Nerve Damage Associated With Auto Accidents

The nervous system is a complex system of nerves that connect the brain, spinal cord, and sensory organs to other bodily organs. The nervous system controls both voluntary and involuntary movements as well as the ability for the body to communicate among its parts. While some auto accidents result in minor injuries, other auto accidents can result in serious bodily injury including nerve damage. If you or your loved one has been involved in a motor vehicle accident and sustained bodily injury, contact Colombo Law today for information on your right to compensation.

Symptoms of Nerve Damage

Some forms of nerve damage can be detected immediately after an accident. However, that is not the case for other damage. Some common symptoms of nerve damage may include:

  • Numbness
  • Weakness or pain in muscles
  • Uncontrolled movements such as twitching
  • Increased sensitivity in a specific area
  • Constipation
  • Pain in a localized area

If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, it is important to seek medical attention immediately after an accident. Obtaining prompt medical treatment is the best way to ensure that any injuries stemming from an auto accident is identified and treated. A delay in medical treatment could have a devastating effect and lead to paralysis.

Extensive Medical Treatment

When nerve damage is the result of an automobile accident, medical treatment is required. The medical treatment is often extensive, especially in those instances in which there is partial or full paralysis of arms, legs, fingers, and toes. This requires time away from work, family, and other obligations. For many individuals, this medical treatment causes a great strain on the family due to reduced income and increased pain.
