What  is RSD?

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy also now commonly called Complex Regional Pain Syndrome  (CRPS)  is  a nerve injury that medical doctors can do little to cure.  It is recognized that:

  • Even minor accidents can cause RSD;
  • RSD causes the  body’s nerve system to go  haywire resulting in unrelenting pain;
  • RSD pain can be torturous. Most describe the pain as a burning pain, similar to sticking one’s hand on hot charcoals;
  • RSD Injury victims have hypersensitivity to pain so that the slightest touch, or even a breeze causes tremendous pain;
  • Over time, RSD spreads to other extremities;
  • After 1-2 years, if symptoms do not improve, RSD is incurable;
  • RSD  prevents a person from returning to work, social activities, and impairs them from daily living activities; the
    condition requires lots of pain medicine, and many types of medical procedures, including spinal stimulators, pain pumps, and other drastic procedures—just to deal with the pain;
  • RSD causes major depression;
  • Many  RSD victims want to cut off their affected limbs, and some commit suicide; and
  • RSD is recognized as the most painful disease on earth according the McGill Pain Scale—above that of cancer pain,
    child birth, and traumatic amputation.

Houston RSD Lawyer Joe Stephens has handled and actually tried  many  jury trials for RSD injury victims.  His 26 years of experience handling these cases is invaluable when evaluating and preparing RSD cases.  Unless  a lawyer understands the trouble, symptoms, and tribulations unique to RSD cases, he is ineffective and incompetent to represent RSD injury cases.   In one case, for instance, the iniital offer to another firm was only $15,000 before Mr. Stephens got involved.  That case later settled for over $3,500,000.00.   Experience handling RSD cases means the difference between winning and losing.  That is why Joe Stephens, who has tried over 100 jury trials, and has handled dozens of  RSD injury cases is the best lawyer for you.  Please call him at 713-224-0000 right now, where he will discuss your case for FREE. He will advance all expenses on your case, and only gets paid if he settles or wins your case.   You never owe anything unless you obtain a successful settlement or win a jury trial, and then you only pay Mr.  Stephens out of your recovery.
