Did you know that an electric shock could cause nerve damage which can cause chronic pain, numbness or tingling in the corresponding body parts? A high voltage electric shock can damage nerves, leading to long-term complications, and if this has happened to you then Accident Advice Helpline wants to help you claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. Nerve damage can be temporary or permanent and however you’ve been injured, you deserve to be compensated if you suffered an electric shock due to somebody else’s negligence.
How did your electric shock nerve damage happen?
Perhaps you were working at height and received a shock from overhead power lines or maybe faulty electrical equipment at work caused electric shock nerve damage which was permanent. Nerve damage can lead to inflammation, pain, tingling and numbness, and depending on the body part affected it can have a serious impact on your life. For example, nerve damage to your hands could impair your ability to do your job, particularly if you use your hands a lot at work – for example if you are a typist or an artist.
When we process your claim, we will take into account the effect your injuries have had on your quality of life and this will impact your personal injury settlement. If your nerve damage is permanent and irreparable, you can expect to receive more compensation than you would for short-term nerve damage which is likely to heal, as the rest of your life will be affected.
