Burning Nights CRPS Support is a UK national charity dedicated to raising awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

CRPS Legal Panel

Burning Nights CRPS Support has established a small legal panel containing law firms who specialise in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) legal claims.

We’re pleased to be working with these law firms that we have carefully chosen, as they all specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and legal cases where injuries have caused the onset of CRPS. Unfortunately there are very few law firms who have the knowledge and experience of dealing with CRPS legal claims however they have started.

Obviously we don’t want anyone in a position where a legal claim has arisen relating to their Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. However if anyone is in this position then we want to provide any Complex Regional Pain Syndrome patient with the best legal advice with law firms and solicitors who not only understand about this devastating chronic condition but who are experienced in dealing with CRPS legal claims.

We do suggest that you contact a number of these experienced solicitors and law firms for an initial consultation before selecting a firm. Not only is experience very important but also finding someone you trust, who understands and believes you and someone you can develop a good working relationship with. The local firm may not be the best option as CRPS legal claims are notoriously complex, difficult to handle and can take some years to finally settle.

All the CRPS law firms below all work across England and Wales. Therefore the location of the law firms does not matter in regards your legal claim.

All the firms listed on our CRPS legal panel have all signed up to our Code of Conduct.

* Please note that we receive an annual donation from each of the law firms on our CRPS legal panel. Any contact you have with any of the law firms on our legal panel is completely private and confidential between you and the firm.


Here is the list of the law firms, in alphabetical order, on our Legal Panel:
