Having a healthy, robust and fully functioning nervous system is very important in terms of allowing a person to live a comfortable, pain free life. The nervous system innervates every part of the body and controls its functions. This includes simple motor skills such as moving your arm or leg as well as more complex functions such as breathing, heartbeat and processing information via the five senses. In the event of a serious accident or injury the nervous system can become damaged therefore disrupting the victims ability to live, work and play normally without chronic pain and suffering.

Common Types Of Nerve Injuries
- Neurapraxia- The least severe form of a nerve injury. It usually results in full recovery and use of the impacted nerve. The nerve structure stays intact in this type of injury although there is a temporary interruption in nerve impulse conduction along the nerve fiber.
- Axonotmesis- This type of nerve damage is slightly more severe. There is disruption of the neuronal axon. Damage of this type can result in paralysis of the motor, sensory & autonomic nervous systems. This injury is primarily seen in a crushing type of injury and if the force creating the compression is removed in a timely manner the axon may regenerate. In best case scenarios a full recovery can be enjoyed with this type of damage as well.
- Neurotmesis- A very severe type of nerve damage with minimal potential for full recovery. Deep contusions, cuts and lacerations are common accidents or injuries resulting in neurotmesis. This type of injury involves severing, cutting or division of portions of the nerve fibers parts such as the axon and the enveloping connective tissue.
Accidents Involving Nerve Damage
Damage to the nervous systems and the nerves themselves can be caused by virtually any type of injury accident. These accidents can occur in the workplace, in the home and while driving on the road in the form of a car crash, trucking accident, hit & run accident or motorcycle accident. Also, severe falls, construction site accidents and dog bites can result in temporary and/or permanent nerve damage.
