Chronic Pain: Rare Condition Ends Promising Career

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Chronic Pain Lawyer. While a significant amount of attention is paid to common medical conditions such as heart disease, cancer, and strokes, rare conditions can turn people’s lives upside down. Such was the case of a young lawyer who was given a diagnosis of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) which led to the loss of both of her legs.

As a Sacramento Brain Injury Attorney, as well as a Sacramento Motorcycle Accident Lawyer, I am frequently asked by both clients and non-clients alike about what to expect if asked to give a deposition.

You may, or may not be a Justin Bieber fan.  I personally like Jackie Greene and Mumbo Gumbo.  But you should definitely not be a fan of Justin Bieber’s deposition style!

Hike Davis!

Looking to get out in nature to enjoy this nice fall weather? Pack a lunch, lace up your shoes, and visit the UC Davis Arboretum this weekend! The Arboretum is stretched over 100 acres and features 17 different gardens. This trail has something to offer everyone; with a 3.5 loop path, this trail is great for joggers and bicyclists too! Picnic tables can be found in the Redwood Grove and near Putah Creek Lodge.

My personal injury firm has represented a great many people over the years who have suffered very serious nerve damage as a result of motor vehicle collisions.

We are excited to learn that a team of researchers from the University of Minnesota, Virginia Tech, University of Maryland, Princeton University, and Johns Hopkins University has figured out how to use 3D printing for nerve growth.

I have represented many, many people over the years horribly injured in catastrophic collisions.  Few are more heartbreaking than the loss of a limb.

Head_CT_scanRecognizing a post- concussion syndrome (PCS) case is often the most difficult aspect of representing people suffering a closed head injury.

Assessment of such cases requires attorneys and intake staff to understand the basic aspects of the medicine behind such injuries, the sympotomolgy that often accompanies these injuries, as well as to recognize how to develop the damages in the case. One key aspect in evaluation of a PCS case is the understanding that the potential client may not be able to aid in recognizing or developing your understanding of the injury the he or she has sustained. As a result of their injuries, PCS clients are generally unaware that they have sustained a closed head injury nor do they appreciate the impact of the injury upon their lives. In many cases the consequences of such an injury are quite subtle and difficult to detect in casual conversation.
