About Accidental Nerve Damage

Nerve damage is among the most common problems that arise from surgical errors. The very nature of surgery means that a surgeon will often be working very close to nerve endings and any miscalculation or accident can cause damage that can have very serious consequences. If this has happened to you and medical error was to blame, you may be able to make a claim to compensate for the pain and suffering caused.

Damage to nerves can result in:

  • Loss of sensation
  • Severe pain
  • Paralysis

Common Causes

Damage of this type can occur for all manner of reasons. Among the more common include:

  • The accidental injection of certain drugs into or near the nerve, such as steroids, antibiotics, antipsychotics and analgesics
  • Bleeding from a punctured artery following the taking of a blood sample, leading to compression of the nerve
  • Failure to notice ischaemia (reduced blood supply), often following a fracture
  • Tourniquet paralysis caused by applying a tourniquet wrongly or leaving it on too long during certain types of orthopaedic surgery
  • Pressure on nerves from poor positioning on the operating table when a patient is unconscious
  • Traction during manipulation of the back or neck
  • Direct damage to a nerve during surgery from cutting, burning, stretching or compressing
