If you have suffered nerve damage as a result of mistakes during a procedure or surgery, then you might have a claim for compensation.
Many different symptoms can result after nerve damage including numbness, prickling, and tingling, weakened muscles, sharp pains, sudden pains, freezing or burning sensations, extreme sensitivity, lack of coordination, falling and in severe cases, paralysis.
Nerve damage is a recognised risk when undergoing surgery of any kind. However, a patient must be warned of the risk of nerve damage during the consent process prior to surgery.
If appropriate care is not taken by a surgeon, doctor or nurse while undergoing a hospital procedure or treatment then damage or severance of nerves can occur.
If you have suffered nerve damage, resulting in physical impairment or disability after a surgical error then please call our Patient Claims Team on 0333 987 4011 or email email@example.com to speak to one of our experts today.
