One of the trickier injuries to diagnose and treat after a car accident is nerve damage. There are approximately 7 trillion nerves in your body, and they can be injured in many ways including being stretched, torn, or pinched. What accident victims often don’t realize is that nerve damage can happen not only in a major motor vehicle accident but even in the case of a minor “fender bender.” One of the most common car accident injuries—whiplash—can be the cause of nerve damage. Some other types of nerve injury include herniated disks and injuries that result from broken bones and impact to the spine.

Know the Symptoms

It’s important to recognize the symptoms of nerve damage. They can be elusive, and this is one reason it’s important to get medical attention as soon after an accident as possible. A medical professional will have an easier time recognizing potential nerve injuries. Some symptoms to watch for include:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Numbness in arms, legs, feet, or hands
  • Paralysis
  • Lack of coordination, falling
  • Jabbing, throbbing, or burning pain
  • Increased sensitivity to temperature or touch
  • Digestive problems
  • Pain during normally painless activities like sleeping
  • Sudden drop in blood pressure
  • Excessive sweating or inability to sweat


Your nerves are responsible for many different functions in your body and hence the wide-ranging symptoms. In addition, because nerves are responsible for carrying messages to and from your brain, treating nerve damage can be a long and complicated process, resulting in chronic pain and disability.

An experienced attorney can help you obtain the compensation you will need now and in the future for medical expenses, lost wages, and to deal with other after-effects of a nerve injury from an accident.

Client Testimonials

Herb T. Testimonial

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

S.B. Testimonial

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

Jereme S. Testimonial

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
