The amount of compensation for a nerve damage injury depends a lot on the personal circumstances. Usually, the process works like this. A solicitor specialising in personal injury claims will sit with you and calculate the nerve damage injury claim value keeping in mind various considerations. These considerations will include your age, sex and overall health before the accident leading to the nerve damage. All of these are needed to understand and calculate the monetary value of the damage.

In case, the nerve damage injury affects your daily life by inhibiting your ability to perform essential day-to-day tasks, the compensation claim will definitely be higher than what you’ll get if it does not affect your daily life.
The nerve damage injury compensation claim will not just include compensation for the physical damage but will also take into account the psychological damage due to the accident causing the nerve injury. In case you have confidence issues at present or may have such issues in the future due to the nerve damage, the claim for compensation will also take this into account.
The compensation claim for nerve damage injury will also include the incurred financial costs directly attributable to the nerve injury in addition to the above. These financial costs can include the money spent on the medical attention immediately after the accident as well as the transportation costs if the accident has left you unable to drive while you recover from the accident.

Examples of successful nerve damage compensation claims
Jamie Lewis, of Blackwood (unrelated to ourselves), has been awarded £450,000 in compensation for permanent damage to his left arm due to excessive force used by doctors while delivering him. The lawyers for Mr Lewis successfully argued that doctors used excessive force during his birth as he was stuck and this excessive force caused permanent damage to nerves in the neck which resulted in paralysis in left arm and hand. This paralysis could have been prevented if doctors had taken care to use less force. This case was against the Gwent Healthcare NHS Trust which runs the Royal Gwent Hospital in Newport.
A welder, working at the Hulme Group, has been awarded a sum of £500,000 in compensation for injury suffered at work. This injury at work resulted in a fractured eye socket as well as nerve damage in the left cheek. He had to undergo five surgeries to rebuild the eye socket as well as surgery for spinal cord and brain surgery to deal with the pain. The compensation also accounted for the loss of future employability due to the accident.
