Spinal Cord Injury Types

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can occur due to various types of medical error. The injury can occur suddenly as a result of a medical or surgical complication, or it may occur over time because of a delay in the diagnosis of an otherwise treatable issue. The impact of a spinal-cord injury can be life-altering. Our team has extensive experience working on behalf of victims of preventable spinal cord injury.

Surgical Complication

Surgical complications can cause damage to the spinal cord or to the nerves. The resulting injury, including paralysis, may be permanent. While the fact of an injury is not proof of negligence, the facts and the clinical history leading up to injury should be carefully reviewed.

Cauda Equina

The cauda equine is the bundle of nerve roots at the end of the spinal cord. When those roots become compressed, the lower extremities can suffer a loss of motor and sensory function. This is a medical emergency. If it is not recognized and treated in time, permanent paralysis and an inability to regulate bowel and bladder movements is possible. As with other serious injuries, it is important to have a qualified and experience medical malpractice lawyer review the medical records.

Spinal Abscess

Spinal abscess refers to a swollen area of the spinal cord, which is usually caused by infection. If the abscess is not recognized and treated urgently, this can cause the spinal cord to become compressed and severe paralysis can occur. A qualified medical malpractice lawyer can help you understand if your condition was appropriately managed.

 

Do You Have A Case?

To determine if you have a case, it is important for any lawyer to review the relevant medical records and to consult with experts. If your child has suffered a significant injury and you are concerned about the care provided, call us for a free consultation.

We can help if you...

 

Negligence

If we can prove, with expert evidence, that the healthcare practitioner fell below a reasonable standard of care and caused or contributed to an injury.

 

Long Term Impairment

If the resulting injury is permanent with serious consequences on the injured person's daily life.

We cannot help if you...

 

Minor or Short Term Impairment

Medical errors and negligence almost always cause some pain and suffering to victims and their families. If the resulting injury is not permanent in nature, a formal lawsuit may not be the appropriate route. In these cases, you may wish to contact the relevant Regulator (for example, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario), or the Patient Relations department at the hospital, in order to voice your concerns.

 

Bedside Manner Complaints

Our perception about the quality of healthcare we receive as patients can be dependent on the manner in which it was delivered. If you feel that you were subject to poor bedside manner or even a rude or dismissive attitude, you should contact the Patient Relations department at the hospital in order to voice your concerns.

We can review the situation in detail with you and provide you with the guidance necessary to figure out whether there is a basis for a claim in medical negligence.

We understand that people who are dealing with a serious injury or adverse outcome can be under a great deal of financial pressure, especially if their condition is affecting their ability to work or requires significant care costs. We are willing to act for seriously injured persons or their families on a contingency basis, which means we will be paid on a percentage of recovery basis when your case is settled or once a verdict is obtained at trial. The percentage rate will vary based on the situation, but you will not pay our legal fees during the litigation. We are only paid if we are successful. We will go through all of this information with you in detail before we start working on your case.
