Nerve Injury Claims


    Nerve damage is a condition that causes the human body to become severely weakened. Nerves are responsible for regulating bodily sensation and sensitivity. They are delicate and can be harmed by stretching, cutting, or pressure.

    In the part of the body where a nerve injury has occurred, people feel pain, numbness, and burning. Damage to the nerves is known to create some of the most agonising pain that a person can experience. Living with persistent nerve pain can lead to psychological problems such as depression in the years following an injury.

    The sensitive nature of nerves makes them vulnerable to harm during surgery. Medical professionals are taught to analyse the placement of nerves before doing surgery to understand the risk of nerve damage. They may get it wrong at times, resulting in long-term consequences for you.

    If a medical expert failed to execute their job properly and you sustained a nerve injury as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. Our specialist solicitors have extensive experience in assisting those who have been injured as a result of nerve damage negligence, and we are available to address any queries you may have.

    A typical complication of surgical mistakes or clinical negligence is injury to the nerves. Because of the nature of surgery, a surgeon will frequently be working in close proximity to nerve endings, where a single miscalculation or accident could result in permanent harm. The pain and discomfort you have endured as a result of medical negligence may be covered by a medical negligence claim.

    Nerve damage can happen for a variety of reasons. The following are a few of the more common ones:

    • Antibiotics or steroids for example, can be accidentally injected into or near the nerve
    • Cutting, burning, stretching, or squeezing a nerve during surgery might cause direct harm to it
    • During labour, injury to the brachial plexus.
    • Dental treatment, for example root canals
    • Following the collection of a blood sample, bleeding from a ruptured artery causes nerve compression.


    Nerves are fibres that connect the brain, spinal cord, and other parts of the body, allowing them to send and receive different kinds of information. If damage is done, the sensitivity of the sensations experienced might be altered in one of two ways. A person’s body part becomes numb if sensitivity is diminished, leaving them vulnerable to additional harm or increased sensitivity might result in a sensation of pain.

    Nerve injury symptoms include the following:

    • Numbness
    • Loss of movement or impaired movement.
    • Lack of co-ordination
    • Pains shooting through the body
    • Tingling sensations
    • Hot and cold sensations
    • Muscle wasting.
    • Loss of Bladder Control

    Trauma to the nervous system can have a ripple effect throughout the body. As an illustration, if a person suffers nerve damage in their hand, they will be unable to hold or lift as much. Nerve damage has no known treatment options at this time. Symptoms and discomfort may subside over time, and treatment is available to help ease the suffering.

    These symptoms can be life-altering, and you may be entitled to compensation to assist you in covering any costs you may incur.
