For CRPS Diagnosed Patients, There’s New Information, Help, and Hope

A CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) diagnosis can be a relief to many people. Knowing that their pain is real, validated, and lending a name to everything they’ve felt possibly for years is a relief, mentally. Despite the relief a CRPS diagnosis may bring to a patient’s mental state temporarily, the toll chronic pain takes on the psyche of a patient is immeasurable. Living with CRPS, a disease dubbed “the suicide disease” due to its lack of proven symptom relief, is an endless nightmare of doctors, treatments, procedures, and tests that all lead down the same road: endless pain and suffering both physically and mentally for which there may never be a standard cure.

Neck and Spine Injuries After Car Accident: The Personal Injury Perspective

After a motor vehicle accident, victims are left with any number of injuries that span from head-to-toe. Strains, sprains, broken bones, bumps and bruises, dislocations, and whiplash injuries can all cause a victim widespread chronic pain. However, one of the most serious injuries sustained in a road-related accident is any impact to the head and neck area. Spinal Cord Injury and Traumatic Brain Injury can heavily impact the victim’s ability to live a full, independent life.

Car Insurance Coverage Facts Florida Drivers Must Know!

South Florida is quickly becoming infamous for its unmatched heavy traffic and high rate of car accidents. Drivers in the Miami area tend to be faster paced, career driven men and women who want to get where they’re going and they want to get to their destination fast. It’s because of this fast paced lifestyle, and the lack of attention paid to the rules of the road, that auto insurance rates have soared over the last several years, especially in the south. Just like several other states that cater to a high paced lifestyle, as well as heavy traffic at nearly all hours of the day (Los Angeles and New York City, for example), Miami has some of the highest automotive insurance premiums in the country–and what’s worse: hardly any Floridians are covered, or they’re woefully underinsured if they are.

Brain Injury Awareness Month: Further Exploring the Legal Side of TBI

With an injury that can be proven such as broken bones, herniated disks, Spinal Cord Injury, or any number of other injuries visible either from the victim or through their diagnostic imaging, the road to recovering damages has fewer twists and turns. With these injuries, the judge and the insurance company can more readily see these often catastrophic outcomes (amputations, broken bones, disfigurement, burns, the need for a wheelchair or cain) and can rule on damages to be awarded accordingly.
