How does nerve damage occur?

Nerves are extremely delicate and can be easily damaged during surgery. In most cases, medical staff will actively try to reduce the risk of nerve damage by ensuring that they are aware of nearby nerves before operating, and usually surgery is carried out without complications. However, accidents can happen – particularly if adequate care has not been taken.

Whilst nerve damage can occur during any major surgery, it is particularly common when undergoing certain operations, for example; hip, knee, back and hernia surgery. Nerve damage can also occur if certain medical conditions go undiagnosed, such as diabetes. If you have recently undergone surgery and experienced any of the following symptoms, your nerves may have been negligently damaged in the process: 

  • Tingling or shooting pains around the area
  • Distinctly altered sensations
  • Paralysis and immobility
  • Muscle weakness

Am I entitled to make a clinical negligence claim if I have nerve damage after surgery?

If you have suffered nerve damage following surgery, it could be due to somebody else’s negligence. If this is the case, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team of specialist solicitors will assess your claim thoroughly and discuss the severity of your symptoms and the circumstances of how they occurred with you in full. Once we have built a clear picture of how the effects of nerve damage may affect your current day to day life and your future we will be able to advise on how much compensation you may expect to receive.
