What Does Cauda Equina Compensation Cover?

If you have suffered Cauda Equina Syndrome complications because of medical error, you will be entitled to compensation for the damages you have sustained.

Compensation for cauda equina syndrome

In medical negligence claims – such as cauda equina claims – compensation is awarded for your general damages and your special damages. These can be explained as follows:

1. General damages

Your general damages intend to reflect the pain, suffering and loss of amenity you have experienced because of medical negligence.

If not managed in an acceptable manner, Cauda Equina Syndrome can lead to extremely traumatic complications for the individual concerned, leaving them to endure chronic back and leg pain, partial or total paralysis, sexual dysfunction, bowel dysfunction and bladder dysfunction (often necessitating a catheter).

Evidently this represents a high level of pain and suffering, so your general damages will be higher than average. And although this will not undo the impact negligence has had on your physical, emotional and social life, it will provide some form of recompense.

2. Special damages

Your special damages intend to recover the acute financial loss you have incurred. This should put you back in the financial position you were in before the negligence happened.

Special damages can cover a wide range of monetary loss. The largest portion of your damages will probably be your loss of earnings, as Cauda Equina Syndrome can significantly compromise your ability to work. You may also have lost money due to medical treatment, travelling to receive medical treatment and paying for care and assistance while you are at home.

How to start your compensation claim

Because negligently managed Cauda Equina Syndrome can result in serious long-term complications, cauda equina compensation settlements are often very high.

If you believe you or your loved one is entitled to such financial redress, you should speak to a solicitor who specialises in cauda equina claims. This will allow you to clarify your legal position, helping you understand whether or not you are able to pursue a claim. If so, your solicitor will begin the claims process for you, handling everything on your behalf.
