If you have been in a catastrophic accident in Louisiana, you may have sustained a variety of different injuries. Lacerations, bruises, and even broken bones may be painful, but they will usually heal fully over time. Nerve damage, on the other hand, can have a long-lasting or even permanent effect on your health.
Nerves comprise the network of the human body’s “electrical wires”. In other words, nerves transport messages between the brain and the rest of your body. Like any network, if there are blockages, they can affect not only the location of the obstruction, but also your entire body.
The medical term for nerve damage is peripheral neuropathy, which is when signals traveling to and from the brain are disrupted. It can occur from many types of incidents, including:
There are 3 basic ways to damage your nerves:
Envision your nerves as a series of rubber tubes. Application of pressure to a particular tube will squeeze it shut to create a blockage. Stretching of a tube affects the brain’s signals. In each case, eliminating the source of the problem (like a tumor or a slipped disc, for instance) may return proper function to the nerve.
However, severing the tube would completely disrupt the signal path. This is the type of damage which usually results in the most serious harm to your body.
You probably have already experienced nerve injuries in your life. If your arm or leg has ever “fallen asleep,” it was because pressure on your nerves prevents the brain’s signals from reaching your extremities. When you eliminated the pressure, the “feeling” returned to your limbs.
Unfortunately, more severe damage may have detrimental consequences. The most severe nerve damage results in paralysis. Paralysis is loss of function of a part of your body altogether due to disconnect from the rest of the body’s nerves. This usually occurs when the nerves of the brain and/or spinal cord are damaged.
If you suffer nerve injuries as a result of an accident, you should contact a Louisiana personal injury lawyer. A personal attorney who has experience representing accident victims suffering from extensive nerve injuries can help you file a lawsuit. A lawsuit aims to recover compensation for your medical costs, pain and suffering, and any future earnings which might be lost due to your condition.
