Was My Paralysis Caused by Negligence?
In some cases, paralysis is caused from a spinal cord injury suffered in an accident, and there is nothing the doctor or hospital staff could have done to prevent paralysis. In cases like these, you may have a cause of action against the party who caused the accident.
In other cases, paralysis is caused not by the condition that led to your admission to a hospital but by care you received while hospitalized. Examples of spinal cord injuries caused by negligent care include:
- Failure to diagnose a fractured vertebra, resulting in spinal cord damage
- Errors during spinal surgery
- Damaging the spinal cord while operating on adjoining tissues
- Failure by an emergency medical technician or hospital staff to keep your spine immobile following a traumatic injury
- Falls in a hospital
If you or someone in your family has suffered paralysis as a result of the care you received in a hospital, emergency room or other medical facility, contact our law firm. We will investigate your case and give you an honest appraisal of your options for recovering compensation for past and future medical treatment, home modifications, special vehicles, lost earnings, personal assistance, and disability resulting from paralysis.
