Nerve-Related Chronic Pain Conditions
If you have experienced a job related nerve injury in North Carolina which has left you with chronic pain, you may be suffering with a condition known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).These painful conditions affect your entire life and require a great deal of medical attention that can be costly and time-consuming.
To recover workers’ comp benefits, you need an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable about these medical conditions and the workers’ comp laws in North Carolina. Nancy P. White has helped hundreds of North Carolinians, and she can help you, too.
RSD and CRPS involve significant and continuous pain along with swelling, discoloration, and changes in the temperature around the affected areas. These conditions may cause pain anywhere in your body and can be aggravated by simple, everyday activities.
When you are injured at work, your first instinct is to seek the benefits you are entitled to under Workers’ Compensation or to get medical treatment and request reimbursement from your insurance company. However, in many cases involving chronic pain injuries, your employer or Workers’ Compensation will delay or deny your Workers' Comp claim. We can make sure this does not happen.
Some other nerve-related conditions we have experience with are:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Pinched nerves from herniated discs
- Brachial plexopathy
In some cases involving nerve damage, a Worker may be eligible for more than Workers’ Compensation benefits. We have known clients who have also applied for and received Social Security Disability benefits.
