If you,re in pain after an accident, you need help right away. Read on! The information our attorneys provide is essential to your personal injury claim and your recovery.
An injury from an accident in one location of your body can actually cause a variety of symptoms in other areas, including your extremities. What might feel like a tingling sensation in your hands a day after the accident can develop into numbness or a persistent burning sensation that makes even the smallest movements a difficult task. Dismissing those symptoms as unrelated to your motor vehicle accident or other traumatic event can have a large impact on your personal injury claim and your ability to obtain proper compensation for the true extent of your injuries. Our New Jersey nerve damage injury lawyers have nearly 20 years of experience helping accident victims find top medical doctors to develop effective treatment plans for them.
Doctors can actually see nerve damage in the body by using high-contrast images, including MRIs. Nerve damage shown in dark blue illustrates the tearing of nerve clusters as the result of an accident.
Neuropathy is damage to the nerves in the peripheral nervous system, which are the nerves extending outside the brain and spinal cord. These nerves run through all parts of body, including vital organs and muscle tissue. Neuropathy may affect a group of nerves or only a single nerve in your body depending on the severity of your injury.
Nerve damage usually arises as a symptom of a different injury sustained in an accident. Treating the original injury may help alleviate the painful effects of nerve damage, depending on how long it takes doctors to develop a workable treatment plan.
Recovering from the painful symptoms of nerve damage can take time. Regeneration of torn nerves is slow, and the treatment doctors use to help you may take several weeks to months before you begin to feel relief.
Pain is an invisible symptom. Following your accident, the insurance company may try to convince you that you,re not actually hurt, that you deserve no compensation for your injuries. The lawyers at Console & Associates P.C. have been helping accident victims with neuropathy just like you for nearly 20 years. We believe you have a right to maximum compensation for your damages, and won’t rest until we,ve obtained the largest settlement possible on your behalf.
