Complex regional pain syndrome, or CRPS for short, is a painful, chronic nerve condition that almost always affects the limbs and can be very difficult to diagnose. Doctors believe that CRPS is the result of damage to the peripheral and central nervous systems. CRPS will generally “flare up,” or become something that you notice, after you suffer from some sort of a traumatic injury.
CRPS impacts the way that pain signals travel between your brain and the rest of your body. To put it in very simple terms, CRPS makes your brain think that a certain part of your body (such as your knee) is still injured when it isn’t. This means that you’ll still experience the pain of your injury long after it has actually healed.
For a more detailed explanation about what CRPS and how it can affect you or a loved one, please see our CRPS informational page.
CRPS isn’t something that just happens out of the blue. According to medical professionals, CRPS is typically triggered by a history of traumatic injury that is generally limited to a particular area of the body. A broken arm, for example, can lead to a flare up of CRPS. Even minor injuries, however, such as cuts, scrapes, and abrasions could lead to CRPS. Sometimes, it’s hard to know what really caused your CRPS because it can be triggered by so many different things.
The May Firm often sees CRPS cases arising out of some sort of traumatic personal injury accident, such as a car accident or a slip and fall. In Long Beach in particular, we are representing more and more clients who are suffering from CRPS after being involved in an auto accident or being bitten by a dog.
Once triggered, CRPS is a life-long ailment that can leave sufferers in a world of pain. The attorneys at The May Firm have experience connecting CRPS to a personal injury accident – it isn’t just a coincidence that you developed CRPS immediately after being hit by a car! You should not still be having difficulty walking a year after your broken toes have healed or picking up your three-year-old nine months after your fractured forearm was taken out of its cast.
As if chronic pain isn’t bad enough, CRPS can potentially lead to long-term disability. If left untreated, CRPS can lead to muscle dystrophy and even complete immobilization. You may also experience a loss of dexterity.
Although CRPS can have many causes, many of The May Firm’s clients become symptomatic after they have been involved in a personal injury accident. Long Beach is a hotbed for car, truck, and motorcycle accidents due, in large part, to the fact that it is such a big city with so many people. Unfortunately, a number of our clients who suffered one of these accidents now also suffer from chronic pain due to CRPS. Others have experienced a CRPS trigger after taking a serious spill from a bicycle while trying to avoid a negligently driven car or an oblivious pedestrian.
Fortunately, The May Firm has resources for our Long Beach CRPS clients. We are able to put you in touch with physical therapists and physicians who can prescribe medications to help ease your CRPS symptoms. We want to make sure that you are connected to the long-term resources that you’ll need to help manage this life-long problem.
At The May Firm, our clients are our family. We are sympathetic to your pain and the hardships that you’re faced with after being injured in a personal injury accident. We are especially sympathetic to our clients who are unfortunate enough to suffer from CRPS after their injuries have healed.
Our personal injury lawyers are well-equipped and able to handle some of the most complex CRPS cases that come our way. We recognize some of the signs and symptoms of CRPS and are always careful to keep this condition in the back of our minds when assessing a client’s case. If we have even a hunch that you may be suffering from CRPS, we’re happy to bring that to your attention and refer you to a specialist who can either confirm or dispel our suspicions. Better safe than sorry, right?
The May Firm is dedicated to helping you recover the compensation that you deserve for your injuries after someone hurt you – including any damages associated with CRPS being triggered. While you rest and work on your long-term health, we will fight for you!

Contact us to get started. It is important to have the proper legal representation on your side if you’re involved in a motorcycle crash. Often wrongful blame is placed on the rider in a multi-vehicle collision due to the increased risk that comes with riding a motorcycle. Insurance companies are reluctant to side with the motorcyclist and oftentimes will attempt to place the full or partial blame on them. Don’t accept that blame and the legal repercussions that come with it.
