Claiming Compensation For Cauda Equina Syndrome

A patient with Cauda Equina Syndrome requires immediate diagnosis and urgent treatment. If medical professionals fail on either count, it may be that care provided fell below an acceptable standard. If this has happened to you, contact a solicitor to find out whether you can claim compensation for injuries you have sustained.

Are You Entitled To Make A Claim?

Medical professionals have a duty of care towards all their patients. If this standard of care falls below an acceptable standard, which in turn causes a patient to suffer injury, there will have been a breach of duty. If so, it will be possible for the injured patient to make a medical negligence claim.

But how, exactly, can you be sure you have been the victim of medical negligence? The easiest way is to contact a legal expert who specialises in this area of the law. After a discussion about the treatment you received, a medical negligence solicitor will be able to suggest whether you are in a position to make a cauda equina compensation claim.

What Can You Claim For?

If you are able to make a claim for the substandard level of care you received, your solicitor will work on your behalf, helping you recover the compensation to which you are legally entitled.

The exact sum of compensation will vary from case to case. However, when medical mistakes are made during the diagnosis and treatment of Cauda Equina Syndrome, the consequences of can be devastating. Indeed, patients are often left with long-term health complications, many of which are of a serious and debilitating nature. Considering the significant impact upon the life of the patient and their loved ones, cauda equina claims are often of a very high value.

Your compensation claim will consist of two separate elements:-

1. General damages

General damages relates to the pain, suffering and loss of amenity you have experienced. This reflects: the severity of physical and psychological injury you have sustained, the way in which these injuries have affected your life, the way in which these injuries will continue to affect your life.

2. Special damages

Special damages relates to the acute financial loss you have incurred as a direct result of your injuries. This may include anything such as a loss of earnings, the cost of medical treatment or the expense of specialist assistance (which you did not require before).
