Have I Been Treated Negligently?
Spinal injuries can be extremely debilitating and have a significant affect on your quality of life. When patients are misdiagnosed, mistreated or there is an unacceptable delay in diagnosis it can lead to an acceleration of an existing injury or perhaps the creation of an additional injury.
Cases of mistreatment and misdiagnosis often arise in relation to Cauda Equine Syndrome as it is necessary to identify and treat the problem quite quickly. Failure to treat the problem quickly and effectively can lead to serious problems including paralysis, incontinence, leg and back problems.
Another common example of negligence is when patients have not given their full consent to surgical intervention which has caused spinal injury.
