The types of nerve damage
There two primary categories of nerve damage, just as there are many different types of conditions, all of varying severity. These are:
1. Bruising, tearing, or stretching of a nerve or the surrounding tissue
These are more commonly caused by traumatic accidents than by repetitive stress. They are also the most severe type of nerve damage. These nerve injuries can result in the complete loss of function or movement (paralysis) or other serious limitations to mobility and strength. These types of injuries can even be permanent.
2. Pressure on nerves that block the transmission of signals to and from the brain
This condition is often caused by the loss of blood supply to a part of the body, from either repetitive stress or a sudden traumatic event. With these types of injuries, generally, there is no permanent damage. However, recovery can take from several months to several years and sometimes medical treatment, such as surgery or physical rehabilitation, is required.
Three of the most common causes of this type of nerve damage are:
- Illnesses such as diabetes, cancer or an autoimmune disease.
- Trauma – slips, falls and bumps.
- Repetitive use (as in carpal tunnel syndrome).
- Medical negligence, that leaves your nervous system irreparably damaged.
Nerve damage workers compensation settlement
Nerve damage can happen to anyone, at any time, due to either accidents or resulting from repetitive stress. If this happens to you at your workplace, then you will always be covered by workers’ compensation, which means that you could be eligible for compensation.
Almost all types of work environments can lead to people to suffer from nerve damage and other nerve-related injuries. While some nerve injury cases stem from sudden traumatic injuries such as falling over, others result from repetitive stress.
Regardless of the cause, these injuries will seriously, negatively affect your everyday life. Nerve injuries can be painful and debilitating and they’re disruptive to the extent that you’ll be out of the workforce for a while. You may even suffer from permanent disabilities.
