About Trigeminal Neuralgia
Had you ever heard of trigeminal neuralgia prior to your accident and your diagnosis? Most people have never heard of trigeminal neuralgia because it is such a rare diagnosis. Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain disorder that affects the trigeminal nerve
. Trigeminal neuralgia can be categorized into two categories: typical trigeminal neuralgia
and atypical trigeminal neuralgia
. Typical trigeminal neuralgia
is characterized by a severe shock-like pain that occurs suddenly on one side of the face. Bursts of constant and severe pain can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. In general, episodes of typical trigeminal neuralgia can last a few hours (about 2 hours). On the contrary, atypical trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by constant pain. The constant pain is usually associated with a stabbing or burning sensation. Although the pain is constant in atypical trigeminal neuralgia, the pain is usually not as severe as the pain in typical trigeminal neuralgia. In many cases, those suffering trigeminal neuralgia are either suffering from typical or atypical trigeminal neuralgia; however, it is possible for victims to suffer both types concurrently. The chronic pain disorder can affect the lives of those suffering from trigeminal neuralgia in many ways – some people can never live the same life they were living prior to the slip and fall accident.
Can Slip and Fall Accidents Lead to Trigeminal Neuralgia?
Although trigeminal neuralgia is not one of the more common injuries associated with slip and fall accidents, it can occur as a direct result of slip and fall accidents. Trigeminal neuralgia is associated with an injury to the trigeminal nerve. Injuries to the trigeminal nerve can occur during slip and fall accidents that specifically include trauma to the head or face. Head injuries, skull injuries, face injuries, and brain injuries, for example, are all traumatic enough to severely damage the trigeminal nerve. If your slip and fall accident resulted in trauma to your head/face, you likely also suffered trigeminal nerve damage that is causing your trigeminal neuralgia. If your slip and fall accident resulted in trigeminal neuralgia, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance to explore your legal options.
Can I sue if I suffered Trigeminal Neuralgia due to a Slip and Fall Accident?
If you suffered trigeminal neuralgia due to a slip and fall accident, you will likely have grounds to sue – given that the slip and fall accident
in which you were injured was caused by the negligent actions of a party. For a successful claim, you will have to prove negligence in your slip and fall accident. In other words, you will have to prove that someone owed you a duty of care, someone breached their duty of care, the breach of duty caused your accident, and the accident caused your injuries. You will also have to prove that the injuries that you suffered resulted in your trigeminal neuralgia. If you would like to discuss your right to file a trigeminal neuralgia slip and fall lawsuit against a liable party, do not hesitate to contact the experts at Downtown L.A Law Group. Our trigeminal neuralgia slip and fall experts are ready to evaluate your current situation and provide you with the guidance that you need to understand your right to sue and recover compensation.
The Right to Recover Compensation
Trigeminal neuralgia can affect your life in many ways; because of that, victims who file successful trigeminal neuralgia slip and fall claims are usually eligible to recover compensation for the harm that they suffered. How much is a trigeminal neuralgia slip and fall claim worth? How much compensation could you receive? What type of compensation could you recover? Although the specific type and amount of compensation that you could receive depends on the details of your claim, you should be familiar with the following categories of compensation:
- Medical expenses – for the medical costs associated with treatment for your slip and fall injuries, including your trigeminal neuralgia
- Lost income – for the income that was directly lost and will continue to be lost because of your trigeminal neuralgia
- Pain and suffering – for the mental and emotional distress directly caused by your trigeminal neuralgia
- Loss of consortium – for the loss of ability to have a normal relationship with the victim because of the trigeminal neuralgia (usually reserved for family members/spouses, for example)
- Punitive damages – compensation awarded as punishment to the defendant

Is My Claim Subject to a Statute of Limitations?
All claims are subject to a statute of limitations – trigeminal neuralgia slip and fall accidents are not an exception. Slip and fall accidents are usually subject to a two-year statute of limitations (this statute could vary depending on where the victim suffered the accident and where the victim is pursuing the claim, for example). If your claim is not filed within the statute of limitations, you will lose your right to sue. If you lose your right to sue, you also lose your right to recover compensation. To discuss the statute of limitations that might apply to your claim, do not hesitate to contact our experts at your earliest convenience.
