In the vast majority of cases, nerve damage is temporary when properly diagnosed and treated. In cases where the nerve damage is neglected and left untreated, the affected body part or bodily system can deteriorate over time. It is possible, in these cases, for the damage to become permanent and for the victim to suffer an irreversible loss of function.
If a doctor failed to properly diagnose or treat your condition and you suffered permanent damage as a result, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. While the doctor will likely try to hide behind the defense that he or she did the same thing that any reasonable doctor would have done, it does not take away from the fact that his or her actions caused you significant harm.
