Claiming for nerve damage

Nerve damage can be hugely debilitating, often being accompanied by severe pain as well as loss of motor function. The significant impact that a nerve injury has on one’s quality of life is only intensified when it has occurred as a result of medical negligence. Unfortunately, nerve injuries do frequently occur during surgical procedures such as hip or knee replacements, hernia repairs and tumour removals. Nerves can be damaged or, in some instances, severed completely. Negligent use of syringes by medical professionals can also lead to nerve damage, whether this is to the spinal cord during epidural insertion, or to nerves in the arm while taking blood.

Nerve damage is one of the most common injuries suffered by patients caused by surgical error. This is because surgeons are constantly at risk of harming the 100 billion neurons running along the system of nerves they are in direct contact with as they perform operations.

Injury to a nerve caused by error or negligence can have a traumatic impact upon the whole family, especially if damage was avoidable and if sufficient, appropriate care had not been taken during a treatment procedure.

If you have suffered nerve damage due to medical negligence, talk to Your Legal Friend. We have years of experience working on medical negligence cases, many of which have involved nerve damage claims. From a legal point of view, we know how complicated these cases can be. More importantly, we understand that they can leave the victim feeling incredibly vulnerable, even embarrassed.

We will ensure that your claim is handled carefully and professionally by specialist solicitors, while working alongside medical experts in the neurology field, to guarantee the best results for you.
