How Much Compensation For CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome)
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a condition acquired usually after an injury to a limb. The subsequent extreme burning pain and/or difficulty moving or touching the affected area is not necessarily indicative of how severe the original injury is. For instance, if you have suffered a small fracture, the pain of CRPS can be overwhelming and out of proportion to what would be considered a minor injury.
The result of the condition (sometimes called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) can be debilitating and can have serious consequences for sufferers. If you are suffering from CRPS as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation.
The condition can have a major effect on your everyday life, and in some cases leave you unable to work. Because of this, making a compensation claim can make a big difference. Not only will you be compensated for your pain and suffering but you may also be able to recover any expenses you have incurred as a result of your condition.
The table below gives you an idea of how much compensation for CRPS you may be entitled to. However, it is important to note that these figures are for your CRPS only. Things such as loss of earnings, will be calculated separately by a solicitor in the event that you make a claim.
