How much compensation for nerve damage?


How much compensation for nerve damage following a no fault accident?

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault (any type of accident) within the last three years, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the person who was responsible for the accident.

For example you may be asking how much compensation can I get for a broken arm? You may think that this is an easy question to answer, but unless a solicitor is in possession of a detailed medical report he or she is unable to give you an accurate figure. Even when in possession of all the documentation he or she needs to build your case, it may be impossible to give you anything but an estimate in answer to your question, ‘how much compensation can I get for nerve damage to my broken arm’?

How much compensation can I get for a broken arm?

In order to at least arrive at an estimate as an answer to the question how much compensation can I get for a broken arm, a solicitor would have to consult the Judicial Studies Board guidelines as well as doing some research into past awards made to others with similar injuries to yours.

However, first of all it would be necessary to prove (without doubt) that someone else was responsible for your accident because of their negligence. If there was doubt, then you would probably not receive the maximum amount of compensation.

Severe injury to the arm such as brachial plexus damage (damage to the network of nerves in the neck and shoulder region which connect the spinal cord with the wrist, hand and shoulder) would give you a substantial sum.

In an accident, such as a motorbike accident, the nerves can actually tear out of their roots in the neck. This would mean that you are unable to move your arm, or parts of it. However some damage to the brachial plexus can be minor and full recovery will only take a few weeks. For severe damage you could receive a considerably large payment.
