Why Claim Compensation for Nerve Damage?
While no amount of money can reverse what’s happened, it’s important that you’re able to get back in the same position you were in before the negligence occurred, at least as much as possible.
A nerve injury can:
- Affect your earning capacity
- Stop you doing activities you enjoy doing
- Prevent you performing essential day-to-day tasks, such as cooking, cleaning and personal grooming
- Cause great emotional distress
But with the right compensation settlement, you can deal with each of these problems directly, without facing any significant financial pressures. An appropriate amount of compensation can cover any loss of earnings you’ve experienced and potential future losses, as well as enable you to access the care and support you need at home, in hospital and/or with specialist therapists.
Claiming medical negligence compensation may also lead to important changes in how care is provided to patients in the future by the NHS. Indeed, your case may highlight common errors and lead to procedural changes that reduce the chances of other people suffering from negligence in the same way.
Interim Payments of Compensation
If we take on your case, our Medical Negligence Solicitors will contact the NHS Trust responsible for your nerve damage asking them to accept responsibility. If they agree that they’re liable, and don’t dispute the matter, we can push for you to receive Interim Payments to meet any urgent needs you may have; before the case has concluded.
This means you’ll be able to access treatment and deal with any pressing financial burdens straight away, rather than wait for legal proceedings to be concluded in full. The amount you receive in interim payments will be taken out of the final sum you receive.
