If you have experienced any form of nerve damage due to someone else’s negligent behaviour, we highly recommend that you contact Solicitors On Your Side now.

Different Types of Nerve Damage

There is a range of different ways during which a procedure can be negligent and cause damage to your nerves, these include:

  • Injections and improper needle use
  • Stretch and traction
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Exposure to harmful toxins
  • Extreme compression and pressure, when the nerve is squeezed and compressed.
  • Surgical errors
  • Spinal cord injuries.
  • Medication or treatment administered without warning of the risk of damage

Nerve damage during dental procedures

Nerve damage during dental procedures can happen frequently due to the nature of the treatments that are provided. The most common nerve damage during dental treatment is nerve damage after an injection. Usually, this occurs during a dental procedure that requires the use of an anaesthetic, which delivers numbing to the part that would need it during the treatment.

If the injection is carried out negligently and incorrectly, nerve damage is likely to occur in consequence. The nerve damage can be minor or can have long-term or permanent complications.

There’s a range of symptoms that you may experience if you are suffering from dental nerve damage after your procedure or treatment. Popular symptoms include:

  • Loss of taste
  • Pain or burning in the area
  • Difficulty in eating or speaking in consequence of the symptoms.
  • Lack of sensation after the anaesthetic has worn off, including lack of feeling in tongue, mouth or gums.

If you experienced any form of nerve damage and it had impacted your daily life, due to negligent care during your dental procedure, we highly recommend that you contact Solicitors On Your Side. Our experienced solicitors can gather the correct evidence and medical records to help back up your claim and ensure that you get the highest possible compensation.
