Generally speaking, permanent impairment arising from chronic pain, which is defined as “An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage” is excluded under the WorkCover WA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment.
One exception to this is complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). There is a very specific criterion for the diagnosis of CRPS in the workers compensation system. The criteria is set out on page 87 to 89 of the WorkCover WA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment.
Assessment of whole person impairment (WPI) in the workers compensation system is conducted by WorkCover WA approved medical specialists (AMS). Your WPI rating is one of the main factors in your CRPS workers compensation payouts. However, not all Approved Medical Specialists are equally experienced in CRPS.
Foyle Legal has extensive experience in working with a network of AMS doctors on CRPS compensation claims. We know the importance of choosing the right AMS for you, and excluding diagnoses that are similar to CRPS but are not CRPS, such as disuse atrophy, unrecognised general medical problems, somatoform disorders, and factitious disorder.
Injured workers who have CRPS will often overcome the not less than 15% threshold to bring a common law claim against their employer. Depending on your circumstances, electing for a common law claim may result in a better workers compensation settlement. However, not all common law claims are free of risk or meet the individual goal of the injured worker.
Foyle Legal workers compensation lawyers can guide you every step on way to ensure that you receive fair compensation payouts for CRPS claims in Western Australia.
Insurers often fight CRPS claims harder than other claims, it is because the potential payouts for CRPS claims are higher, and the process of diagnosing CRPS is less straightforward as it rarely shows up on the scans. The common tactics employed by the insurance companies are:
Foyle Legal has extensive experience fighting for injured workers with CRPS claims. We help our CRPS clients to:
We help CRPS clients to get unbiased medical evidence for a proper diagnosis and prove causation.
With the help of medical and treatment professionals, Foyle Legal helps CRPS compensation clients to prove causation and calculate the appropriate quantum (i.e., compensation payout amount) of your CRPS claim that factors in all the future needs.
We have successfully helped many CRPS compensation clients. We use our experience to make sure your claim is progressed appropriately and does not get delayed by delaying tactics.
CRPS is poorly understood by many medical and treatment doctors. To date, the treatment options for CRPS have been limited. Foyle Legal supports CRPS compensation clients by alleviating financial burdens associated with the legal costs for running the CRPS compensation claim and sharing treatment information based on working with many CRPS clients.
Because the insurers tend to fight hard against CRPS claims, it usually takes longer to reach a CRPS settlement. Our No Win No Fee solution is aimed to provide injured workers with financial relief associated with the legal costs so that you can focus on getting the best compensation payout for CRPS claims as opposed to the legal costs.
CRPS can be a life-long condition, and effective treatment can make a big difference in the quality of life.
Many of our CRPS clients have exhausted traditional treatment options and have not received an expected outcome. As a result, many of our CRPS clients have turned to the latest treatments that are not currently available in Australia. These treatments have variable levels of success. If required, we are happy to act as a sounding board for CRPS clients with information we learned from clients with similar conditions.
Please be aware that we are not treatment specialists, and what we learned from other clients’ CRPS treatment may not work for you. Our learning on CRPS treatments should not rely on as treatment advice.
The average CRPS settlement in Western Australia can vary significantly based on factors such as severity, impact on daily life, medical expenses, and the experience level of your personal injury lawyer who advocates for your personal injury claim. Generally, CRPS settlements range from AUD 30,000 to AUD 250,000 or more for complex common law claims. However, each case is unique, and the specific amount depends on individual circumstances. Consult a personal injury lawyer for tailored advice on your CRPS claim.
