From the brain to the spinal cord to the fingertips, our nerves are packed tightly into our bodies. Therefore, trauma to nearly any part of the body may result in nerve damage. Nerve injuries not only take a heavy financial toll in the form of medical bills, but they may require years of rehabilitation to heal and make it extremely difficult to perform everyday activities in the meantime.
If you or your loved one’s nerve injury was caused by the negligence of another party, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. The Indianapolis nerve injury attorneys of the Hankey Law Office, P.C., believe that injury victims deserve compensation for their suffering.

Types of Nerves
Three of the primary types of nerves in the human body are:
- Autonomic nerves – Autonomic nerves are located in the brain and are responsible for regulating the body’s heart rate, blood pressure, and temperature. Damage to these nerves may result in excessive sweating, bladder dysfunction, chest pain, or even a heart attack.
- Motor nerves – The motor nerves send signals from the brain through the spinal column. They control movement and balance. Severe damage to these nerves may cause muscle atrophy, twitching, and paralysis.
- Sensory nerves – Sensory nerves send signals to the brain informing it of any sensory activity noticed in the body. Therefore, damage to sensory nerves will cause false or weakened messages to the brain. Damaged sensory nerves may cause a feeling of numbness, tingling, burning, and difficulty being aware of one’s surroundings.
