Accidental nerve damage

“Lance Mason is a leading specialist in dealing with accidental nerve damage claims. Accidental nerve damage can have a drastic impact on your quality of life; our experts are here to seek the compensation you need to ease the burden of your injury.

What is accidental nerve damage?

During an operation, nerves can be severed accidentally. The severing or damage of a nerve can affect movement or sensation in a patient. Therefore, many sufferers of accidental nerve damage choose to pursue compensation if it is believed that the injury was caused by a negligent medical professional.

There are many different ways a medical professional can accidentally cause damage to a patient’s nerves:

  • Damage to nerves during surgical procedures
  • The incorrect administering of injections near nerves
  • Accidentally damaging nerves while taking blood samples
  • The incorrect application of a tourniquet
  • The incorrect administering of anaesthesia

Accidental nerve damage is a very serious matter. Our nerves are responsible transmitting the currents that facilitate thoughts, sensations and movement. Nerves even control some functions that occur involuntarily. Damage to these nerves can impact your ability to think and move normally and can potentially change your life for the worse.

How does the claim process work?

Once you speak to our experts, we will collect evidence on your behalf and arrange a medical appointment for you. If your medical report indicates that your nerve injury is the result of medical negligence, we will seek compensation on your behalf from the defendent's insurers.

They have the opportunity to either accept or deny liability. If they accept liability, we will negotiate a settlement that covers all your losses. If they deny liability, we will issue court proceedings. Most claims don't make it all the way to court as many settle even if liability was denied in the first instance. However, if you do end up needing to go to court, we will make sure you know what to expect.
