Even neurological experts don’t fully understand the human nervous system. They can’t always repair damaged nerves or even stop the pain. Meanwhile, victims of nerve damage must cope with the loss of bodily functions and try to ignore persistent nerve signals they can’t turn off.
The law firm of Monsees & Mayer, P.C., represents accident victims left with nerve damage and related injuries resulting from the negligence of others. We are committed to securing compensation that covers the lifelong aftermath of sensory impairment, motor impairment or paralysis. Our Kansas City lawyers offer a free consultation to discuss your potential claims.
Compensation For Nerve Damage And Paralysis
We have recovered compensation for serious injuries in a range of cases, including nerve damage from falling accidents, machinery accidents, electrical shock, motor vehicle collisions, as well as stroke or brain damage stemming from medical negligence.
The body has some capacity to regenerate severed or damaged nerves, but most people will not recover 100 percent of the function and feeling they had before the accident. When the body does “rewire” itself, the side effects may range from numbness, tingling or tremors to phantom sensations or random pain. These symptoms can be frustrating and debilitating.
We handle the full spectrum of nerve damage cases, including:
- Quadriplegia and paraplegia ( spinal cord trauma)
- Partial paralysis
- Loss of function
- Loss of strength/muscle atrophy
- Loss of sensation
- Chronic severe pain
- Complex regional pain syndrome/reflex sympathetic dystrophy
- Phantom pains and “mixed signals” from compromised nerves
Compensation is tied to the degree of paralysis or the severity of symptoms. We pursue compensation for lost earning capacity if the person cannot work or must retrain for a new occupation. Some people may benefit from surgical intervention to repair or block nerves. Many clients require nursing care, assisted living services, or wheelchairs, lifts and other medical equipment and home modifications. A claim for damages will also cover pain and suffering, such as burning/searing pains that do not respond to most medications.
