Nerve damage may be caused by:

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
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
