Nerve injuries can arise in many different ways, and can cause serious pain and disability. Our highly acclaimed medical negligence solicitors have won compensation for clients who have suffered nerve damage arising from medical negligence.
You can suffer a nerve injury in a number of ways, and it is important that you choose a solicitor with experience and understanding of all types of nerve injury claim.
Mistakes in surgery
Some nerve injuries occur when surgeons fail to identify a nerve during surgery. We have successfully helped clients bring nerve injury claims for:
• Hip replacement surgery where nerves have been severed
• Knee replacement surgery where nerves have been severed
• Hernia surgery damaging the inguinal and genito-femoral nerve
• Damage to the accessory nerve from surgery to remove a tumour
• Damage to the obturator nerve from tension-free vaginal tape surgery.
Damage from injections or syringes
Other nerve injuries occur from needles, whether to give injections, take blood or provide pain relief. Recent successful claims for compensation include those for:
• Damage to the spinal cord from a caudal epidural and facet joint injection
• Damage to the median nerve when taking blood from the arm
• Damage to the radial nerve when taking blood from the arm.
Our approach to nerve injury claims
We understand that for many of our clients who develop disability from nerve injuries, compensation may be very important for their quality of life. Compensation can enable them to have:
• Private medical treatment, avoiding delays and in greater comfort than in NHS hospitals
• Nursing care at home
• Help with housework
• Money to make good any loss of earnings.
