Nerve injury in any form can have serious consequences, such as loss of feeling, long-lasting pain, and full or partial loss of function. If you or someone you love has suffered a nerve injury because of the negligent actions of a medical provider, surgeon, or another party, you have the right to pursue compensation under Florida law.
Types of Nerve Complications and Injuries in Florida
There are three essential types of nerves in the human body – autonomic, sensory, and motor nerves. It’s not uncommon for nerves to get scraped or pinched, resulting in irreversible pain. Serious nerve injuries involve nerves that are severed or cut. This may lead to potentially permanent damage. The three types of nerve damage or neuropathy include:
- Mononeuropathy: Single nerve is damaged
- Neuritis: Nerves get compressed because of inflammation
- Polyneuropathy: Multiple nerves may be damaged in single or multiple areas of the body
Several factors determine the consequences of nerve injury, including the type and location of the nerves involved.
