Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Withy King are committed to raising awareness of CRPS and can give specialist legal advice on CRPS cases as we understand the condition.

Over the years Withy King have helped many accident victims nationally who have suffered from CRPS. We have specialist solicitors who act on behalf of CRPS sufferers across England and Wales where CRPS has been caused due to an injury sustained in an accident which was not their fault.

We understand that CRPS sufferers tend to experience pain of a more serious nature than what would be expected from the type of injury suffered.

In every case, our specialist team applies their expert knowledge and understanding and have helped people suffering with CRPS turn their life around.

We understand that early treatment of CRPS can actually increase the chances of making a recovery, but for many, CRPS can be very disabling and difficult to treat.

Our specialist team has excellent relations with experts who have proven medical experience in the diagnosis and treatment of CRPS. Following diagnosis and upon recommendation by medical experts, we frequently obtain early interim payments to fund the cost of additional rehabilitation including physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, inpatient stays, sympathetic nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulation.

Withy King work closely with the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases which is a national treatment centre dedicated to the treatment of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

CRPS clients who have instructed Withy King have described their experience as:

“Five star level of service….My solicitor Louise Hart and her support team at Withy King were extremely efficient, conscientious and meticulous throughout my litigation process. Communication and attention to detail was outstanding”. “I had developed a condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome following an accident at work when I fractured my knee. Louise fully understood the condition and this was clear after my first consultation. Louise made the effort to visit me at home as mobility was a problem. I have no hesitation in recommending people to Withy King”.

Withy King offer to deal with personal injury claims on a No Win No Fee basis and are happy to offer initial advice at no cost to the CRPS sufferer. In the first instance, we will establish the facts of your case:

• How did the accident happen?

• Was the accident a result of breach of duty or negligence?
• Details of your injury and the effect it has had on your life.
• Details of your financial losses.
• You will need to keep a record of your symptoms and expenses and losses as
they arise and ensure to retain documentary evidence (receipts/invoices etc.).

Over the years we have helped many accident victims who have suffered from CRPS.

In every case, our specialist team applies their expert knowledge and understanding and have helped people suffering with CRPS turn their life around. Due to the imprecise nature of this illness, this area of personal injury litigation is extremely complex and requires expert understanding and analysis of the medical evidence. Insurance companies are often suspicious about cases where a medical expert cannot fully explain why a patient is suffering from the symptoms or conclusively attribute them to the accident. In the absence of a perceived “orthodox” explanation, insurers may refuse to accept that symptoms have been caused by the accident at all. It is therefore crucial to instruct experts and solicitors who fully understand CRPS.

Withy King have taken over the conduct of many cases where medical evidence has not been analysed appropriately. Our clients would otherwise have been forced to settle for a lesser sum than they should have been awarded. We understand the complexity of CRPS cases and effectively recover compensation that accurately reflects the suffering of CRPS.

A claim must usually be submitted to court within three years of the date of the accident.

There are exceptions:

• Date of knowledge;

• Where a claim involves a child, court proceedings must be started 3 years from 18th Birthday.

If you think you have a claim, it is best not to delay. Enquiries need to be made and proceedings issued in Court within three years of the date of the accident. If you would like further information or would like to discuss a potential claim, please contact:
