What is Nerve Damage?
Nerves are a type of cell in the human body that are responsible for carrying electrical signals throughout. These electrical signals are critical in all bodily movements and sensations. When a nerve is damaged, the result could be pain, numbness, or loss of feeling. Oftentimes, nerve damage also does not become apparent until days or even weeks after the accident. Our skilled nerve damage attorneys can help you throughout this tough situation.
What Causes Nerve Damage?
After representing our nerve damage injury clients for several decades, we have seen a variety of common accidents that have led to nerve damage and nerve pain.
Below are the different types of causes of nerve damage:
Throughout these different types of accidents, you could sustain several different types of injuries. Different types of injuries that are most likely to cause nerve damage include:
- Whiplash: Car accidents may cause whiplash, which is the sudden movement of the head that injures your neck and head. The jerking motion can strain the nerves of your head and neck, causing long-term pain;
- Cuts: Deep lacerations can slice your nerves and cause damage. You may encounter this scenario during an auto accident or a workplace accident;
- Blunt Trauma: A sudden impact can place excessive pressure on the nerves. This form of trauma can also occur during car accidents or workplace disasters;
- Surgical Accidents: A surgical error can happen between a patient and doctor where nerves are permanently damaged.
Overall, whiplash is the most common injury that impacts the nerves. Moreover, whiplash is a common occurrence after a car accident. You may contend with whiplash in a head-on collision that forces your head back and forth.
What Are Symptoms of Nerve Damage?
Oftentimes, many people are not aware that they have suffered some type of nerve damage following an accident. Nerve damage and nerve pain can take form in several different ways. Sometimes, many don’t even know that they have suffered nerve damage until months after an accident. Below are some examples of symptoms that could be potential indications of nerve damage:
- Sensory damage;
- Loss of sensation in different parts of the body;
- Having difficulty focusing;
- Pain at the joints;
- Bladder dysfunction.
How is Nerve Damage Treated?
Because of the complexity of nerves, many doctors don’t have the exact formula on how it can be best treated. There are different treatments that could be implemented to try to prevent nerve pain, but in many cases, the victim will never be able to go back as to how they were before the accident. Below are some examples of treatments for nerve damage:
- Physical therapy.
The above treatments could be very costly. Our nerve damage attorneys believe that no victim of an accident should have to pay for all these medical costs. If you are hurt in an accident, contact our experienced personal injury attorneys today to receive monetary compensation for your nerve damage treatments. We will work to make sure that you receive financial compensation that covers all your past and future medical treatments to treat the nerve damage.
Spinal Nerve Damage
Spinal cord injuries could lead to severe nerve damage and nerve trauma within the spinal area after a severe accident. Spinal nerve damage is very severe and could affect the entire body. Nerve damage in the spine is also one of the most painful types of nerve damage.
Arm Nerve Damage
One of the biggest indicators for nerve damage in the arm is numbness or tingling at the hands and fingers. Pain experienced in the wrist area is also another symptom that many feel after suffering from nerve damage in the arm. This is one of the most annoying types of nerve damage since victims are not able to perform everyday tasks such as holding a pen or driving because of their nerve pain.
Leg Nerve Damage
Nerve damage at the legs could travel from toes to the hips. None of this could be felt at the ankles, feet, and the toes. Tingling and pain is likely to be felt. This causes balance issues and the victim is likely to end up getting involved in another accident such as falling when standing up. Many doctors advise physical therapy after enduring nerve damage.
What Should I Do If I Suffered a Nerve Injury?
- Seek medical help immediately: we advise our clients to document the injury as much as possible. The best way to document a nerve injury is through a doctor. A doctor can diagnose nerve cases and provide written documentation, along with their professional opinion as to how the nerve injury was caused and the future symptoms of nerve injury.
- Keep a Record of Medical Bills: We advise all our clients to keep a record of the different medical bills in order to be able to seek reimbursement for such costs.
- Record Income Losses: Document the time lost as a result of the injury. If you cannot work, for example, make a note of any lost wages or income from the injuries. You may receive wage compensation.
- Speak to a Nerve Injury Lawyer: This is one of the most important steps. It is very important to speak to an experienced nerve injury attorney that is well-versed in California and Nevada laws to be able to file a lawsuit claim against the other party.
