Tips for a Successful CRPS Case

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Handling a CRPS lawsuit can be time consuming and complicated. And, unfortunately, if the case is handled by an attorney who doesn’t specialize in CRPS cases, the case may be lost. For an attorney to handle an CRPS case, he must have knowledge of the particular area of the law involved, knowledge of medicine generally, and knowledge of CRPS in particular.

As a qualified CRPS attorney in San Diego, there are a number of way I can ensure that cases involving patients with CRPS get resolved quickly and successfully.

Stick to One Doctor

Jumping from doctor to doctor can be problematic. During trial, the defense may argue that you sought doctor after doctor until you found one who would report what you wanted. You may be portrayed as being emotionally unbalanced. Multiple doctor and insurance claims may also raise a red flag in court.

My advice: Stick to one doctor. A search for a cure may do more harm than good. Be sure to communicate with the doctor, telling him or her when you have new symptoms and about your limitations.

Be Honest

Be honest to your doctor and CRPS lawyer about your symptoms. Try not to leave out any detail. This information will probably be relayed in court, and if it doesn’t add up – the defense may challenge it. You don’t want to put your credibility at risk.

Be Proactive

Try to be proactive to the best of your ability. Be well prepared. Keep appointments with doctors and counsel. Make sure the information you are providing is thorough and consistent. Most importantly, follow your attorney’s instructions during preparation for defense medical examinations, depositions and hearings or trials.

The thought of filing a CRPS lawsuit may seem overwhelming, but if you have a qualified CRPS attorney on your side, your chances are extremely high for a successful outcome. In the San Diego area? Give us a call. We can help you get what you deserve.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
