Experienced Louisiana Paralysis and Crush Injury LawyersMany people involved in car accidents, industrial accidents and accidents at sea suffer injuries that damage nervous tissue. Nerve damage varies widely in type and severity, with consequences including severe pain, numbness (loss of sensation), tingling and decreased mobility or paralysis.
Serious nerve injuries generally result from compression, stretching or cutting of nerves. Obtaining an accurate medical diagnosis and the confident prognosis is challenging when nerve injury is involved, and surgical outcomes in severe cases are typically very uncertain.
