No one wants to live a life that is full of pain, however unfortunately for some people it is unavoidable. Nerve damage is something that many people have to deal with on a daily basis and it can affect quality of life. One of the main issues with nerve damage is that often it is a long-term problem because the point of the pain cannot be fixed. Nerve damage can also affect our bodies in many other ways too, including strange sensations, loss of feeling in certain areas and even body parts becoming more sensitive. Nerve damage doesn’t usually just occur naturally, it can be as a result of an accident or trauma. If an accident you have been involved in was caused by someone else and it has resulted in nerve damage to your body then you could be entitled to compensation.
The Symptoms of Nerve Damage
Nerve damage affects everyone differently, not everyone has the same symptoms. Bodies are complicated things and so can be affected in different ways when it comes to injuries, especially nerve damage. Common symptoms of nerve damage are,
– Limbs feeling heavy and unable to move / lift them up.
– Unable to grip properly or hold items for any length of time
– Pins and needles or numbness in your hands or feet
– Limbs feeling cold and uncomfortable
The Causes of Nerve Damage
There are many ways in which the nerves in your body can be damaged. Whether this is due to toxic drugs or an accident which has damaged your body, the outcome is the same. However if you have been involved in an accident which has resulted in nerve damage and someone else was at fault then you could be entitled to compensation.
Nerve damage could also be as a result of medical negligence and whilst this can be complicated you could be entitled to compensation for this too.
