At Law Offices of Geraldine Ly, I represent individuals who suffer neurological conditions, nerve damage or deep pain that stems from injuries and accidents sustained either on the job or due to the negligence of others. These individuals often face deep frustration in achieving an initial diagnosis, then in obtaining the benefits they deserve for the pain, whether in workers’ compensation or personal injury compensation.
It is not uncommon for neurological issues to stem from orthopedic injuries. Following a seemingly insignificant foot or wrist injury, nerve damage can develop, causing serious pain that is difficult to diagnose.
These conditions can include Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). These conditions are generally caused by some sort of trauma in that region of the body, such as a fracture, deep muscle injury or soft tissue injury. Inflammation of the nerves around the injury causes the body to go into panic mode, resulting in heightened sensitivity of those nerves and pain. Generally, the pain is experienced in the lower extremities. Treatment for these conditions often requires injections in the back or spine to mitigate the pain.
Other common neurological issues include:
These injuries and conditions can be difficult and complex to diagnose. Not only do many medical professionals fail to recognize the symptoms, but very few attorneys are equipped to handle these cases.
At Law Offices of Geraldine Ly, I am deeply familiar with complex neurological conditions and how they stem from orthopedic injuries often suffered in workplace injuries. Many clients come to me after failing to reach resolutions with a different firm that does not understand the complexities of their pain.
