Our Service For You


How Can A Cauda Equina Solicitor Help You?

If you have been adversely affected by cauda equina syndrome, you may be able to claim compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured. A solicitor that specialises in cauda equina claims will be able to provide the support and advice you need.

Cauda Equina Syndrome

Cauda equina syndrome is when the nerves at the bottom of the spine become trapped. This may happen because of a traumatic incident such as a car crash, or because of a medical condition that places pressure upon the nerves (for example, a tumour, slipped disc or inflammation of the spine.)

The compressed nerves must be released in a timely fashion; otherwise the sufferer will be left with permanent neurological damage. This will mean the nerves have lost a degree of function, resulting in problems such as chronic pain, bladder dysfunction and loss of sexual sensation.

If such complications do arise because of a delay, it is necessary to consider who is responsible. If the patient did not seek medical attention at the onset of symptoms, there may be nothing doctors could have done to improve the prognosis. However, if medical professionals themselves are to blame for the setback (perhaps because of a misdiagnosis) then they could be held accountable.

Legal assistance for Cauda Equina Syndrome

If you think the actions (or inactions) of doctors caused your cauda equina complications, you need to speak to a legal professional. A solicitor who specialises in cauda equina negligence will be able to listen to the details of your treatment before suggesting whether or not you have been the victim of a substandard level of medical care. If you have, you need to think about whether you would like to pursue compensation for the damage you have been done. However, it is important not to defer your decision for too long as medical negligence claims must be made within three years of the event.

Should you choose to proceed with litigation, your solicitor will handle your claim on your behalf. He or she will obtain your medical records and review them, ask a medical expert to examine you and write a report, send a letter of claim to the other side and negotiate a compensation settlement with the other side. This figure will reflect your pain and suffering, and will also recover any money you have lost because of your health complaints. Because cauda equina syndrome often leads to very serious complications, your solicitor will ensure that the amount of compensation you receive truly reflects the terrible injuries you have been caused.
