Causes of Nerve Damage
Nerve damage often occurs when the nerves are compressed, stretched, or severed. In many cases, nerve damage can be permanent, since little can be done to repair a severed nerve. Compressed nerves may be improved by surgery, rest, and physical therapy.
Nerve damage may be caused by:
- Surgical Errors
- Auto Accidents
- Commercial Trucking Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Public Transportation Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Slip and Falls
Recovering Damages for Nerve Damage
Nerve damage can be a serious and permanent condition. Nerves act as the body’s communications network, by sending messages, or impulses, from the brain to muscles and organs throughout the body. Nerve damage disrupts the brain’s signals and can affect the body in a variety of ways.
Those who have suffered nerve damage as a result of the negligence of another may be entitled to compensatory damages and, possibly, punitive damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Punitive damages are meant to punish the negligent party for his or her wrongdoing, and deter future grossly negligent or intentional wrongdoing. Compensatory damages include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income (past and future)
- Loss of normal life
- Pain and suffering
