Dealing with any type of injury can be distressing. But when nerve injury is involved, the consequences can be particularly damaging and painful.
BeenLetDown has a team of specialist medical negligence Solicitors that can help with all types of nerve injury compensation claims. Having dealt with many cases in the past, our team are knowledgeable, skilful and receptive to our clients’ needs.
Types of claims
If you think you have suffered nerve injury as a result of surgery that has gone wrong, or insufficient or incorrect care and attention, we can pursue your claim. We will gather evidence and present it to the appropriate NHS Trust, Doctor or specialist.
The first step is to get in touch with us, let us take the details of your claim and assess whether your claim is likely to have merit.
How might injury occur?
Nerve injury can result due to many things, particularly mistakes made during surgery or when administering injections. It may also been that when you had surgery, it was not properly explained to you that a nerve related injury could occur.
If Surgeons do not take notice of nerves within the body during surgery then various surgical errors can occur with:
- Hip or knee replacements
- Hernia surgery
- Removal of tumours or growths
- Hand Surgery
- Facial Surgery
- Cosmetic Procedures/ Surgery
- General Surgery
If injections are not given accurately and correctly when taking blood or giving relief from pain, problems from needles can occur, such as:
- Spinal cord damage
- Damage to nerves in the arms or legs
- Damage to the central nervous system
How can compensation help?
If you are unfortunate enough to have incurred nerve injury due to any of the examples given above or indeed any other medical, surgical or nursing error, then we can help you to claim the compensation that is due to you.
You may have lost time off work, so earnings have been reduced. Family life may have been disrupted, or relationships negatively impacted upon. You may have been unable to look after children. Household chores and cooking may have been impossible. This will be taken into account.
We will also look at how long you have been incapacitated for, how long the injury may remain, what your circumstances are like now compared to before the injury and what the outlook is for your future.
