Was The Injury Preventable?
There are risks to any medical procedure, and no doctor can guarantee a positive outcome. However, if your doctor failed to meet the standard of care when performing your procedure, and you were injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. The following are examples of medical malpractice that can lead to paralysis:
- Damaging the spinal cord or nerves when operating on a patient’s back
- Failure to promptly treat a stroke
- Failure to treat an infection, leading to damage of the spinal cord
- Failure to diagnose and treat diseases such as Guillain-Barré syndrome
When a doctor makes a mistake, a patient’s life can be changed forever. If you have suffered a paralysis injury, you are likely to need significant medical care and assistance for the rest of your life. You may need extensive home modifications, special vehicles and adaptive devices. If you are unable to work, your family will need help paying bills.
Our goal as your attorneys is to make sure the money is there to help you obtain the best medical care and live as full a life as possible. Our law firm has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
