Understanding Nerve Damage 

Nerve damage, also known as neuropathy, refers to a condition where there is damage or dysfunction in the nerves.  There are different types of nerve damage, and it can occur in both the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside the brain and spinal cord) and the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord).

Nerve damage can lead to debilitating and life-altering results such as:

  • bowel or bladder damage
  • sexual dysfunction
  • twitching
  • paralysis
  • pain, sensitivity or numbness
  • tingling
  • burning sensations
  • muscle atrophy (or wastage)
  • Weakness

Your rights and eligibility

You can make a compensation claim if you suffered an injury because of someone else’s negligence. That may be due to medical negligence or  a personal injury caused in whole or in part by someone else’s action or inaction, including:

  • Improper care or medical treatment.
  • Delayed or missed diagnosis of a stroke
  • Delays in diagnosis or treatment or inappropriate treatment of conditions that can lead to nerve damage
  • Surgical errors
  • Dedication or treatment administered without warnings of the risk of nerve damage
  • Delayed diagnosis or mismanagement of cauda equina
  • Exposure to toxins such as arsenic, lead or mercury
  • A traumatic injury such as a road traffic collision, injuries related to an accident that was not your fault or an assault

Our solicitors can look at the evidence and help you understand if it is likely there may be blame. If there is, we can investigate and pursue a claim on your behalf.

How can compensation help?

If you have suffered nerve damage or paralysis you may face challenges in performing everyday tasks and require specialised care and support.

Compensation can help to pay for the things you need to live your life closest to the way it was before your injury. Although compensation cannot undo the harm caused by lasting nerve damage, what it can do is help you to access treatment to ease those symptoms and to relieve the ongoing pressure on you and your loved ones. It can also help with the impact of loss of income or help you meet the costs of any additional treatment, specialist equipment, vehicles or house adaptations you may require.

Some examples of what compensation can fund include:

  • physiotherapy
  • pain management
  • carers or a support worker
  • private surgery/treatment
  • complementary therapies
  • loss of earnings
  • home adaptations
  • specialist equipment
  • an adapted vehicle
  • someone to help you with domestic chores if your injuries mean you will no longer be able to do them yourself

Nerve damage compensation FAQ’s

Compensation payments for nerve damage could be in the low thousands up to hundreds of thousands or even more depending on the specifics of the claim.

Compensation claims in general can take a lot of time to complete. That is because we first have to investigate what happened and get the person that caused your injury to accept responsibility for it. We then need to understand all the long term needs that injury has created so we can ensure that the compensation we secure for you will be able to meet them. In many cases we can secure interim payments, these are funds we can secure and send to you to meet immediate needs you may have as the result of your injuries, before the claim is complete.

If your loved one is a child you care for or someone lacking capacity you can make a compensation claim on their behalf.

In cases where someone suffers from nerve damage or paralysis and later dies, a family member may be able to make a claim or proceed with an ongoing claim.

It is always easier to explain things over the phone so give us a free call so we can discuss with you the specifics of what happened to them and how we can help.

Our team has decades of experience helping people determine this. We will go through the specifics of what happened to you and review your medical records to understand what may have gone wrong and who is responsible for it.
