    umm i'm not sure you can put a pricetag on how you got TN tho if you can prove it was from the accident and not a preexisting condition then i guess you could make a case.tho the brain has no nerves itself. may i ask how come you waited 18 months to decide to do this? how has tn impacted your life not the anxiety or ptsd just the tn?

    my compensation claim started after the accident and the doctor has recently prscirbed gabapentin to sort the pain from the tn that developed after the accident, as the pain was getting worse, the stabbing pains actually start at the wound site and doc agress on the condition. my solicitr says that we will poss need an examination to confirm and suggests an MRI scan etc. The case has just taken this length of time as the other partys insurance are dragging their heels, none of the other 3 other ladies with me involved in the accident have been paid out either. I was wondering whether th development of TN due to injury to scalp as websites show is part of a claim as it wasnt something I had before

    Unfortunately medical liability is a serious pain in the butt. When I went septic it was because I told them I was pain and somthing was wrong (preggers at the time) I lost baby at 5 months 2 days later and was on life support. That was in 2010 Still have not settled my case. But conferming the cause of trigeminal neuralgia is a pain in it self. Mine was caused by a bad case of shingles on the left side of my face t has been 4 years and its only getting worse. I do wish you luck and Im around if you have any questions.
