Neurological diseases and injuries to the brain and nerves can result from an accident or event such as a stroke. If the debilitating and often life-threatening neurological symptoms are a consequence of sub-standard medical care, you may be able to make a claim.
The consequences of a neurological injury will depend on what part of the nervous system is injured: the brain and spinal cord, or the peripheral nervous system and the autonomic nervous system. In some cases neurological injuries can be life-changing and sometimes fatal.
Some neurological injuries can result from birth injury or diseases such as measles, meningitis or hydrocephalus. Thrombosis affecting blood vessels in the brain and infections can result in an interruption in the oxygenated blood supply causing damage to the central nervous system.
In other neurological injuries, serious nerve damage can be caused by an untreated spinal disc protrusion leading to cauda equina syndrome. With this and some other examples of nerve damage, the quicker the neurological symptoms are diagnosed and treated, the better the outcome.
