Nerve Damage Claims
We all know that every operation carries risks, even in the hands of the very best surgeon. However, sometimes injuries can occur during surgery which, by their very nature, indicate that sufficient care was not taken. The effect of nerve damage in particular can be devastating, with symptoms including severe and excruciating pain, pins and needles, numbness and an electric shock-type sensation.
Our team of medical negligence specialists at Girlings Personal Injury Claims have dealt with several cases where negligent nerve damage has occurred during what should have been a routine operation. It usually occurs because the surgeon has failed to properly identify and avoid the nerve during surgery.
We have dealt with several claims including:
- Accessory nerve damage
- Nerve damage during hip or knee replacement surgery
- Damage to the inguinal nerve during hernia repair surgery
