Spinal Cord Injuries During Surgery

Spinal surgery is a common technique for treating chronic pain, neurological disorders and arthritis. But spinal surgery is a high-risk field that requires the expertise and proficiency of a highly skilled surgeon.

We know that even a minor error during a spinal procedure can have devastating consequences for the patient, including severe pain, partial or complete paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia) and even death.

If you or a loved one suffers from a spinal cord injury, you could be entitled to compensation. To schedule a free consultation with our medical malpractice attorneys, call 419-408-9431 or contact us online.

Understanding spinal cord injuries

The spinal cord is the brain's major pathway to communicate with the body. When the spinal cord is injured, the severity of the injury determines it will affect the physiological functions of the body. Permanent injuries and disability can result from even a minor blow to the spinal cord. Pain and suffering, a lifetime of special medical treatment and an overall diminished quality of life can result.

These effects can be too much for any family to handle. At Elk, & Elk, our Toledo attorneys hold negligent caregivers accountable for spinal surgery mistakes and help families obtain justice.

Spinal cord injuries are often the result of negligence

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), about 12,000 people in the U.S. receive serious spinal cord injuries every year. In many cases, these injuries are preventable mistakes that happen because someone -- such as a careless medical provider -- was negligent. If a surgeon made a mistake during your spinal cord surgery that caused a serious spinal cord injury, contact our Toledo attorneys for spinal surgery mistakes today.
