Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or RSD, is a rare condition doctors do not know much about. In some cases, the nerve damage from trauma can cause this condition to occur. When that happens, it can lead to intense pain and permanent damage. If you are the victim of this type of trauma, discuss your case with our team of New York personal injury lawyers. We can aid in helping you to receive compensation you deserve from this potential malpractice or personal injury claim.
RSD, which is also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, is a chronic pain condition. It is pain that seems extreme given the injury. The condition worsens over time. It usually affects just one area of the body at a time, such as the feet, hands, arms, or legs. The pain then spreads and can include the entire limb.
Please note – in many situations, RSD can be a type of medical malpractice. New York personal injury attorneys at our firm can help you to fight these situations to help you to obtain compensation for your loss, pain and suffering.
Doctors are not sure what the underlying cause is, but it is possible that nerve damage from an injury, including traumatic events such as vehicle accidents, can lead to the condition. The sympathetic nervous system plays a role in this pain response. This leads to the most common symptoms of the condition, including inflammatory symptoms such as redness, swelling and increased temperature.
There are two forms of this condition:
Most people suffer from the first form of this condition. This form occurs after a minor injury happens in the area of the nerve.
In the second form of the condition, severe trauma occurs to a limb and the nerve damage is often severe and noticeable. Many things can cause this type of incident, including any trauma to the affected limb, such as:

I would highly recommend the law firm of Gersowitz, Libo and Korek if you are looking for legal help and representation that is thorough, honest and personal. My family and I were faced with a horrible situation and both Jeff Korek and Ed Gersowitz were there from the beginning, keeping us well informed throughout the process and were always available at a moment's notice whenever we needed them. Their support staff was just as attentive and conscientious. They definitely made an awful situation easier to handle, and I am very grateful to all of them for that!
Working with Mr. Fruhling and associates has been an amazing experience, mainly because of the transparency in regards to every aspect. He was very patient with me. When I didn’t understand certain things him & his team explained step by step without any problems. Michael and his team constantly gave it their all to make sure they were always on top of everything. Cannot thank him and the rest of the office enough for all they have accomplished for me. Thank you!
I have worked with Gersowitz Libo & Korek to resolve a civil case concerning the death of my parents at the hands of a drunk driver. I can't say enough about the professionalism, empathy, care and competence every single person in this firm had regarding my case. I was constantly kept up tp date on next steps and feel that by working with this firm. Justice was realized.. I 100% recommend this firm if anyone is in need.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you! I hope this day never comes but I wouldn't hesitate to ask for your help again.
