Jane Doe slipped off the broken bricks of the front steps of Little Switzerland and suffered torn ligaments in her ankle which led to rapid development of symptoms consistent with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome 1 (CRPS-1), a chronic pain syndrome that can be crippling.  Over the course of three years, she was diagnosed by eight different physicians with RSD/CRPS in her left lower extremity which spread to her left upper extremity and her face. Her physical impairment was rated by as severe by physicians, and her symptoms were progressive in nature. The case was settled for a confidential amount at mediation prior to trial.
