If you’ve been in an accident and developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) as a result of someone else’s negligence, you could well be entitled to make a personal injury claim for the suffering you have experienced. While the condition may be complex, at Brian Barr we aim to make the compensation process as straightforward and easy to manage as possible, so you can focus on improving your condition.
In this article we aim to provide some advice on making a compensation claim for CRPS. If you’re unsure on how to proceed with your own situation, our team of CRPS experts are on hand to help.
When can you make a claim for CRPS?
Where CRPS has been caused in an accident which wasn’t your fault, the following conditions must be met in order to bring a CRPS claim for compensation:
1. You are owed a duty of care by the defendant (the other party), and
2. The defendant was negligent in breaching that duty of care to you, and
3. The negligence caused the injury and losses that you are seeking to recover by way of compensation.
If you believe the above applies to you then you may well be perfectly entitled to make a CRPS claim. If the above does apply to you, is advised that you make to your CRPS claim as soon as possible after your accident to give you the best chance of claiming the compensation you deserve.
Advice for making a CRPS claim
Ensure your solicitor is a specialist in CRPS
CRPS is an often misunderstood condition, and cases are often difficult and complex. While there are many personal injury solicitors available to deal with CRPS claims, it is vital to choose a lawyer who is a specialist in the field. As leading CRPS lawyers, we specialise in many CRPS cases, working on behalf of our clients to get them the CRPS compensation they’re owed.

The general rule for making a CRPS claim is that any claim for personal injury must be brought within three years of the negligence taking place. There are exceptions to this rule in some cases which can be assessed individually. It is therefore important that you contact solicitors as soon as you believe you may have a claim.
