At the Law Offices of Louis J. Bertsche, we represent people who have suffered nerve injuries due to medical malpractice. Neuropathy, or damage to nerves, can result from any number of medical errors, from surgical errors to IV infiltration.
Causes of Nerve Injuries
Attorney Louis Bertsche represents people who have suffered nerve damage due to medical negligence:
- Surgical errors
- Nursing errors
- Blood draw errors
- Surgical positioning errors
- Medication errors
- Birth injuries — Including Erb’s Palsy
- IV infiltration — Occurs when an IV is improperly inserted and fluid enters soft tissue instead of vein. This can cause severe tissue damage.
If you have suffered severed nerves, nerve compression, neuralgia, or another nerve injury due to medical malpractice, please contact our firm. We will work to understand the cause of your injury and assist you in taking proper legal steps to secure compensation.
The Severity of a Nerve Injury
In most cases, a nerve injury is a permanent injury. An individual who has suffered a damaged nerve has a few options for recovery. A patient may require years of therapy and medical care to deal with the effects of a nerve injury. It is critical for a lawyer to assess the current and long-term effects associated with the injury and seek compensation accordingly.
