Nerve injury can occur after surgery for instance if a doctor fails to identify a nerve before or during the surgery. Alternatively, nerve injuries may occur following an injection such as an epidural or when extracting blood, for instance for a blood test.
If it can be proven that you received negligent care, you can help you claim compensation for your nerve injury.
