Nerve Damage Compensation
Introduction to Nerve damage Injury Claims
Nerve damage injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have sustained damage to your nervous system in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a nerve damage injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that your injured nerve damage has had on your quality of life and any financial consequences of being incapacitated by damaged nerves.
Eligibility to Make Nerve Damage Injury Claims for Compensation
Nerve damage injury claims have to show that an injury has been sustained which has damaged one or more nerves and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a nerve damage injury can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the injury to your nerve(s) through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.
Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your nerve damage injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from your injured nerve(s), collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before your have recovered from your nerve damage injury.
Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making nerve damage injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a nerve damage injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your nerve damage injury claim and advise you if you have a claim for nerve damage injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.
How Much is my Claim for a Nerve Damage Injury Worth?
How much compensation for a nerve damage injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your own personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your nerve damage injury claim by considering the severity of your injury in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident which was responsible for the injury to your nerve(s).
As mentioned above, the effect that the damaged nerve(s) has on your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for nerve damage injury compensation along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a physical injury. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your injured nerve(s) – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future due to the nature of your nerve damage accident – will also be integrated into your nerve damage injury claim.
You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your damaged nerve(s) when making a claim for nerve damage injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following your accident and nerve damage injury, to additional transport costs if you are unable to drive while recovering from damaged nerves. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for nerve damage injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.
“No Win, No Fee” Nerve Damage Injury Claims for Compensation
Provided that your solicitor believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for nerve damage injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your nerve damage injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for nerve damage injury compensation, you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, when your nerve damage injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.
However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” nerve damage injury claims on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for nerve damage injury compensation be unsuccessful and you become liable for the defendant´s legal fees. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “No Win, No Fee” nerve damage injury claim prior to accepting your claim.
