary.
