Nerve Damage Injury Claims

Shattered nerves

It can take a long time for damaged nerves to recover; sometimes they never do. When the damage results in a slight loss of sensitivity, or occasional pins and needles it can be accommodated but when it causes varying degrees of paralysis, muscle wastage or a variety of other extremely disagreeable symptoms it is much harder to live with. In fact it can change lives. If the cause of the injury that led to the nerve damage wasn’t the fault of the victim, that victim’s physical suffering can take on psychological aspect that almost certainly will not play a positive role in the process of recovery.

The balm

Compensation can prove to be a balm for both the victim’s physical and psychological injuries, making them feel that there is ‘justice’ in what can seem at times a very random world. The amount awarded should fully reflect the full extent of the victims pain and suffering and their economic loss as a result of the nerve damage they have suffered.

Help at hand

How do you ensure that the compensation does reflect all that needs to be taken in consideration or even that a claim is made in the first place? Answer: You hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who specialises in compensation claims for nerve damage. That is kind of common sense, but for the person suffering nerve damage, perhaps after a serious accident, perhaps due to medical negligence or even a sporting accident and not at their most mentally alert due to the effect of pain killers, thoughts about whether they can make a claim and what has to be done to do so, are usually not uppermost in their mind.

Clever old lawyers

Over to the clever old lawyer; who, whilst their client concentrates on recovering, coping with medical treatment and adjusting to a life that might be changed out of all recognition, will be able to assess the likelihood of any claim succeeding, and then if they judge it viable, proceeding to gather all the information necessary to support it. This will usually include details about the circumstances of their client’s accident including statements from any witnesses to the accident, a comprehensive medical report from a specialist consultant detailing the extent of the nerve damage and offering a prognosis and a comprehensive report on the economic and social consequences of the injury on the client related to that prognosis.

Happily ever after?

Perhaps not, depending on the seriousness of the nerve damage, but without the compensation to which a person can be entitled if they were injured due to another’s negligence or carelessness, the future can be a lot grimmer and those feelings of being treated unfairly might well eat deeper and deeper into the victims psyche. Why would anyone do that to themselves? Even just enquiring of a solicitor if a compensation claim can be made can be the equal of any other first step on the road to recovery.

I was diagnosed with Legionnaires disease. Can I make an injury claim?

If you were recently diagnosed with Legionellosis or Legionnaires disease as it’s otherwise known, you may have had to take time off work due to experiencing a high fever, chills, muscle pains or feeling run down with a persistent cough or a headache.

All of these symptoms can make you feel run down and in the process, you may be left feeling depressed if you’re struggling financially due to taking time off work. Legionnaires disease is usually contracted by breathing in water droplets which contain the legionella bacterium.

The bacteria can survive in a natural environment along with contaminated water sources. At temperatures of 20 and 45 degrees C the bacteria can thrive, contaminating cooling systems, swimming pools, hot water systems, air conditioning units and any place where the temperature is right. They are more likely to survive if they have a viable food source like algae, sludge or rust.

On average it can take two weeks or so until a person shows any of these symptoms. Legionnaire disease symptoms can be severe and similar to pneumonia which can therefore be potentially fatal. To avoid this from happening, it’s the responsibility of the people who manage the premises you’re staying in to ensure that any water systems are subjected to strict legislation. This is to enable for the management and maintenance of the water system, so that it is safe from contamination and doesn’t harm any people.

If you or a friend or relative have contracted Legionnaires disease or have any of the symptoms associated with the legionella bacterium, you could be eligible to claim injury compensation for any damages to your health along with any knock-on effects caused by loss of wages.

It can shatter your confidence and make you feel scared to get into a car, but beyond the psychological effects it can also affect you in other ways. For example, if you’ve sustained a personal injury you may need to take time off and this can result in loss of wages.

Traffic accidents are on the rise because of the increasing number of vehicles on the road and accidents can happen due to neglecting to pay attention to the road or dangerous driving. Regardless of who was to blame for the accident, as an innocent passenger however, the accident is never your fault. No matter how minor, it’s possible to make a claim for compensation in a passenger personal injury claim.

The various forces that fingers are exposed to can lead to different types of injuries, from small fractures that should heal of their own accord to more serious breaks that require surgery and splints to correct. Furthermore, in some cases, physiotherapy will needed in order to restore strength and movement, making the whole process of recovery more arduous. Such injuries can be particularly frustrating when they have been caused by someone else’s inattentiveness and where this is the case, individuals may be entitled to make broken finger personal injury compensation claims.
