Most of the time, we don't think about our nervous systems, especially when they're working as they are supposed to. But if you've sustained nerve damage as a result of medical malpractice, it's hard to think about anything else. Your nervous system is made up of a network of cells that send messages back and forth between your brain and every part of your body. Nerves are what make it possible to feel sensations and move your body. Without your even being aware of it, nerves transmit signals that control bodily functions like breathing, digestion, and even your heartbeat.

Your nervous system allows you to go about your life: working, caring for your family, participating in sports and hobbies, and enjoying life's simple pleasures. As amazing as your nervous system is, it is also delicate, and when a nerve is injured, it can lead to severe pain, disfigurement, loss of sensation, and even permanent disability. Nerve injuries may cause anesthesia, dysesthesia or paresthesia. When a nerve injury is caused by a doctor's negligence, it is medical malpractice.
