Back Surgery & Spinal Surgery Claims

More about back and spinal claims


More about back and spinal claims

The most common causes of spinal injuries due to clinical negligence are complications resulting from the wrong choice of procedure, inadequate surgical technique or misdiagnosis and delayed treatment.

Injuries during spinal surgery, range from failure to stabilise fractures or treat congenital disorders and slipped discs to failures in surgery to treat scoliosis (curvature of the spine). Damage doesn't only involve the spinal cord but can also include soft tissues and spinal nerves.

Problems can arise during surgery if a patient has prolonged low blood pressure. Such clinical errors and misdiagnoses can result in serious complications which can require even further extensive, and inherently risky, spinal surgery.

There are statutory time limits involved in making any back and spinal claim, so it is important you speak to us as soon as possible as we will need to gather medical evidence in support of your compensation claim. This evidence will normally come from an independent medical expert such as a neurosurgeon or orthopaedic consultant.

Making a back and spinal injury claim can be a daunting prospect because these medical negligence cases take time to establish both the nature and extent of the injuries. It also takes time to get an admission of liability by whoever was at fault. Access Legal's primary aim will be to support you and your family by getting all the help, medical treatment and rehabilitation you might need to speed up your recovery.
