Transport Canada’s National Collision Database (NCD) reported 123,141 motor vehicle accident injuries occurring in Canada in 2010, causing conditions ranging from minor bumps and bruises to serious and permanent disabilities.
One such injury is nerve damage, which can affect almost any part of the body following a car crash. There are over 100 types of nerve injuries which all require different treatments and rehabilitation to overcome. There is no limit to the type of damage an auto accident victim can sustain due to the widespread nature of the condition. Drivers can experience nerve damage injuries to their face, neck, hands, arms, legs, feet, and symptoms can sometimes take several days to present themselves.
If you or a loved one experienced nerve damage after an auto accident, you may be eligible for compensation. The cost of medical attention and continuing treatment for your condition can be a terrible strain on a victim and their family.
The law firm of Greg Monforton & Partners believes that car crash victims have suffered enough pain and anguish that they should not have to bear the burden of recovery alone. We will always fight for the MAXIMUM amount of compensation due to our clients and our skilled team of auto accident solicitors will protect your rights in a court of law.

What is Nerve Damage?
The nervous system is a highly complex bundle of sensory receptors that play a role in everything the body does. The three types of nerves autonomic, sensory, and motor nerves control both voluntary and involuntary movements, as well as provide the body with sensation.
Because of this, damage to the nerves can change a persons life forever, and some injuries can be debilitating and permanent. If a victim has sustained damage to their nerves, they will likely feel pain at the site the damage has occurred, although referral pain can be sensed in other places.
Symptoms of Nerve Damage
Though some vehicle accident injuries are obvious at the time of the collision, internal damage to the nerves can take time to be detected by the victim. Because of this, it is important to pay close attention to your body in the days after the crash.
Take note if you experience any of the following symptoms of nerve damage:
- Atrophy of muscle tissue
- Bladder dysfunction
- Dry eyes and/ or mouth
- Excessive sweating
- General numbness
- Lack of sweating
- Numbness in chest
- Sexual dysfunction
- Unable to sense body positioning
It is imperative that car accident victims seek medical attention immediately following the crash, even if they do not believe they have been seriously injured. Damage to sensory, autonomic and motor nerves can occur in any combination, so following up with a physician after experiencing any of these symptoms can better diagnose the location and extend of the nerve damage injuries.
After suffering damaged nerves, car accident victims may have a personal injury claim which could entitle them to compensation for the physical and mental anguish they experienced. The cost of hospitalization, treatment and lost wages because of time away from work are all stresses the victim and their family must bear.
