Peripheral Neuropathy Attorneys – Find Legal Help Here
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that causes an individual to lose sensation in their extremities such as the hands or the legs. This condition may be caused by chronic illnesses such as diabetes mellitus, or a neurodegenerative illness, and even as a result of botched surgery. Peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage may come on after a round of antibiotics, and may sometimes be permanent. We don’t usually think about the nerves that criss-cross our bodies, but they play a vital role in keeping us safe by letting us know whether something is too hot or too cold, or elicits painful stimuli so we can stop doing it in order to prevent further damage to the body. Peripheral neuropathy has a negligence aspect to it, and it is usually due to someone else not doing what they were meant to do that you developed it. As such, you are well within your rights when it comes to filing a lawsuit to recover money damages for this illness, and we’re here to help with that.

Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy treatment usually revolves around helping patients get relief from the symptoms, and it is not uncommon for physicians to play the waiting game in order to see whether the condition will improve or go into remission on its own. That said, anti-seizure medication, NSAIDs and antidepressants may be prescribed in order to alleviate pain and discomfort.
