Nerve damage can result from many common medical operations, such as hip, knee and back surgery, and the impact can be devastating.
Nerve injuries can cause anything from tingling sensations to muscle weakness and paralysis. And these can have a dramatic impact on quality of life.
So while compensation can’t ever take away the trauma, it can go some way towards making your life easier, and achieving a sense of justice.

When you contact us for a free consultation, we’ll run you through key information such as the NHS Complaints procedure, as you may have to submit a complaint before taking legal action.
If this applies in your case, we can advise you on the procedure and review the outcome of a complaint. After taking on your case, we’ll work with an independent medical specialist to gauge the full extent of your injuries, as this will help us calculate how much compensation you should be awarded.
If your claim is specific to Cerebral and Erb's Palsy, claims are more complex as they rely on a number of independent experts to carry out a thorough investigation. But we'll take care of the difficult tasks, from arranging appointments with independent medical experts to supporting you if your case goes all the way to trial.
Strict time limits apply for making a medical negligence claim, so you shouldn’t delay in seeking specialist legal advice.
You must either claim within three years of when the incident happened or three years from when you became aware of it (the date of knowledge).
If the date of knowledge can’t be identified, assume that the three-year period runs from the date of the incident.
The time limitation period may in certain cases extend to:

If you’re claiming following the death of another person, you have 3 years from the date of their death in which to claim.

All of the above raises questions as to the adequacy of the treatment you may have received.
