Back Surgery & Spinal Surgery Claims

If I have a back and spinal case


If I have a back and spinal case

Establishing if you have a case for making a back and spinal injury claim as a consequence of medical negligence depends on proving that a breach of the duty owed to you by the surgeon or other medical staff directly caused you an injury.

There must be negligence in misdiagnosing your condition, failing to treat it properly or flaws in the choice of procedure itself. Once a treatment has been selected, it is essential that the surgeon answers all your questions and makes sure you are fully aware of what can go wrong, the chances of that happening and the possible consequences for you.

Alternatively, there must be fault in the way any surgical procedure was carried out which subsequently resulted in the injury. Failures and problems in post-operative care that lead to avoidable complications could also mean you could make a claim for compensation.

You will have a good case if our expert medical negligence solicitors can prove that 'on the balance of probability' (i.e. a greater than 50% likelihood) it was those failures, before, during or after back and spinal surgery that were directly responsible for the injuries and  losses you suffered as a result.
