Suffered Nerve Damage Due to a Car Accident?

Call Our Legal Team Today

Types of nerve damage that can occur after a car accident range from minimal to severe and can include damage to spinal nerves, sensory nerves, and digital nerves. When damage to the nerves in the brain or spinal cord occurs, permanent and disabling injuries may be a result.


If you have suffered nerve damage following a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the negligent driver and their insurance company. At The Kalka Law Group, we have more than 30 years of combined legal experience and a history of millions of dollars recovered for our clients.

We can analyze the details of your case and work quickly to uncover whether you may be entitled to financial help to cover the pain and suffering, loss of income, and other devastating effects that your injuries have caused.

When you call for your free initial consultation, you will get to speak with an actual attorney about your accident.


Just because you don't realize that you have nerve damage, doesn't mean it's not there. Sometimes nerve damage may not show up immediately. This is why it is extremely important to get checked out by a doctor in the days following your accident. Ideally, you will be seen within a few hours.

After a car crash, you may develop noticeable symptoms of nerve damage that you should have your doctor examine immediately, including:

  • Tingling sensation in your extremities
  • Limbs falling asleep when compressed
  • Abnormal sensitivity and pain
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Loss of strength and muscle atrophy
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Problems holding or releasing urine and bowels
  • Paralysis


A doctor should run tests to uncover the extent of your nerve damage and provide you with treatment options. Your doctor will reach a neuropathy diagnosis, which essentially means that your nerves have been inflamed or damaged due to the crash. The diagnosis process will include a review of your medical history to see if there are any other explanations for your chronic pain or numbness.

The doctor might also want to conduct further tests that include:

  • Closely examining your skin for reactions and sensitivity
  • Measuring your pulse at several different body locations
  • Checking your reflexes, possibly with a tuning fork
  • Ordering diagnostic tests like nerve and skin biopsies

For many victims of car accidents that suffer from nerve damage, doctors are able to provide them with pain medication so that they can live a more comfortable life. Surgery and physical therapy can help correct the damage that has been done, too. If your nerve damage is severe, as in the case of paralysis, there may not be treatments available to help you recover fully, though.

How Often Does a Car Accident Cause Nerve Damage?

Nerve damage caused by a car accident might be more common than you think because even low-speed collisions can cause it. Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries, and it usually affects the nerves in the neck, shoulder, and upper back. Another extremely common type of nerve injury is a pinched nerve, which can happen due to a sudden blunt force trauma compressing a body part around a nerve. This amount of force is typical of a high-speed collision.

Two serious forms of nerve damage that you could suffer in a car accident are neuropathy and radiculopathy. Neuropathy occurs when a nerve or bundle of nerves becomes inflamed due to irritation, which can result in sharp, chronic pain that worsens when the affected body part is used. Radiculopathy occurs when the spinal nerve or cord is inflamed. Depending on what part of the spinal cord is afflicted, radiculopathy has the potential to be completely debilitating.


It is also important to retain legal help as quickly as possible so that all necessary evidence for your claim can be procured by our team, allowing you to recover while we handle the details of the case.
