Cauda Equina Syndrome most commonly results from a prolapsed disc pressing onto the nerves at the base of the spine. Irreparable nerve damage can be caused if the condition is not treated quickly. Surgical intervention by a competent neurosurgeon should, in appropriate cases, occur at the first possible opportunity to prevent long term damage. If you think that your condition has worsened as a result of medical negligence, contact our cauda equina syndrome solicitors for advice at no cost.

Delayed Diagnosis & Negligent Surgery

Medical negligence claims usually arise as a result of delay in diagnosis or negligent surgery rendering the condition untreatable and leaving considerable discomfort and disability which can in the most serious cases include paraplegia. This problem is caused when pressure is exerted on the bundle of nerve fibres at the base of the spinal column which radiate out to the legs and lower areas of the abdomen. Pressure on these nerves causes pain, sensory loss in the sacral region, weakness in the legs and loss of bladder control which can be confirmed by diagnostic techniques including MRI scan, Myelography and CAT scans. Prolapsed discs are common and 2% of lumbar disc protrusions result in pressure on the nerves. The surgical treatment of an acute nerve compression is usually regarded as a medical emergency due to the potential for serious permanent damage if treatment is delayed. Our cauda equina solicitors have great experience in dealing with spinal cord injury compensation claims.
