Nervous System Injury Compensation

Injuries to the nervous system can lead to chronic pain, muscle weakness, spasticity, and paralysis. Individuals may experience sensory changes like numbness or hypersensitivity. Cognitive impairments, including memory loss, concentration difficulties, and mood disorders such as anxiety and depression, are also common. Some may face challenges with bladder and bowel control. The severity and range of these health issues depend on the location and extent of the nervous system damage.

Click on the links below for more detailed information regarding specific types of injuries that can affect the nervous system, together with guidance around compensation for each category of injury.


A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by a blow or jolt to the head, leading to temporary brain function disruption

Nerve Compression

Individuals who sustain nerve compression syndrome may experience chronic pain, persistent numbness, and muscle weakness, leading to reduced mobility.

Peripheral Nerve Damage

Peripheral nerve damage, also known as peripheral neuropathy, involves injury to the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord.

Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is an injury where the spinal cord is damaged, resulting in the cord’s normal functions becoming disrupted.


Following a stroke, ongoing health problems can include physical disabilities such as paralysis, muscle weakness, and difficulty with coordination.

Traumatic Brain Injury

Unlike acquired brain injury, traumatic brain injuries are caused by external factors only such as a physical assault, a traffic collision, or a strike to the head.
