We have detailed below some of the more commonly seen scenarios where nerve damage has occurred and the associated compensation amounts. In the first instance, it is advisable to speak to a personal injury solicitor to gain more insight into how much compensation for nerve damage you might expect to receive.
Depending on the part of the body affected and the severity of the incident that caused the injury, the effects of damage to the nerves can be permanent or temporary.
