Claiming Compensation for Cauda Equina Syndrome

Claiming Compensation for Cauda Equina Syndrome

If you are suffering with the effects of cauda equina syndrome, you will know how awful this condition can be. What you may not know, however, is that you may be able to claim compensation for your situation.

The Devastation of Cauda Equina Syndrome

Cauda equina syndrome is a fairly rare condition. Many people have never heard of it. Indeed, many GPs are unfamiliar with it. But to those who suffer with it, it is only too real and its effects can be life-changing.

If you are unfortunate enough to have developed cauda equina syndrome, you may well be struggling to control your bowels and your bladder; your sex life may have been ruined by your loss of sensation; you may be finding it difficult to walk, and you may be in constant pain.

Professional Impact

For many people suffering with cauda equina syndrome, continuing to work in their chosen career proves impossible. Dealing with their continence issues at home can be a daily struggle, but trying to travel to work and function effectively can be so problematic as to make working too difficult to achieve. This can lead to a dramatic loss of income and self-esteem.

Domestic Impact

People with cauda equina syndrome frequently find that they need adjustments to be made to their accommodation or even to find new accommodation to suit their physical disabilities.

Undertaking simple household chores can be a major hurdle.

Social & Emotional Impact

Personal relationships can suffer and socialising can become very difficult. Coping emotionally with the dramatic change in life-style and loss of independence can lead many sufferers of cauda equina syndrome to become depressed and reclusive.

Could your cauda equina syndrome have been avoided?

If your cauda equina syndrome symptoms are significantly worse than should have been the case, you might wish to consider making a claim for compensation.

The role of the medical profession in cauda equina syndrome is absolutely vital and a failure by your medical practitioner to recognise the symptoms and urgency of cauda equina syndrome can make the difference between a good and a poor outcome.

When a patient attends their GP or A&E with the symptoms of incomplete cauda equina syndrome, it is vital that they are referred for an emergency MRI scan and then for emergency surgery in order to relieve the pressure on their cauda equina nerves before their loss of neurological function deteriorates.

Medical Negligence

If your diagnosis or treatment were delayed, causing your appalling on-going symptoms, you should speak to a solicitor who specialises in medical negligence.
