Although nerve damage is usually the result of an accident or medical procedure, it can also be caused by negligent actions. This is particularly true if a healthcare professional fails to take appropriate care of you after treating you for an injury. If you have been injured as a result of their negligence, then we can help you claim compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering.
What is a nerve damage claim?
A nerve damage claim is a compensation claim for nerve damage caused by medical negligence. The injury may be physical or psychological, and can affect any part of the body. Nerve damage can result in long-term pain and disability, which makes it important to seek compensation as soon as possible after an accident.
The NHS and private healthcare providers are not excluded from liability if they have caused you harm; however, they will usually bear responsibility only if there was gross negligence on their part (for example, if they failed to ensure that your treatment was carried out safely). This means that you may still be able to make claims against these organisations even though doing so would mean pursuing both the NHS and private healthcare providers simultaneously – which could prove difficult or impossible!
What causes nerve damage?
Nerve damage is a common occurrence, and not all cases of nerve damage are related to medical negligence. However, in some cases, you may have a claim for medical negligence if your doctor or other health care provider failed to diagnose or treat an illness or injury that resulted in permanent damage to your nerves.
Nerve damage can be caused by a number of factors:
• Medical professionals’ failure to diagnose or treat illnesses and injuries properly (for example, when they don’t provide proper treatment).
• Using outdated technology (such as using outdated X-rays).
How can the negligence of a healthcare professional lead to nerve damage?
Nerves are the main communication pathway between your brain and your muscles. They carry signals to your body and help you control movement, feeling, and other bodily functions. If a nerve is damaged or severed during surgery or medical treatment, it can lead to permanent problems with movement (paralysis) or sensation (feeling numb).
In addition to nerve damage caused by surgery or medical treatment itself, there’s also the possibility of unintentional injuries during an operation that causes nerve damage. For example, if you have an accident while at the hospital for some reason (such as falling down a flight of stairs), this could result in injury-related nerve damage—for example if someone trips over something on their way out of their room and sprains their ankle joint once they land on the floor below them again after falling down those stairs
Can I make a claim for nerve damage caused by medical negligence?
