If you have been injured in a construction accident in Philadelphia or New Jersey, you may be wondering how you can protect your legal rights. Injuries suffered in this type of accident may be compensated through a personal injury claim. A Philadelphia personal injury attorney can help.

One type of injury that can occur as a result of a construction accident in Philadelphia is CRPS, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome.
This is a condition where a number of symptoms can be experienced, including pain.

A failure to properly diagnose or treat CRPS could result in serious complications. These complications can even become disabling.

One type of complication from CRPS is atrophy, or a loss of muscle tissue.
This can happen when there is limited or no movement in a limb. Because of the pain, stiffness or other problems with CRPS, you may find movement difficult, which can result in the muscles deteriorating.

Another complication of CRPS is contracture, where the muscles tighten and could remain in a fixed position.
This can affect your fingers, hands, toes or feet.

When a construction accident in Philadelphia or New Jersey leads to CRPS, you should consult with a Philadelphia personal injury attorney. An attorney will take the time to sit down with you and discuss what legal options may be available.
