Auto accidents occur at an alarming rate in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 2 million injuries occur each year due to some sort of motor vehicle collision. Nerve damage is amongst some of the most common injuries suffered following a traffic accident. With more than 100 different types of nerve damages possibly, the treatments required for this type of damage varies significantly.
Due to the fact that nerve damage can affect every single part of the body, accident victims must understand the severity of this kind of injury. As a major concern, nerve damage can cause injuries and discomfort in an accident victims feet, legs, shoulders, arms, hands, and face. Once nerve damages have been suffered, the injured regions may lose their ability to function properly, if at all. As such, is it absolutely imperative for accident victims who have sustained nerve damage in any part of the body to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Symptoms of Nerve Injuries
Nerve damages tend to be tricky in terms of recognition of an injury. While some accident victims will feel significant pain after the injury, others will feel slight pain to none at all. The nervous system plays an enormous role in the bodys overall function. When any action, either voluntary or involuntary, takes place, an electric signal is sent through the nervous system. When an injury compromises the nervous systems ability to perform its job, the result can be debilitating.
The following are some of the most common signs of nerve damage:
- Muscle atrophy
- Sexual dysfunction
- Dry mouth and/or eyes
- Positional awareness problems
- Lack of bladder control
- Heavy sweating
- Unable to sweat
These symptoms above combine motor nerve damage, autonomic nerve damage, and sensory nerve damage. While accident victims likely experience symptoms in one of these three categories, it is possible for people to experience multiple symptoms. Because some of these signs take several days to appear, all accident victims must seek medical care immediately following an accident.
