Tagged: CRPS litigation foot drop
My name is Jayne and I am a CRPS sufferer of 6yrs although only diagnosed around 18mths ago.
I am hoping to get a little support and answers from you guys.
I am still involved in a litigation process which is ongoing since my leg was crushed in a car door whilst putting my little ones in their car seats. The other side have admitted liability.
The problem is that they are basically saying that I’m lying about having CRPS and footdrop (I have worn a splint and used a stick since the accident). There is no known medical reason for the foot drop other than CRPS. I have found that many medics don’t understand the syndrome at all and don’t understand that sometimes you can appear absolutely normal!
I would appreciate any of your own stories, advice, comments, anything which may help.
Thanks in advance
