Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) can transform even a minor injury into years of debilitating pain and disability. It has been described as one of the most painful types of pain. Thousands of people develop CRPS after traumatic injury in the UK each year but, despite its prevalence and the suffering caused to those it affects, the condition often remains undiagnosed and is misunderstood.

Accident victims are at risk of losing out on the compensation they deserve after their physical injury later develops into chronic pain or CRPS. Defendant insurers often deny the existence of the condition or that it was caused by the defendant’s negligence. Doctors may be reluctant or lack the understanding  to diagnose it. Severe, debilitating pain can affect the sufferer’s daily activities, relationships and their ability to work. They may experience severe psychological symptoms and ongoing financial hardship but still be denied compensation on the basis of an outdated (and disproved) assumption that CRPS is ‘all in their head’. 

Boyes Turner’s injury lawyers understand CRPS and other chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia. We are skilled in helping accident victims affected by serious chronic pain conditions secure the rehabilitation treatment, support and compensation they deserve.

Why use Boyes Turner for your CRPS injury compensation claim?

Accident compensation claims for injuries involving CRPS must be handled by solicitors with experience of complex, serious, physical and psychological injury, chronic pain and CRPS. These cases are often complicated by incorrect or delayed diagnosis, lack of medical and (defendant) insurer understanding. Our clients need specialist support and carefully managed rehabilitation using a multidisciplinary team approach. We understand the immediate and longer-term needs of our CRPS clients and are skilled in securing funded rehabilitation, interim payments and settlements to ensure that our clients’ needs are met.

Recent cases:

  • £135,000 compensation for a healthcare assistant who suffered facial injuries, fibromyalgia and PTSD after being head-butted by a patient at work. Settlement was achieved despite the defendant employer’s initial suggestion that our client’s fibromyalgia had pre-dated the assault.

  • £128,000 settlement in an accident at work claim for a delivery driver who was crushed when a heavy cage tipped over, causing a fractured spine, chronic pain and psychological injury.  The settlement reflected a 30% reduction in the full value of our client's claim to reflect his own contributory negligence.

What our clients say


Kim at Boyes Turner was recommended to me after I had received ineffective service from another company. From the outset, Kim has been professional, reassuring and supportive. I have always had faith in her ability to get the best outcome, not only financially, but also in helping my rehabilitation from a traumatic brain injury. She is friendly and empathetic, with unquestionable professional integrity. She was quick to grasp the important issues in my case, was meticulous in her investigating the details and analysing them, realistic in what the outcomes were likely to be and achieved a successful outcome.

I would not hesitate in recommending her and Boyes Turner.

"Amazing people"

Almost 5 years ago my sons suffered a life changing brain injury accident. A new life for everyone, so many unknowns so many difficult decisions. I met Claire and the team shortly after the accident. So many questions answered but more than that, amazing lovely people. Claire has been guiding me and the family throughout this ordeal with such compassion, there every time I needed her we couldn’t of asked for a nicer person. I have met many others with in Boyes Turner and all have been genuine lovely people, I’m now working with Ruth and Lindsay from the court of protection. Again, I can't say enough about them amazing lovely people. They truly do won't the best for my son and they did and continue to do so.

"Personal Injury Claim"

Claire is exceptionally knowledgeable in the personal injury legal domain, especially in the specific area of my injury. From our very first conversation, she was clear in explaining the potential different routes that the process could take and provided me with expectations of what I could expect along the journey.

She ensured that all bases were covered, organising meetings, discussions and necessary specialist appointments, in order to bring together the case and take it forward. Claire was then able to use her extensive pool of contacts, to appoint an "area leading" barrister, to represent me.

Overall, I was very pleased with appointing Claire and Boyes Turner to act as my solicitor for the legal claim that I pursued. Thank you for all of your support.

"Boyes turner workplace injury claim"

I approached Claire Roantree of Boyes Turner in regards to making a claim about a workplace burns injury. It was something that had scarred me physically and mentally and taken a huge toll on the lives of me and my family. Claire wasted no time in finding out what happened and made sure I was treated by known experts and quickly finding an answer to my burns scarring and how I could be treated to help manage my pain. Claire also helped me by appointing a psychiatrist to understand my situation and help me cope with post traumatic stress disorder. As well as taking as much stress of the claim away, she was thorough in every situation, making sure I had the best possible claim, and handled it all expertly, I am so very grateful to her and her team. They have helped guide my life back into a positive direction and I can't thank her enough!
