Foot Drop Nerve Damage Lawsuit – Medical Malpractice Attorney


Foot drop is a medical condition where the individual is unable to properly lift the front part of the foot resulting in the dragging of the foot on the ground. Drop foot is the result of moderate to severe damage to the peroneal nerve, trauma to the sciatic nerve, or general paralysis of the muscles. Damage to the nerve is often the result of accidents, dog bites, workplace injuries, acts of violence including the use of lethal weapons, and medical (surgery) malpractice. Victims of foot drop or other types of severe nerve damage caused by the negligent or intentional acts of others are entitled to monetary compensation from all at fault parties.
