San Diego, California attorneys Doug A. Pettit and Robert A. Ortiz of Pettit Kohn Ingrassia & Lutz, represented an individual who worked as a sales representative for a local tile company, that developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), after being injured on the job. The plaintiff was struck on the top of her right foot by a ceramic tile that fell off of a tile board, subsequently causing years of debilitating pain, necessitating the implantation of a spinal cord stimulator.  

An individual with CRPS, previously referred to as RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), can be difficult to represent. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, more than 90 percent of CRPS cases are caused by trauma or injury. However, claims made to insurance companies are met with skepticism and reluctance, due largely to the severity of pain that is not easily associated with a specific injury and may appear to be less traumatic than the medical imagery depicts. DK Global has assisted a number of attorneys by creating compelling visual presentations that enhance their argument and effectively tie the specific incident and injury to the subsequent condition.

The below Medical Animation details the distinct process of pain receptors in the plaintiff’s foot, that deliver nerve impulses to the brain, then back through the sympathetic nervous system to the area of injury. The animation also includes a comprehensive depiction of a spinal cord stimulator procedure.
