Many medical negligence claims which involve neurological injury to the nerves are due to a failure to diagnose and treat correctly, or at all, resulting in catastrophic consequences.
Neurologists are trained to investigate, diagnose and treat a wide range of disorders including:
Traumatic brain injuries
Headaches and migraines, facial pain and weakness
Vertigo/balance disorders, dizziness and blackouts
Tingling, pins and needles and numbness
Epilepsy and seizures
Memory problems, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
Stroke and mini-stroke/TIA
Parkinson’s disease, tremors and disorders affecting movement
Claims can arise due to a failure to diagnose and treat these conditions, which can result in severe disability, brain damage and death.
Some nerve injuries occur when surgeons fail to identify a nerve during surgery for hip or knee replacements, hernia surgery, abdominal surgery, vaginal surgery and so on.
Other nerve injuries occur from needles, whether to give injections, take blood or provide pain relief/epidural/facet joint injections.
Some nerve injuries are short-lived and mild; however, other nerve injuries can be debilitating and long-term, causing difficulty with day-to-day living as well as psychological symptoms in severe cases.
