How do I make a claim about cauda equina syndrome
This is specialist work requiring both legal and medical knowledge to understand and appreciate what evidence is required and to interpret that evidence when it is obtained.
Your lawyers must have relationships with the appropriate medical experts who can assess whether your care was indeed sub-standard, conforming for example to NICE guidelines on the treatment of cauda equina syndrome. Their input will be absolutely crucial to your recovery and the success of your compensation claim.
Access Legal must show that the failure or delay in diagnosing your problems, and the impact that may have had on you receiving prompt treatment, was negligent. We must be able to prove that, in all likelihood, you suffered harm as a direct consequence of that sub-standard care.
If you are worried about the treatment (or failure to treat you) that you received you should seek advice from a specialist solicitor straight away. There are time limits to making these claims and it is best if we speak with you as soon as possible after the event so things are still fresh in your mind.
