Nerve Injury

The nervous system plays a key role in the ways our bodies function. Autonomic nerves control basic involuntary functions, such as breathing and heartbeat. Motor nerves govern movement by regulating communication between the brain and the muscles. Sensory nerves relay information about muscles and skin. The information they provide helps us detect pain and feel other sensations. Because the jobs that nerves do are so varied, injuries that damage nerves can greatly affect our everyday lives. If you’ve been hurt and sustained nerve damage, contact a qualified personal injury attorney for advice.

The Palm Beach personal injury attorneys at our firm know that there are many causes of nerve damage. They range from exposure to toxic substances, to illness and nutritional issues. But we also know that automobile accidents are a leading cause of nerve injuries. Neck injuries, crushing or compression of body parts, and other traumatic damage that occurs during crashes can cause serious injury to the nervous system. In some cases, damage may not be apparent immediately after an accident. Or it may be difficult to diagnose nerve injuries because the pain you experience could be challenging to pinpoint. When a nerve is injured, the pain, numbness, weakness, or other sensation you feel could show up elsewhere in your body.
