If you’ve been involved in an accident any time in the last three years that wasn’t your fault and it has caused Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), you could be owed compensation.
CRPS is a type of long-term pain that can cause considerable suffering and discomfort for the individual, and it is most often caused due to an injury or trauma. Claiming compensation can assist in making life easier, allowing you to access the best treatment and care, in addition to aiding with other matters, such as replacing lost income.

Common questions about CRPS claims
How long do I have to claim CRPS compensation?
As with most compensation claims, in the UK, you generally have three years to make a CRPS compensation claim.
There are certain exceptions to the three year time frame. It counts from the ‘date of knowledge’ instead of when the accident occurred. This means you have three years from when you realised you were injured and that it was the result of someone else’s actions.
Exceptions also apply where the injured party is under 18 years of age or did not have mental capacity to make a claim.
For further details in concern to time frames for personal injury claims, such as CRPS, head over to our personal injury claims page.
How much can you claim for CRPS?
How much you can claim for your CRPS will depend on a range of factors, such as the extent of the CRPS injury and the impact that it has had on your current life and in the foreseeable future.
The factors that the courts will look at when determining how much CRPS compensation you will receive include:
- Financial losses due to your injury – where your injury has prevented you from being able to work
- Expected future financial losses due to your injury – if your injury prevents you from being able to work in the future
- Any medical expenses – any expenses paid both in the UK and abroad, including travel to and from any medical appointments
- Modifications made to your home
- Pain, suffering, and psychological trauma experienced – both your physical and emotional health
- Loss of holiday enjoyment
- Cost of the holiday and travel to/from
- Any other financial losses/expenses due to your injury
During your initial consultation, we can discuss whether you have a claim and the potential CRPS compensation you could receive.
