Understanding Auto Accidents Find Out If You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Nerve Damage Results from Car Crashes

Rear-end crashes, side swipe accidents, and head-on collisions are all types of Georgia auto accidents that can result in serious injuries. One type of injury that you shouldn't ignore after a Stone Mountain accident is nerve damage.

Just because you don't realize that you have nerve damage, doesn't mean it's not there. Sometimes nerve damage may not show up immediately. This is why it is extremely important to get checked out by a doctor after a motor vehicle accident.

Since nerves carry messages back and forth from the brain to parts of your body, nerve damage can affect your central nervous system and many crucial functions of the brain. When a car crash causes nerve damage, it can affect your fingers, toes, chest, brain, and other parts of the body.

Types of nerve damage that can occur after a car accident range from minimal to severe and include damage to spinal nerves, sensory nerves, and digital nerves. When damage to the nerves in the brain or spinal cord occurs, permanent and disabling injuries are often a result.

Common Symptoms of Nerve Damage

After a car crash you may develop noticeable symptoms of nerve damage that you should have your doctor examine immediately, including:

  • Tingling sensation in your extremities
  • Limbs falling asleep when compressed
  • Abnormal sensitivity and pain
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Loss of strength and muscle atrophy
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Problems holding or releasing urine and bowels
  • Paralysis

A doctor should run tests to find out the extent of your nerve damage and provide you with treatment options. If your nerve damage is severe, as in the case of paralysis, there may not be treatments available to help you recover.

However, for many victims of car crashes that suffer from nerve damage, doctors are able to provide them with pain medication so that they can live a more comfortable life. In many cases surgery and physical therapy can help correct the damage that has been done.

If you have sustained nerve damage following a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent driver and their insurance company.
