A neurological disorder is a disease involving the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system PNS). The brain and spinal cord makeup the CNS as well as their different structures. The PNS is comprised of cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junction, and muscles. These different disorders can include epilepsy, Alzheimer disease and other dementias, cerebrovascular diseases including stroke, migraine and other headache disorders, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuro-infections, brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, traumatic disorders of the nervous system due to head trauma. Neurological disorders can also be the result of malnutrition. When diagnosed with a neurological disorder of some sort your first thought may not be to seek legal recourse against anyone (such as your doctor or hospital) or anything (drug company, chemical company, your employer, etc.) but you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation. Who, or what, is liable for your condition depends on how you developed the disorder and benefits, damages and monetary compensation you may qualify for can be lost wage compensation, medical expenses, pain and suffering and lowered quality of life compensation among others. Having lost a loved one may entitle their estate to death benefits, funeral benefits and survival benefits.
