Cauda Equina Syndrome
Can you make a medical negligence claim for Cauda Equina Syndrome?
Cauda Equina syndrome is a condition caused when a prolapsed disc in the spine presses on the nerves located at the base of the spinal column. These nerves control the movement and feeling of the legs and lower abdomen. This is potentially a very serious condition and urgent treatment is required to prevent the nerve damage from becoming permanent. Medical staff should recognise the symptoms of this condition which may include pain and numbness in the legs and back and loss of bladder control.
Early Surgical Intervention For cauda Equina Syndrome
Medical staff should refer patients with these symptoms for urgent scans and examination by a neurosurgeon so immediate surgical intervention can be considered.
What makes 1stClaims different from other claims companies or solicitors?
Any delay in diagnosis, referral for scans or to see a neurosurgeon can sometimes cause irreparable damage and in some instances even paralysis. If you or a member of your family has suffered from cauda equina syndrome and believe there was a delay in the diagnosis or appropriate treatment of the prolapsed disc, you may have a claim for medical negligence. You should contact 1stClaims who will refer you to a specialist solicitor with expert knowledge of cauda equina syndrome.
1stClaims does not charge you for using our service and all initial enquiries with our Solicitors are also free of charge, so rest assured, this initial step of making an enquiry will not cost you anything.
Once one of our Solicitors has assessed the merits of your enquiry they will make a judgement on the likely chances of bringing a successful claim and if the prospects are good, they will normally offer to take your case on a No Win No Fee basis. NOTE: If your case is successful your Solicitor will deduct up to a maximum of 25% of your final settlement or compensation award as payment for their fees.
