The Michigan medical malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire P.C. frequently represent clients who have suffered spinal cord injuries or nerve injuries. In this video, our medical malpractice lawyer discusses how to file a lawsuit if someone suffers Cauda Equina Syndrome.
Cauda Equina syndrome is a nerve injury that arises in the lower end of the spinal cord. By the time symptoms develop to the point someone starts to complain, nerve damage has already occurred. Surgery is nearly always needed virtually immediately to avoid greater damage. Many times, people who suffer Cauda Equina have surgery and recover completely, albeit after a rehabilitation period. However, the consequences can be very severe when there is a misdiagnosis that results in this surgery being delayed. Quite often, the patient is paralyzed from the waist down.
If you or someone you know suffers from severe and catastrophic injuries because of a misdiagnosis that delayed surgery you may be able to file a lawsuit.
