When a construction accident in Philadelphia or New Jersey causes you to suffer injuries, you may be able to file a claim. You may be entitled to compensation for both bodily and psychological injuries sustained, which is why you should speak immediately with a Philadelphia personal injury attorney.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) is one type of injury that can result from a construction accident in Philadelphia or New Jersey.
It can be debilitating and even lead to permanent disability, which is why proper treatment early on is important.

Some of the types of treatment available for CRPS include:

 

  • pain relievers (over-the-counter or opioid medications);
  • antidepressants/anticonvulsants;
  • corticosteroids;
  • bone loss medication;
  • sympathetic nerve-blocking medication;
  • heat/cold therapy;
  • topical analgesics;
  • physical therapy;
  • biofeedback;
  • transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS); and
  • spinal cord stimulation.

 

While treatment can be very expensive, these expenses may be recovered through a claim if the construction accident was the result of someone else's negligence.

You should immediately consult with a Philadelphia personal injury attorney if you have suffered CRPS as a result of a construction accident in Philadelphia or New Jersey. An attorney will work with you to collect the evidence necessary to build a substantial claim.
