Claiming compensation for nerve damage

Our nervous system is one of the most important aspects of our body – it is responsible for almost every function that our bodies perform from voluntary to involuntary activities. Ensuring that our bodies are functioning to maximum capacity is an incredibly important function of the nervous system and without a fully functioning nervous system we can start to lose functionality in certain areas of our body.

Nerve damage can range from a slightly uncomfortable pinched nerve to the complete destruction of a set of nerves and can therefore either be relatively minor or serious depending on the specific injury. Whatever the type of injury, nerves can often be incredibly difficult and expensive to heal, so if you have been left out of pocket through no fault of your own then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. 

How do our nerves work?

Our nerves work by transmitting message from our brains right around our bodies. There are several different types of nerves in the human body and these include:

  • Motor nerves – they control messages that travel from your brain to the rest of your body by passing them safely down your spinal cord
  • Sensory nerves – these nerves work the opposite way to Motor nerves and pass messages back from our senses to our brain, this can include what we feel, hear or see
  • Autonomic nerves – these are almost like automatic nerves they help to ensure the correct function of involuntary parts of our bodies including heart rate, blood pressure and digestion.

How does nerve damage occur?

Nerve damage can occur in a number of ways but they are commonly damaged when the skin or surrounding tissue is impaled or severed. Any accident which causes a deep cut into the skin has the potential to sever a number of nerves, these injuries are exemplified in areas such as the hand or leg where the number of nerves are increased and the actual skin area is decreased, meaning that a deep cut is far more likely to sever your nerves. 

Who could I make a claim against?

Nerve damage generally occurs as the result of an incision that is made into your skin. This could be as the result of an accident or a physical attack. Regardless of the cause, if you have suffered nerve injury through the negligence of another person then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident you may be able to claim against the other driver and if you are injured through a physical attack then you may be eligible to claim against the attacker.
