What is the cause of nerve damage?

Nerve damage frequently involves long-term chronic pain and other lasting issues.  The damage happens during a traumatic event when nerves are stretched, compressed, or broken. And because they play a significant role in every function of the body, if they are damaged, it often means that the victim will sustain severe impairment or paralysis, resulting in pain and a significant reduction in their quality of life. 

Common causes of nerve damage include the following:

When the negligence of another party plays a role in causing these injuries, filing a civil lawsuit is appropriate and is your legal right.

Why do I need a lawyer if I’ve suffered from nerve damage?

Nerve damage claims can be more complicated than most personal injury lawsuits. Unlike bone fractures or lacerations, it may not be visibly obvious to other parties that you suffer from it. Often, proving the extent of your pain can be difficult—even with the help of healthcare experts.

You deserve legal counsel who is well-versed in the medical intricacies of these cases. We have successfully resolved these claims in a wide range of circumstances. We are confident that our experience and skills can give you the best chance at a favorable outcome in your case.

Compensation for nerve damage

If your case is successful, you could be eligible to recover compensation, which includes the following:

Medical costs

Medical bills are likely one of your top priorities. This condition often requires ongoing medical care, and the cost of these treatments can add up quickly. You could recover damages for physical therapy, surgeries, and pain management. In addition to your current medical needs, you could also recover for your future medical care.

Pain and suffering

Chronic pain is one of the most common issues. However, pain is subjective, which means there is generally no uniform value for these claims. The good news is that our team of attorneys will leverage our considerable resources to establish what your pain and suffering claim is worth.  

Lost wages

For some people, suffering nerve damage can make it impossible to return to work. Even when this is temporary, it often results in steep financial consequences. Missing work can be challenging when you are already facing overwhelming medical debt. A personal injury lawsuit could help you recover compensation that pays for your past and future lost wages.

Diminished earnings

Even if you can ultimately return to work, your nerve pain could limit the type of work you can do. This could limit your maximum earnings in the future. A successful lawsuit could recoup those diminished earnings.
