Our Service For You


Making A Cauda Equina Medical Negligence Claim

If you have had Cauda Equina Syndrome that was poorly managed by medical professionals, it is likely you will be facing long-term health complications – both of a physical and psychological nature. If so, you need to speak to a medical negligence solicitor about the treatment you received, as you may well be the victim of a substandard level of care. This means you could be legally entitled to claim compensation for the injuries you have sustained.

When Does Cauda Equina Syndrome Amount To Medical Negligence?

Cauda Equina Syndrome is regarded as a medical emergency. This means it is paramount doctors immediately recognise the signs of nerve compression in a patient. Further tests should then be performed to confirm whether a patient is suffering from Cauda Equina Syndrome, and if so, what the underlying cause is. The appropriate course of treatment must then be provided as quickly as possible. As long as there are few delays, a patient’s chance of recovery will be much more favourable.

However, there are unfortunately times when medical errors cause treatment to be withheld. This may arise for any number of reasons, with some of the most common including:-

All of the above examples mean that treatment to decompress the nerves is delayed. This will significantly reduce a patient’s hope of making a full recovery, as the nerves will quickly become irreparably damaged. If this does occur, then a patient will not regain their previous level of function, and will instead be left to suffer long-term health complications.

If medical errors cause a patient to suffer permanent neurological damage due, then he/she will have been the victim of a substandard level of care. Their injuries – which are often of a serious and debilitating nature – will be the direct result of medical negligence. A patient will therefore be entitled to make a claim against the doctor or hospital in question, whose actions (or inactions) caused them unnecessary pain and suffering.

How Do You Know If You Can Claim?

All cases of Cauda Equina Syndrome are different, and there are times when a delay will not amount to negligence. Even so, if you do suspect that you or a loved one has suffered unacceptable levels of medical care, you should speak to a medical negligence solicitor as soon as possible. After a brief consultation, a solicitor will be able to assess the details of your case before suggesting whether or not you have grounds to make a claim. This is the easiest way to discover whether you have been the victim of a substandard level of care.
