What sort of nerve damage can I claim for?
You have nerves running throughout your body, sending and receiving signals to the brain. They enable you to have a sense of touch, as well as to feel pain when something is damaging your body. Most importantly, the central nervous system runs from your brain all the way down your spine, meaning that serious nerve damage can leave you paralysed. Less serious results of nerve damage can include:
- Tingling and numbness in the hands and feet
- Balance problems
- Muscle weakness
- Shooting pains
Unfortunately, most nerve damage is permanent, meaning that in addition to your pain and suffering, you may need to claim compensation to pay for other losses that your nerve damage injury will cause over the course of your life.
