Nerve contusions and accidents

Posted on July 1, 2015 2:29 pm under Premises Liability

Nerves act as the body’s transport system for stimuli and senses. When compromised, this network of fibers may cause adverse effects ranging from mild, tingling sensation to debilitating paralysis. As such, it is important to always protect yourself from injuries that may damage your nervous system.

One of the most common nerve injuries caused by accidents is nerve contusion, or a bruise along the nerve. During a direct trauma, the capillaries in the affected area rupture and bleed. The blood may then irritate the affected nerve and result in contusion. Although nerve contusion is self-limiting, the symptoms associated with it can be painful enough for you to seek medical help or to take a day or two off work.

Nerve injuries, such as contusion, could be a result of a slip and fall accident on someone else’s premises.
