Specialists in Claiming Compensation for Nerve Damage Injuries
Amazingly intricate, the nervous system in the human anatomy dictates not only the rates of pain throughout the body, but also your sense of touch and feel, as well as your body’s movements and overall operation. If you have sustained nerve injuries, you will recognize the damaging effects this can have on your body and your life.
If the nerve damage has been brought about by a trained medical professional, this can be a very bitter pill to swallow. We expect a far greater level of care from a person who has been deemed competent and professional enough to carry out such a medical procedure, and that they would be more careful when it came to dealing with such a delicate part of the human body.
How does nerve damage occur in medical procedures?
Nerve damage sadly occurs with alarming frequency during surgery. Nerves can be damaged during hip replacements, knee replacements, tumour removal and other surgical procedures. Other examples include damage to the inguinal and genito-femoral nerve caused during hernia surgery, and tension-free vaginal tape surgery leading to obturator nerve damage. Even a basic injection can damage nerves, including radial nerve damage caused by the simple act of donating blood, and damage to spinal cords caused by epidurals and median.
The intricacies of the nerve system mean that errors can be widespread, but a surgeon or other medical professional should be trained so that care and thought is provided at all times, which should mean that these types of mistakes should not happen.
Can I Claim Compensation for My Nerve Damage?
If you have suffered nerve damage as an outcome of a medical procedure, you might be able to claim medical negligence compensation.
We’re not talking about insignificant amounts of compensation; straightforward nerve damage can conclude in being given upwards of £10,000, and spinal problems can end up in a large six-figure awards.
No matter what level of nerve damage you have suffered, if it was down to the avoidable fault of a medical professional, you are entitled to claim compensation.
The lasting effects of nerve damage
Your calibre of life can be significantly impaired by nerve damage, and it can even leave you incapacitated, should certain nerves or areas be impacted. Your work and social life can be irreparably destroyed, and you can expect to be compensated for this. For anyone who has had their life ruined by nerve damage as a result of medical negligence, claiming compensation, may prove critical to providing support to lead a reasonably normal life.
Nerve damage compensation – don’t delay your claim
It’s important to know the deadline in which you can claim is comparatively short – just three years from the date of the negligence action or the date on which you realised you had suffered an injury down to a medical error – so it is crucial that you seek the advice of a specialist panel accredited medical negligence solicitor as a top priority as soon as possible.
