Our Service For You


CES Claim Bristol

To make a compensation claim for cauda equina syndrome, please get in touch with our Bristol solicitors today. We act for clients across England and Wales, and have considerable experience in obtaining justice for victims of substandard cauda equina care.

Breach of duty

All medical practitioners have to provide their patients with a reasonable standard of care. This is a legal obligation which is called a ‘duty of care’. If a reasonable standard is not achieved, the medical practitioner(s) will have breached their duty of care.

Causation

If this breach causes the patient to suffer harm that would otherwise have been avoided, there will be a case of medical negligence.

For example, if there is an unreasonable delay in diagnosing/treating cauda equina syndrome, it can cause a patient long-term injuries. But for the delay, the patient would not now suffer symptoms such as bladder dysfunction, absent sexual sensation and perineal sensory dysfunction.

Can I claim?

If you think that you might be entitled to pursue a claim for substandard cauda equina care, you need to talk to a solicitor. If you live in England or Wales, you need to speak to a lawyer who works in clinical negligence law and has proven experience in cauda equina claims.

A solicitor will ask about the details of your care and the nature of the symptoms you have been left with. After considering your case, the solicitor will advise what options are open to you. If breach of duty and causation can be established, there will be grounds for a compensation claim.

What will happen next?

If you are told you can pursue a claim and you wish to proceed, your solicitor will handle everything on your behalf. It is worth noting that medical negligence claims can take years to complete. Therefore it is essential you like and trust your solicitor, as you will need to liaise during this time.

If you are unhappy with your legal team, it is sometimes possible to transfer your case to another law firm of your choice.

Time limits

As medical negligence claims can take years to conclude, it is best to contact a solicitor as soon as possible. There are time limits in place, and most medical negligence claims have three years to bring the matter before the courts. The three year limitation period begins from the date the negligence occurred.
