What Can Cause a Nerve Injury?

Nerves are bundles of fibers that transmit information between the brain and the rest of the body. Essentially, nerves are the body's communication system, responsible for both voluntary actions, like moving a hand, and involuntary actions, such as heartbeats. There are three primary types of nerves in the human body: autonomic, motor, and sensory nerves. Injury to any of these can result in a range of symptoms and impairments. For example, a nerve that gets compressed, lacerated, or overstretched can become damaged.

There are many possible causes of nerve injury; however, the following types of accidents are among the most common causes:

What Are the Symptoms of a Nerve Injury?

The symptoms of nerve injuries vary widely, depending on the location and severity of the injury. However, as Charlotte nerve injury lawyers who have handled countless cases, in our experience, the most common symptoms include:

  • Pain or numbness,
  • Muscle weakness,
  • Tingling or burning sensations,
  • Loss of coordination, and
  • Loss of motor function.

Often, the pain, discomfort, or loss of motion is located in the area where the injury occurred; however, that is not always the case. Sometimes, a nerve injury in one area of the body can cause pain or affect the movement in a seemingly unrelated part of the body. And in the worst cases, nerve injuries can lead to paralysis, chronic pain, or the loss of sensation in certain areas of the body.

What Damages Are Available in a Personal Injury Case Involving Nerve Damage?

If you or someone you know has suffered a nerve injury due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another party, you may have the right to compensation. Damages in nerve injury cases can cover the following:

  • Medical bills,
  • Future medical expenses,
  • Rehabilitation costs,
  • Lost wages or loss of earning potential,
  • Pain and suffering, and
  • Emotional distress.

Navigating the legal landscape after experiencing a nerve injury can be daunting. However, with the help of the personal injury lawyers at the Olsinski Law Firm, PLLC, you can ensure that your rights are protected and that you secure the best possible outcome for your case.
